Growing up on a pastoral property north east of Perth has instilled in me a deep love and respect for agriculture and the environment, both of which continue to be an important connection both personally and professionally.
With more than 30 years dedicated to graphic design, particularly in publishing, I have combined my love for all things agricultural and environmental with a passion for creativity and design to develop a diverse portfolio with a strong focus on agricultural and environmental education, research, extension and marketing.
Throughout my career I have worked closely with a range of technical writers, editors and proofreaders, which has helped me develop a keen eye for detail. My long-term professional relationships have given me an appreciation of the key principles that support an understanding of complex technical content through a combination of text and visual tools and layout. It is this appreciation that has led to my involvement in a diverse range of projects.
I pride myself on my attention to detail and ability to offer more than just a creative solution, with a genuine ‘partnership’ approach to each and every project — I’m here to help you create your ideal solution.

“I first worked with Megan (Meg) Hele at Kondinin Group where she was the senior graphic designer for the Group’s flagship publication Farming Ahead as well as working on other special publications such as the Workboot Series.Laureta Wallace, General Manager – Media & Communications, National Farmers Federation
When I have required the services of a graphic designer at various workplaces (Perth and interstate-based) I’ve never hesitated to call Meg. Meg brings to her work the rare combination of agricultural technical understanding, advanced design and creative ability, project management and faultless attention to detail. Meg is highly skilled in the presentation of complex tables and graphs and also has knowledge of accessibility guidelines.
What I love about Meg is her input doesn’t end with design and layout. Hailing from a rural background Meg knows how to communicate with farmers and has a grasp on how farmers ‘take in information’.
Meg is the go-to graphic now for the National Farmers’ Federation where we work together in my role as the General Manager of Media & Communications. In a deadline-driven environment — I can’t overstate how I value having Meg to call on (often with very little lead time). Meg understands the budgetary constraints in which her clients operate within and her work ethic and efficiency are key to why National Farmer’s Federation continues to enlist the services of Megan Hele Design. I’d confidently recommend Meg for any design project.”
