• “We wanted a set of consistent Microsoft Office templates, following a refresh of our company brand. Shayla was a pleasure to work with, and took the time to really pinpoint our requirements. Our new Word and PowerPoint templates are incredibly easy to use and look great. Shayla also incorporated some ‘deluxe’ features into our templates, such as our meeting minutes template; when we write an action item within the document, it is automatically inserted into a summary list of actions on the last page! This functionality occurs seamlessly, with correct formatting throughout. Features such as these end up saving us precious time, making us more efficient. “Kiran Groom, AELERT
  • “Shayla has helped me with many things – from business card design to simple things such as tables within word documents. She is clear and concise when explaining her actions, and always relays information in a way that is understandable, patient, and intelligent. I would highly recommend her skills and abilities to anyone wishing to hire her for anything to do with Microsoft Office and design work.”Bridgett McDonald, The Able Editor


I’m Shayla and I know Microsoft Word inside and out. I think of myself as a people pleaser, a problem solver and I’m an avid bulldog enthusiast, based in Melbourne, Australia.

What do I know?

I create Microsoft templates and I have a shiny certification from Microsoft which proves I know some (OK a lot) of stuff about Word and Microsoft Office. I know how people use documents, the mistakes they make, and how to fix them quickly which help me create some really cool templates.

What else do I do?

Most of the time I’m very ‘left brain’ and in my free time I can be found tinkering with some code to add into the templates. I love a challenge, and love to learn, I don’t let a problem defeat me. When I switch that side off, I dabble with photography, although some say I have too many photos of my bulldog already!

What can I do for you?

I strongly believe that communication is the key to a successful project. As a sole trader, I take pride in completing all the work myself, so you can be assured of consistency, quality and confidentiality in every stage of the project.

What next?

Do you have a brilliantly vast idea, but you’re not sure it’s even possible? Get in touch, i’d love to hear from you.
