              hen I started Femme Collective Studio, I was escaping a 9-5 corporate cubicle with a vision to create a safe place for creative entrepreneurs that don't feel like they fit in anywhere else. A place to freely dream and express their creative vision without judgement - so I could help turn it into a reality.
Fast forward and that business has grown into a Team of five incredible women who get to hand-craft brands & websites for our incredible clients worldwide. We're here to help you too.

The "beginning"

A trip to Disney & a short animation class...and I found my calling. Or so I thought.

journey.

The "school years"

High school starts & so do my insecurities - I can't do this. What's a safer direction? Marine biologist? I'm not even 18 how am I supposed to know what I want? Community College it is - then online school for business [because that's the safest thing I can think of].

the "Shitshow"

the "Present"

The next few years felt like a hot mess: A break from college - Forever 21 - Finish college - HR Intern - Regulatory Affairs Specialist - an escape solo trip to Belize where I met my now hubs - A cross country move to be with him.

There I was in Ohio of all places, jobless - BOOM - a vision came to me combining every misstep I'd taken & Femme was born!

A business born from my love of illustration & design [Disney], small business [college], managing a team [Forever 21], helping people [Human Resources], avoiding a job I want to escape from / a cubicle / and help women in business [Regulatory Affairs].

Now we're a Team of 5 misfit women creatives serving other misfit creatives worldwide.

        am a family and women’s portrait photographer. I was in need of a major overhaul. I had talked with a couple designers but it wasn’t until I actually talked to Kris from Femme Collective Studio that I knew I was in the right place. Right off the bat I felt heard and important. It was never just a one word conversation, I really appreciated that Kris took the time to go that extra mile in our conversations. If you are looking to rebrand your business and you are looking for someone who makes you feel like you are the only one they are working with at the time, someone has a way of helping you articulate the direction feel look and any emotion you’re wanting your clients to feel - this is the company that you want. I felt like they truly got me. They knocked it out of the park. During the process of my brand & web design I had a tragedy in the family and I reached out to them for help. Without hesitation, with so much love and so much support, I felt that they stopped what they were doing to help me put into words how I was paying tribute to my sister. I will forever be grateful.

           ithin 2 weeks they had my brand done and then a couple weeks later they had my whole website done. I remember the first time I saw both my brand and my homepage and both of them made me tear up. I felt really heard throughout the whole process and they’re such kind and sweet women to work with but also incredibly knowledgable and so creative so the whole thing just came together better than I could have ever imagined or expected. Not to mention the after care of the whole process - they are really hands on, they are super willing to answer questions, the tutorials are really thorough and completely filled with all of the information I needed to take care of and upkeep everything on my own. It was an amazing experience. My whole website has my heart, I get so many compliments on it. How cohesive and original it looks. I hope you enjoy your time working with them. I think they’ll make you feel like you’re putting out to the world what you’ve always wanted to put out.

       knew that if I wanted to take my business to the next level that I would really need a strong brand and website to go along with who I was trying to attract and where I was trying to go with my business. I was looking everywhere for designers and when I stumbled across Femme Collective Studio I instantly knew that they were the ones. And to say that I was not disappointed would be an understatement. Kris and her team absolutely blew it out of the water. The whole experience was super exciting from the beginning to the end…I am so so happy that I chose them. The investment is one of the best investments that I made in my business so far and it truly was just amazing from beginning to end. When I got back my first draft I felt like Kris and her Team had read my mind. I felt like they knew what I needed when I didn’t even know what I needed. So streamlined and smooth. Kris was always there to communicate me and answer any questions that I had. I tell everyone about them and the experience I had. If you are a creative business and are looking for a company that’s going to help you build your perfect brand and website look no further…I promise you that the investment is worth it.

       hey did such an incredible job! I honestly can’t say enough good thing about them. I’m from Canada and they worked with me to understand my grant program and they gave me a brand & website that feels like me. One of the things that I found that was most helpful was that they do SEO and how fast everything was. I can’t get over that because they are so attentive, they answer all of your questions, if you need anything Kris is so on top of her game. Then the website is done and it feels like you just started. I can’t say enough good things about them. 10 out of 10 would recommend because they really do care about their clients and their brands.
