Keep it Simple, but Significant

she likes to keep it simple


Owner + designer, Lesley

Owner + designer, Lesley Pocklington, created Swell Made Co. out of a need to simplify, but enhance her life. She wanted to challenge the status quo that comes along with building a career and raising a family (she’s a mom of 2) — so, she designed a business and life that worked for her. A lifelong lover of good design and stationery, Lesley wanted to share the simple things that bring her delight. She has developed a style and range of products (that continues to grow) that speak to swell people, like you.

As an avid small business supporter, being surrounded by a community of people who are living their dreams is one of Lesley’s favourite things about small business life. From shop owners to like-minded businesses, she loves to hear the stories of how brands came to life. She still works with select small businesses to help develop those stories through art direction and graphic design (her first true love).

You can often find Lesley sipping coffee or wine, exploring great landscapes near and far (with kids in tow) and humming 90s R&B.
