Throughout the past year I’ve become increasingly amazed, thankful, and inspired by my close group of girlfriends. They are the most supportive group of women while being total girl bosses – think: Designers, Producers, and Entrepreneurs. Women supporting women is a beautiful thing, y’all.
This being said, I’d cannot wait to introduce you to the genius behind the Sundry Sunday’s branding – Kelsey! Kelsey and I initially connected through our large group of friends, and have become really close. She’s the North to my South, the Martha to my Snoop Dogg. When I came to her with the idea of Sundry Sundays she took the branding idea and ran with it! I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better designer or partnership and really couldn’t have embarked on this journey without her! She’s not just our branding designer, who puts together bomb-ass collateral – just look at everything she’s put together, but part content consultant and part therapist.
Because she’s essentially part of the Sundry Sundays family, we wanted to ask her a few questions for everyone to get to know her!
Without further ado – I’m pleased to introduce Ms. Kelsey Cruikshank.
