I'm Christie, the graphic designer and branding strategist behind the name.  

As a child I loved to draw, paint and use my hands to create new things. My favorite spot was at our cottage in Michigan where I spent my summers either in the water or learning to macramé and paint. My dream was to build a career in a creative field.

After graduating with a degree in Marketing I spent a few years as a project manager, and then marketing director, in the retail real estate industry. My project management experience has given me the discipline required to stay organized and on top of my creative projects.

The design industry is ever-changing and as a designer I continue to learn new things. I am a self-professed font lover and am crazy about color.  

When I’m not in front of my computer, I can be found hanging out with my husband, son, and two dogs, practicing yoga or working out at the Bar Method.

I’d love to get to know more about you, your business goals, and how we can work together to meet them.
