Brave + Beautiful. It’s who you are.
It’s a struggle, taking the risk — making your voice heard, showing your work to the world. Pouring your heart and soul into something and then putting it out there for everyone to see. You are courageous. Fearless. An adventurer.
And that bravery, that courage — it’s a thing of beauty. Being open and raw and transparent is more of what this world needs. And the act of taking the risk creates beauty — it builds in you strength and virtue. And what you have to offer is beautiful. It’s filled to the brim with your passions, your dreams, your heart. You. Beautiful.
I truly believe that you have something entirely unique to offer the world — yourself. That whether you’re blogging about babies or selling shoes or planning parties — what you’re really putting forth, what your customers and clients really want to know, what you’re really releasing into the world is you. And so everything involved in your brand: your logo, your business card, your content, your website, your social media presence, should reflect who you are.
And I want to help make that happen.
So then who am I?
I’m Kirsten — I’ve always had a penchant for the creative, but a degree in graphic design was too intimidating for me. Instead, I threw myself in headfirst, somehow landing a job as a graphic designer right out of college. Terrified they’d catch on to my complete lack of experience, I pulled all nighters teaching myself the programs, and a few months later I was able to merge a longing for the creative with a bent toward the practical and organized. I quickly went on to teach myself web design, taking awful low-paying jobs to learn the code and try and keep up with the ever-changing industry, and loving the movement and endless possibilities the Internet offered.
Nearly ten years later, I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I love the flexibility and spontaneity of this work. I love creating beautiful, useful tools for fiercely brave individuals. I love working with clients and helping dreams along. I love the newness each project offers. I love helping you put yourself in your brand.
I’m a wife and mother in my thirties. I grew up in Atlanta and met my husband at the University of Georgia. Just after we got married, we moved to Portland, Oregon, where we spent eight glorious years and added three children to our family. In 2015, we moved to Nashville, Tennessee where we’re planting a church called Sozo Community. I spend most days equipped with a cup of coffee, lots of giggles and a search for beauty in everything.
