Hi there, I’m Ruth

I’m the imaginative (and Netflix-lovin’) designer, illustrator and heart behind Rumu Creative.

I’m awesome at folding paper planes for my kidlets, a keen traveller, and an absolute pro at devouring gluten-free donuts.

But my real zone of genius is in breathing thoughtful life, heart and soul into your brand by turning inspiration into imaginative visuals inspired by the world around us.


tales told by daring creative dreamers

Ruth is an absolute master at her craft (and a damn good human that makes the whole experience stress-free and magical AF).

Balancing creative illustrative skills with captivating designs that transport you into a totally new world, Ruth is a MUST-HAVE for any business that cares about connecting with their audiences.

I really enjoyed Ruth’s smooth and thorough discovery process, it helped me see my brand vision come to life, and consider all aspects specifically. Ruth’s professionalism is outstanding! But I also love how she made the process feel personal, as she put herself into my big vision and created something amazing.

I received my proposal documents, and Ruth was spot on with each element. So much so that I didn’t want to change a thing! I absolutely love everything she’s done and couldn’t be happier with the design aspects she provided me with.

I highly recommend Ruth, to anyone with a creative business.
