We specialise in collaborating with founders (like yourself) to build brands that become the talk of the town by intertwining strategic thinking with strong design. People often say our work is bold, charismatic and oozes personality – so we think this is our specialty.
We're in the business of keeping things lighthearted,
honest and giving the people what they want, which
is page that doesn’t beat around the
bush and quickly lists what we do and what we charge.
But, we’re here to convince you that our studio is so much
more than a list of services and a number on a page, and by the end of this
scroll we hope you want to work with us because you feel
we are right up your alley* and would be a good fit for
your project - not just because the price is right.
Our capabilities include brand identity, strategy, direction, packaging, and websites – covering everything in between. Whether you operate an e-commerce shop, provide creative services, run a not-for-profit, or are an emerging start-up, as long as you’re a nice person who’s ready to give it a good crack, you’re welcome in our world.

Alleyway Designs is an independent company led by Ally Griffith, who is currently bouncing between Canada and Australia. Our in-house team consists of a Creative Director and two Senior Designers, but we're never too proud to ask for help, so if a project requires it, we gladly turn to our network of external creatives. Staying true to our small-team philosophy, we cheekily scoff at hoity-toity traditional agencies, preferring to dance to our own, less pretentious beat. Having a decade of design experience and running a business with a human-centric approach, we don’t just talk the talk; we walk the walk. We are proud to have created a welcoming space where collaboration is paramount, as we truly believe the sharing of ideas forges a connection that's not only productive but genuinely enjoyable for everyone involved.
“This is the second time I have had the pleasure of working with Ally and I think it must be our six year anniversary this year of becoming both collaborators as well as friends - she is just one of those humans that you want to be friends with, a good egg I call them. After such a positive experience the first time round it was inevitable I would be seeking out Ally to help me bring Soma Medicinals to life too. We had our meeting at a coffee shop in town and I poured out my vision to her as we bounced back and forth with excitement and ideas - I love this about Ally, you can feel her passion behind the project and know that you have put your vision into the right hands.
When we received the final assets and brand guide, we were blown away with just how much the identity embodied my vision, she had really listened and it was perfect. It actually exceeded our expectations and we did a little happy dance after seeing them haha. We only have good things to say and can't recommend Alleyway Designs enough. Big Love.”
– Morgen & Nath, Founders (Soma Medicinals) “Ally and her team helped us develop beautiful and thoughtful branding for our business, Yes Maté. It is in tune with our customer base, with so much personality - which has made the launch of our business a hell of a lot easier. Without having to say anything, people are immediately drawn to the branding and packaging. It's unique, simple and clear which has allowed us to stand out in the crowd in a saturated market. Thanks again legends!”
– Yani, Founder (Yes Maté)
“The branding process with Alleyway was everything I could've imagined, and more. From the very start, Ally was great with comms (a big plus for me), and totally nailed my entire brief. I often get a little nervous when it comes to engaging someone to bring my brand to life – you never quite know what the end product will look and feel like... and you want to know *for sure* that the price will pay off. But it's safe to say, I am OB.SESSED. with the Naughty Nancy identity and am kinda devastated that the process is now over. I genuinely feel more invigorated and excited about my business now, and am super excited for the next chapter of Naughty Nancy thanks to Alleyway Designs.”
