We asked Kay to help us revamp our website as we were not getting a lot of bookings direct through the site. Kay made changes to the appearance of our site without losing the brand we had worked hard to achieve and helped us to link our new booking system. Kay was very professional, quick to understand what we were looking for and continues to help us learn more on how to improve our site and how to increase the number of visitors reaching our site. Since making the improvements 6 months ago we have had a 30% increase in the number of bookings now coming direct through our website. We would be happy to recommend Breakaway Creative to anyone looking for help or advice.

Kay Shanley from Breakaway Creative has been instrumental in the reinvigoration of Lemonthyme Wilderness Retreat over the last 2 years. Her ability to isolate the core distinctive elements of the experience offered by Lemonthyme, and disseminate an appealing and consistent message that captures those elements in symbolic, visual, written and verbal mediums, is exciting and exceptionally effective.
There’s no doubt Kay’s contribution has had a significant impact on guest response to our renewed marketing and ultimately on the increase in our rooms occupied over the last 18 months – up an incredible 19% from the 2014 calendar year to the 2015 calendar year.
Rob Atkinson, Lemonthyme Wilderness Retreat
I wanted to let you know that I featured the Lemonthyme website on our homepage! Thanks again for letting us do that. I think it’s a beautiful site. I am really happy to show it off.

Kay Shanley from Breakaway Creative offers an affordable high quality product. In the past months Kay has developed three websites, logo design, marketing material, and support for organisations I am connected with. All beneficiaries have been extremely impressed with the developed product. I have experienced other commercial website and marketing designers charging quadruple the price and ending up with an inferior product. I will always choose Breakaway Creative in the future; Kay goes over and beyond what is expected to ensure customer satisfaction. I would highly recommend Breakaway Creative as a first point of call for your graphic design and website needs.
Mark Boonstra, Impact Communities
I have used the services of Kay Shanley for over 10 years and in all that time she has offered a highly professional and personalised service. Kay has been able to adapt to any task set on behalf of my clients. She can turn the most ordinary item into something beautiful to look at and highly readable. She is a pleasure to work with and has kept up with developments in the industry. I would recommend Kay Shanley to anyone who wants a professional approach to their work.
Evelyn Mason, EM Associates
Not only is Kay a first class designer, she has also been a pleasure to work with over the years. Kay has a very high level of integrity and goes out of her way to ensure both deadlines and client expectations are met. Kay is very aware that our clients’ success is a reflection of her work and responds accordingly. Her work has always been of the highest quality, incorporating a creative awareness and originality coupled with a commercial and practical understanding of the ultimate purpose for the design.
Francis Child, The Association Specialists
Without exception, every communication piece Kay has provided has greatly assisted in appealing to our target audience. More importantly, Kay’s understanding of fundraising that is incorporated in her design, has assisted us influencing our key audience to support us. With her close attention to detail, elegant designs and superior creative ability, Kay’s talent for graphic design is without question. In particular, her consistency of design for each audience, appeal and the organisation at large allows a continuity in the messages we seek to communicate.
Karen Gair, Monte Sant' Angelo College
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Kay, professionally and personally. She has the capacity to swiftly discern the desired objectives and outcomes, translating these into a contemporary style that provides valuable effect across various target audiences. Her extensive networks and comprehensive experience across a range of media and communication tools provide added value that is often less easily found in a regional community. Most importantly, her creative approach really assists in setting her client apart with simple and stylish, but cost-effective differentiation.
Heather Francis, Royal Hobart Hospital Research Foundation
We’ve been working with Kay Shanley for over 6 years and we’ve got a fantastic working relationship – she is part of our team. Kay is very responsive with a high level of professionalism. We can rely on her consistency and high standards and she has a great understanding of our needs and company branding requirements and is able to add her creativity and design expertise to each of our marketing campaigns which include direct mail brochures, postcards, logos, web banner ads, display banners and event branding, powerpoint presentations and delegate handouts.
