A lot of times on social media we’ll see fellow designers announcing that they’re booked out for the next six months or that they only have one more spot for the year. Back in the day, when I saw this, it would send me spiraling. I would compare myself to them, doubt myself and wonder […]

Meet Marisa

founder | Designer

It took me years to realize I wasn't clear on who my brand was, what my values were, or which ideal clients I wanted to notice me. I want to save you that time.
