Welcome. I’m Megan, Ruby Studio’s owner and web designer.

Ruby Studio is a small web design company based in Hilton in the KZN Midlands.

I work with start-ups and small-to-medium-sized businesses that want a well-designed, user-friendly website to help them grow and attract more customers and clients.

All web design packages include search engine optimisation, which will help your website rank highly in Google and be found when people search for your products and services online.

I also offer blogging and content creation services, as well as a professional photography service if you need images for your website and / or social media.

I became intrigued by web design when I started blogging in 2010. At the time I was working as a journalist at a financial magazine in the UK.

I set-up my own self-hosted WordPress website with no experience of having done it before. It was frustrating… but I loved the challenge and was drawn to the world of web development, coding and lots of problem solving! Thank-you Google and friendly online communities.

I moved back to South Africa in 2013 and started working at a creative agency in Pietermaritzburg.

My job role encompassed many things – public relations, graphic design, technical writing, social media management, blogging, search engine optimisation, digital marketing and website management for clients.

Back then, most of the websites we managed were static html sites and changes were made via ftp and Adobe Dreamweaver. My web development knowledge deepened – learning more front-end coding, WordPress and Shopify, plus web hosting and domain management


I started Ruby Studio in June 2017 a few months after my daughter, Emma Ruby, was born. Emma’s arrival made me take a good, hard look at my life and what I wanted. And I wanted to be my own boss doing what I love and feel passionate about – helping small businesses grow by designing beautiful, results-driven websites for them.

why WORK WITH ruby studio

I care deeply about designing professional websites of the highest standard.

My approach is holistic – I work alongside businesses to discover and identify why they need a website and what they want the site to achieve. From that point, I design a website that will meaningfully benefit them.
