TO ELEVATE FEMALE ENTREPRENEURSHIP THROUGH VISIONARY DESIGN AND EXPAND BRAND CAPACITY BY FOSTERING TRUE CONNECTIONS.
I'm Chantelle, a seeker of everyday magic and wonder, a conscious connector and crystal collector. When I realized that the lack of a website and a visual identity was keeping female entrepreneurs from playing big, I set out to help them communicate the wonder and why of their brand + business online. Clear Quartz Creative was founded on the belief in the collective energy of entrepreneurial women.
I work with female business owners who want to get out of the planning and dreaming stage, and help them turn the vague ideas in their head into a cohesive brand and stunning custom website.
By sprinkling in a little visionary magic to expand your mindset about what’s possible for you and your business, I give women entrepreneurs like you the tools to feel confident about how you're showing up. Like a clear quartz crystal amplifies the energy of other stones, my specialty is in amplifying the energy and effort of the women I work with.
WHEN YOUR BRAND + WEBSITE IS THE LAST THING HOLDING YOU BACK FROM FEELING LIKE A REAL PROFESSIONAL, YOU NEED A DESIGNER WHO...
helps you shine as the clear choice for your ideal clients and customers
truly gets you, your mission, and your vision
takes what you can only describe in non-techy, abstract-ish terms and beautifully translates it into a stunning brand + website
showcases your products and services in a way that turns followers into happy customers
takes your framework and makes it fabulous
I'm a longtime fan of making pretty things - my kindergarten teacher had to limit my time at the arts and crafts station to thirty minutes per day. But I wasn't sure how to apply my creativity. I had stints in classical music and K-12 teaching, and my first business was in mobile yoga and self care.
I designed my own website and branding for Compose Yoga, and right from the start, I had more inquiries about my website and graphic design than my yoga. As you can imagine, this had me in a constant state of face-meet-palm, thinking " but I’m a yoga teacher - please buy my yoga things!”
BUT, I'D GET HOME AND LIGHT UP AT THE IDEA OF ADDING A NEW SECTION
to my homepage.
Updating my class graphics was fun. I'd happily write one more paragraph and line it up just so. My passion for website design grew the more I dabbled. I went to workshops and connected with other creatives, and one day, a local artist asked me for my business card.
I was about to hand her my yoga card when I realized she wanted to hire me as a web designer. That artist became my first client, and I moved quickly into my creative happy place.
knowing how happy each client is with her new online home and b) the part that I’ve played in helping her business grow. Now that I’ve cultivated the freedom of working online, I choose to travel a few times a year to new locations so I can connect in real life. My first live/work experience was recently in Calgary, Alberta, and on my list in the next few years are Seattle, Barcelona, San Francisco, Victoria, Naples, Boston, and Helsinki.
NOWADAYS, I DESIGN BRANDS AND WEBSITES FOR WOMEN IN BUSINESS FULL-TIME, AND I LIVE FOR THAT
MY FAVOURITES IRL...
I’ve never met a hipster coffee shop I didn’t like - you can count on me to pass on the latest personal growth book I’ve devoured, give you some impactful but unsolicited advice and share countless cups of coffee to go with the cookie dough macarons.
