Spectrum was started by two sisters Sophie and Hannah in April 2014. A true start up, the company was created from Sophie’s garage in Barry – just around the corner from the Goodsheds.
Sophie and Hannah’s love of fashion and beauty led them to a joint career in the industry. They worked successfully together as freelance creatives for start-ups, building and marketing other brands when they decided that they could use these skills to create their own brand and Spectrum was born.
The sisters applied their creative vision and fashion flair to the humble makeup brush – giving it an all pink makeover and the colourful designs disrupted the makeup industry from then on!
A true start-up, Spectrum was created from scratch in Sophie’s garage in Barry where it stayed for two years while Sophie and Hannah packed orders in their pyjamas and used social media to grow an online presence. Now a globally recognised brand distributed widely with a range of partners including Boots, Superdrug, Beauty Bay and ASOS and as proud Barry girls; the Sisters are so excited to move their HQ to the Goodsheds and open a retail shop in the Container Village.
Apart from the rooftop bar…moving the business back to Barry as part of the Goodsheds development was a no-brainer. The community spirit, vibrancy and versatility of the Goodsheds development is so appealing to us as a growing business. Our HQ is where we live and breathe Spectrum so to be able to merge lifestyle and work at the Goodsheds is just a dream!
