Hi, I'm Christina Stone.
Founder of Goldfinch Marketing. Designer, Marketer and Chatterbox.

I know it’s hard choosing to put your faith in someone and letting them help shape your business. It’s not an easy decision because it’s an important one!

When it comes to finding the right designer for you, it’s important to consider not only what they can do but how they make you feel. Working with someone you like and have rapport with can make a huge difference to the outcome of a project.

Before you decide whether I’m that person, find out more about me below and see if I still float your boat!

What do I bring to the party?

I’ve helped small businesses to promote themselves since 2012, in various roles including; Chair of Trustees, Student Union President, New Business Manager, Business Engagement Specialist and Marketing Manager. If you’d like to find out more about my career history, please check out my LinkedIn profile.

When I’m not working, I enjoy making things – there’s not many crafts I haven’t tried! I also love photographing nature, especially birds and other wildlife. My favourite kind of walks are woodland or seaside walks. In the summer there’s nothing I love more than trying to spot fish whilst snorkeling on the South Coast, then enjoying a vegetarian BBQ.

I try to be eco-conscious and consider sustainable options throughout my life and business. You’ll find my own printed marketing materials use recycled paper and where possible, I encourage my clients to use the same. If you want luxury foiled, laminated finishes, that’s not a problem at all but if we can get them on recycled paper, even better!

My clients often become friends and that’s just the way I like it! I’d love to get to know you, so why not get in touch for a chat or come and join me on my social channels.

p.s. this photo is of me just after I picked up my Highly Commended Award in the Professional Services Category at the My VIP Awards in 2019.

what you'll experience if you work with me...

Who I work with...

The business owners I love working with the most are organised, fun and ready to up their business game. They want to work with me so they feel fully equipped and confident to start or grow their business and achieve their goals.

Predominantly I work with female business owners based in Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire and across the South Coast. However, due to the digital nature of my work and the joys of technology, I can work with wonderful entrepreneurs from all over the UK (I’ve even worked with a few in Spain)!

These are a handful of brilliant businesses I’ve had the pleasure of working with:

“Very creative, collaborative, quick to respond and a joy to work with.”

My background

Let me tell you my story...

A few years ago (ok, maybe more than I’d like to admit), armed with a degree in Fashion Design and a passion for being busy I decided to start a side hustle making and selling homeware and accessories. Now, I don’t like to do things half-heartedly so I went all in. I’m talking business cards, branded packaging, stickers, social media posts, a website, a marketing plan, a business plan, a market stall set up…the lot.

Why did I go all in before making (m)any sales? Because that’s how I am. I believe that you get out what you put in.

Fast forward about 6 years and I decided to leave my full-time Marketing Manager role so I could share my creativity and skills with the wonderful small business community.

Having a timeless, consistent brand, beautiful website and gorgeous marketing materials gives you confidence. It’s so bloomin’ lovely having a business you’re proud of and I want all my clients to feel that ‘eeee’ of excitement as I bring their ideas to life.
