So, how exactly did Miss Design Berry get started? Who are these amazing ladies turning out kickass art? So glad you asked.
It started with me (Kristin). I usually say that it all started when I graduated and moved to NYC in 2011. But, if I’m being honest, it started WAY before then. I’ve always loved art. And, aside from a brief time in 3rd grade when I decided I wanted to be the first female MLB player, I’ve always known that art would play a big part in my life.
But, let’s get back to 2011. I quickly saw that having my first “real job” didn’t leave me with much cash left over once rent was paid in the big city. To earn some spending money, I opened up an Etsy shop selling custom art. Over the next few years I slowly grew my side-hustle, and in 2015 I took a leap of faith, left my advertising job (after paying off my student loans, hallelujah) and threw myself Miss Design Berry full-time.
My how we’ve grown from that little Etsy shop. My venture as a solo-prenuer has evolved into a team of 25 amazing women. Women who are are here for you 24/7 - literally. So, don’t be surprised if you get emails from us at 3am (some of us are night owls). And yes, when you pop into our live chat, it’s a live person on the other end (you’d be surprised how many people ask us if we are real…). And, we really love our clients. Like, a lot. When we send you the first proof of your art and you tell us that you cried / LOL’d / texted your mom when you saw it - that right there is what it’s all about for us.
