We created BigFizz to help socially conscious, eco-minded solopreneurs and small business owners get the best foundation for marketing their business. We specially want to work with people who want to make a difference, with a message that must be heard.

We understand how it can be confusing, challenging and daunting to work with different specialists who tell you conflicting stories about building your brand. In the end, being confused could stop you getting started. And our aim is to keep things clear and simple.

This is why we created BigFizz 10 years ago

Our collaboration brings together Big Idea (Lynne) and HubFizz (Karen) and is designed to give you a cohesive approach to getting your branding, messaging and website sorted, with ease and joy.

We want you to have a brand you feel proud of so you can get your message out to your audience and elevate your business.

And we want to provide you with insights, aha moments, clarity and growing confidence throughout the process of working with us.

About us

We’re committed to reducing our own impact on the planet and working with people who are determined to make a difference, however big or small. We do our bit by supporting community and conservation projects and shopping local.

Lynne Stainthorpe

Brand Strategist. Brand Messaging Ninja.

With over 25 years brand building experience gained working on big brands like Unilever and Dulux, I now focus on helping ethical business owners make their brands human, meaningful and memorable.


Lynne loves bringing the magic of branding to ethical small businesses, who want to make a difference and be distinctive – particularly coaches, consultants, creatives and therapists.

Brand Messaging Ninja

My special skills include getting to the heart and soul of your brand, identifying what your brand stands for, and clarifying your core brand messaging in human terms. I’m expert in using colour in your branding, taking into account market sector usage, colour symbolism, psychology, spiritual and cultural associations, as well as your brand values and personality.

Brand values - in a nutshell

Curiosity – asking the right questions to gain insights.
Individuality – embracing your brand distinctiveness.
Social Justice – helping you make lives better.  
Affinity with Nature –  doing what’s best for planet, animals and people.

Other interests

Researching brands that do good things – and also those that don’t (I keep a naughty list). Highlighting trends that help business owners to elevate their business.


Watching movies, going to the cinema and theatre, listening to Radio 4, reading fiction and business books. Learning new stuff, herding cats, practising yoga and mindfulness.

We'd love to work with you

"I had an outdated website which I felt didn’t represent my ‘why’, my personal brand and therefore my value to clients. It was a really transformational and enjoyable experience. Business is really great. I get a lot more client enquiries and new business through my website. There a lot of Career Coaches out there, so it was really important for my website to really shine a light on my personality and style as well as my coaching credibility."
