HELLO, welcome

I’m Sharifa

Born in the Caribbean and raised in Washington, D.C. I’ve been working on creating graphics and websites ever since I was in high school and have been doing it professionally for close to seven years. In 2016, I launched the branding kit, that was designed for beginner bloggers to get started on creating branded promotional graphics.

My Mission

what I can do for you

I’m the graphic designer behind this studio. Since launch, I’ve been fortunate to work alongside amazing entrepreneurs, bloggers and business owners from all walks of life. Each client project that I take on goes beyond just designing graphics, I want to enjoy the process of building a brand and getting their right mission and values across. Currently, my main focus is creating designs for upcoming entrepreneurs that can be used as printed materials for their brand or their website. I also specialize in WordPress & Squarespace web design, social media and publication design.

Timeline

2018 – currently

If you’ve been a long time follower, you’ll know that this all began in September of 2015. But my online journey started years before during college. My journey hasn’t been easy, it still isn’t but it’s sure fun to look back and see how far I’ve come. 2018 is going to be a year filled with new adventures. I plan to take several new paths in the coming months and hope you stick along for the ride.
