about

you're vibrant, fun, and (of course) really good at what you do. Does your brand show off your sparkling personality?

You're a hairstylist, and you know that when she gets her hair done it's the only self-pampering that she'll allow for herself. You want to be a safe place to land, an ear to truly listen, and an encourager as she leaves feeling not only more beautiful on the outside, but truly heard and empowered on the inside.

To you, business is personal. You run a heart-fueled biz, and in person you’re confident, compelling, and your clients love you. But when it comes to defining your brand and showing up online, you feel overwhelmed. You struggle to communicate who you are and what you're about.

You're a photographer and you spend all day with couples on one of the most important day of their lives. You juggle lenses, in-laws, and hectic schedules because you believe in marriage, you love celebrations, and you know it's an honor to be a part of their best day ever.

You're a makeup artist, and you believe that natural beauty is the best kind of beauty. You know that her wedding celebration starts in your chair and your time with the bride can set the tone for the whole day, so you show up with mimosas ready to help her feel relaxed and radiant.

what i do

charissa wong

Our conversation felt like constant epiphanies to me. You put into words my (some conscious and some subconscious) desires and dreams for my business, so I left feeling like you had made it all make sense. Working with you has been an experience that has brought much clarity.

A well designed visual identity should always have a solid brand strategy to back it up. Although your brand should be a genuine reflection of who you are, it should also be strategically designed to appeal to your dream clients. Because when you know who you are, who you want to serve, and how to bridge the gap, it changes everything.

intentional design

I believe in equipping and empowering women to own their unique strengths and personality. Brand design should never be trendy or copy other people’s ideas. I strive to create designs that are unique and timeless.

celebrate who you are

As a small business owner, I believe in supporting other business owners and approaching relationships with a spirit of community and collaboration rather than competition. Proud member of the Rising Tide Society.

community over competition

As a follower of Jesus, I believe that I am called to a life of love and service. I aim to approach all of my work as just that, an opportunity to love and serve others. I also believe I am called to give back as much as possible. One way I do this is by committing to donate at least 10% of my profits to organizations that nurture and empower women and children. I am currently donating to the Preemptive Love Coallition, a non-profit organization that brings relief to families fleeing war in Syria and Iraq, helps refugees rebuild their lives, and provides lifesaving medical care for children in conflict zones.

giving Back

I believe in choosing joy in all circumstances and that business should be fun whenever possible. I also believe in defining business success on my own terms and creating a business that supports my life, not a life that supports my business. 

choose joy

let's do this thing!

I was one of those kids who always knew what I wanted to do when I grew up, and spent hours designing for my dad's small business (entrepreneaurship runs in my family!) After earning a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design, I went on to earn a Masters in Communication Studies (which is literally the study of how humans communicate with each other). Thus I was able to combine my two passions: design and people. After working with various nonprofits, I finally decided to take the leap and do what I had wanted all along: launch my own design studio. I’m intimately familiar with the satisfaction and joy as well as the overwhelm and fear that can come with actively pursuing a business doing what you love; which is why helping others on the same journey is one of my favorite things in the world.

Still Here? Let's be friends already!
