Hi I'm Karla
I'M A DESIGNER, BRANDING EXPERT, MOM &
BRAND DESIGN STUDIO FOUNDER
I always loved the phrase, "be the person you needed when you were younger."
Going back to my early years when I was learning graphic design I would have LOVED to have a mentor. I had talented professors, but there was never enough 1:1 time in the classroom. I often turned to my peers who were a little ahead of me and they helped me improve my skills the most.
I created the Brand Design Love Academy to share the knowledge I’ve collected from my 15+ years of experience in the corporate, agency, and freelance world.
My dream is for you to wake up everyday and feel excited to do work you're passionate about… and I'm here to help you along that journey!
"Karla has a great deal of knowledge in design and provided great resources for this course! I learned a lot and enjoyed learning from her."
“I sold my very first brand identity package for $2500! A year ago I didn't know that was possible. Having learned the skills that you teach in your course together with the confidence that I gained from it has allowed this. I am so grateful!”
Feel confident creating professional logo designs and brand identities and start offering 4-figure packages WITHOUT years of education and experience!
