Hey there fellow go-getter, Carrie here! I'm a connection-driven brand & web designer that's passionate about helping you attract more of the right customers through gorgeous, strategic design.

Even though every corner of the market feels saturated at times, you know you have something special to offer. A unique story to tell. My job as the designer is to help you find the "visual words" to express that special something about your brand that sets you apart ... your unique accent.

Designing meaningful brands that bridge the communication gap between you and your clients

Enter the European accent.

I stayed just long enough to meet my soulmate and husband. In 2011, I rekindled my love of art and started my own design studio, which has appropriately transformed into The Creative Accent.

We specialize in helping other small businesses like yours compete and thrive in the industry, not by trying to be like everyone else, but by accentuating their own unique strengths.

Our goal is to understand your needs and translate your essence into stunning visuals that propel you forward toward your bigger business goals.

Growing up in beautiful southwest Virginia I had a pretty thick Appalachian accent along with an accurate jumpshot and a love of drawing. Art was a passion early on and basketball was my business plan, which led me to a D1 scholarship at Valparaiso University in Indiana.

Enter the mid-west accent.

At Valpo, I lost some of my southern twang but graduated with honors and a degree in Art and French. After college, I followed my passion for language, culture, and basketball, moving overseas to Belgium where I continued to play the game and learn Dutch on the side.
