WE AIM for "O.M.G." Always. We aim for emails that have an absurd number of exclamation points. We aim for a level of detail in our work that will go unnoticed by most. We don't aim to please. We aim to knock your dang socks off.
WE GET how awesome your love it. We get why this art is important to you. We get to work with you, and we are really honored. We get how important The Bachelor is. We get why your dog needs his own Instagram account. We get it, because we get you.
WE MAKE one-of-a-kind pieces for once-in-a-lifetime days. We make sense out of your 19 emails. We make art with heart. And happy tears. We make things you want your future kids to see.
WE LOVE weird, different, and funky. We love real couples. We love creating custom designs that have never been done before. We love your ideas. We love all love in all shapes and sizes. We love your love.

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.
