About Us

Malvolio is a creative design studio, founded in 2009 by husband and wife team Chris and Sarah McLennan. We specialise in graphic design, website design and illustration.


Based in Somerville on the Mornington Peninsula, our days consist of working on design projects for small and medium businesses, events and local government, along with working on illustrations for our stationery range and commercial clients. The variety of projects in our studio means that we never have a boring day!

We’re problem-solvers, communicators, obsessed about design that works and love a good cup of coffee. We share our days in the studio with our two little sons who make life bright, busy and fun!

Sarah is the creative side of the business, and especially loves the concept development stage of each project that comes in the door. She spends every quiet moment working on new illustrations and stationery designs. Chris is the process side of the business, making sure all aspects of each project are covered and is running on schedule. He’s technical, loves working on programs and strategies, and coming up with ideas from different angles.

Our clients mean everything to us, and we love working with them. Through working together, we build long-term partnerships with our clients – with some partnerships surpassing the 10-year milestone and still going strong.

Our love of design keeps our eyes open and our minds hungry…we’re always on the search for new technologies, processes, trends and materials that can add to design outcomes from our studio. We love our job, and hope it shows through in every project we work on.

Sarah is a professional member of the Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA).
