A YOUNG mum who has launched a series of solo business projects said that her double-award wins are in honour of her son.

Previously working as a fundraiser for the Guide Dogs charity, Paige Rose, from Leigh, launched 'Hapn Creative' last year and now helps numerous brands and clients to connect better with their audiences.

Working solo from a shared office space in Manchester, 'Hapn Creative' offers a range of digital marketing support, such as graphic design, logo design, website improvements, social media growth, and more.

Quickly building a respected reputation over the past 18 months, 'Hapn Creative' was named as 'Best Digital Design Agency' in the Media Innovator Awards and 'Best Newcomer' in the Lancashire Business Awards.

Although Paige is over the moon with the award wins and recognition that they will provide her relatively new business, this is not the only thing that the young entrepreneur has on her plate.

Looking for ways to help her financial situation during the pandemic, the young mum launched clothing brand 'Luna Thorn', which specialises in organic and sustainable outdoor clothes, and has sold to well-known influencers and clients across the world.

Aiming to expand her 'Hapn' brand, Paige also has a number of other projects she will launch over the next year, including 'Hapn Hustle Club' to network and collaborate with local creatives, and 'Sh*t Hapns' which will be a podcast series focusing on behind-the-scenes stories of business owners and employees.

There is also a self-published children's book in the pipeline, called 'Stores Hapn', which will draw on her experience as a young mum in business, while Paige is also aiming to go back to University to receive further accreditation.

Paige, 27, said: "The award wins are a great achievement to receive and it shows how 'Hapn Creative' has grown over the past year.

"I do have a lot to manage but I have a young son and everything I do, I do for him.

"I grew up in a council estate and I want him to have everything in life that I didn't, and show him that you can do anything that you put your mind to."
