Stephanie is a Seattle-based illustrator. On Monday, I worked with her on some fresh new branding photos for her website. We shared some insightful discussions, laughs, and enjoyed latte from Slate Coffee Shop.
Brand imagery includes your headshots & profile images, as well as images of the physical products you may sell.
“Since high school, I wanted to start my own business with social impact in mind. However, it wasn’t until I took a Creating a Company entrepreneurship course at the University of Washington that my dream started to become a reality.”
Stephanie would meet an equally-minded soul sista from that business class, Joyce Tang, who would share her social impact mission. They would become cofounders of a women’s health-centric startup called Bathing Beauteas, while partnering with UnBound – a nonprofit that supports survivors of sex trafficking.
So Stephanie, I’m aware that you are a freelance designer/illustrator on the side of your 9 to 5. How did you get into the cool designs you do that we admire on your Instagram feed?
