stu·dio cres·cent 
Stems from the Latin word, crescere: to grow, to create, to expand. 

A small studio with a big heart. Here, we celebrate new beginnings, embrace change, and encourage and infinite growth.

My creativity wasn’t celebrated when I was younger, which is exactly why I want to celebrate every one of my clients when I see them find their flow with an idea of their own! 💃  You have unlimited potential, my friend.

celebrating YOUR CREATIVITY

I started this business because you deserve to go after your dreams, defining individually what freedom and success mean to you all while doing what you love.

It's your life. And I am here to support you.

Chase your dreams! No one else will.
(Except me! I’ll be your Brand BFF!)

Studio Crescent (previously known as Grace & Oak) was born out of my love for simple design that works and helping women feel less alone in business. Getting to know you, weaving in stories and making a difference in girls’ education in Mozambique brings a spark to my life that is brighter than ever.

As a brand and web designer in Ottawa, I want to know what you want to be when you “grow up!” To me, branding is about becoming who you are meant to be all along and allowing yourself to step into your potential. That's where the magic happens - so I want to hear all of your ambitions, goals, and desires as we carve out this new beginning for you. Together, we’ll uncover what makes you stand out, while giving your brand that wow factor that will inspire your audience and book clients too.

This is why, now, as a brand and web designer in Ottawa, I want to help you do the same.

IF THERE’S ONE THING I HAVE LEARNED, IT’S TO CHASE your DREAMS, not ANYONE ELSE’S.

I used to be a 5-star event and wedding planner. Despite the picture of “success,” I never saw myself as the expert and there was a part of me that felt misaligned and out of place. After spending a lot of time doing what I thought someone else wanted me to do, I realized it wasn’t my “why” that was driving my business, it was my ego.

I just had to look deep inside me and follow those breadcrumbs in my life that have led me to where I am today. The 15-year-old me who spent hours designing my friends' Nexopia profiles is the same girl that I am today — just older, wiser, probably louder and definitely a bit more stylish. And that girl felt the most alive bringing ideas to life and helping others thrive.

By doing what I love with strategy, purpose and impact, I’ve found a magical “state of flow” that I can’t wait to uncover for you and your biz too!

I STARTED THIS BUSINESS to REDEFINE what SUCCESS AND FREEDOM MEANT to ME.

To put it straight, I was never asked the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I molded myself, people pleased, and lost my identity somewhere along the way —  and similar to most in their late-20s, I suddenly felt like I was missing something bigger.

Tired of running in circles, I finally decided to face my self-limiting beliefs head on - that I wasn't "creative enough"(crazy, eh?!)

Back up - how did i get here exactly?
