Your mission is solid but you can't seem to communicate it effectively.
You feel messy and confused because your brand lacks cohesion.
Your content is original but your brand identity is not.
You're not even sure why you have a website since it never converts.
“Emily is such a joy to work with! She pays attention to detail, listens and implements my feedback, and always responds promptly. She understood my vision and brought it to life better than I ever could have. I especially loved the Brand Discovery stage. I’ve received so many compliments on my branding since working with her and some of my posts have received over 300 shares! I am so grateful to have been introduced to her and can’t wait to work with her on future projects.”
"I first heard about Emily from a friend who gave her raving reviews, and she did not disappoint. Emily is great to work with. She really understood my vision and brought it to life while involving me every step of the way. She was able to guide me yet incorporate my feedback/suggestions at the same time. I was able to relaunch my business with ease with the new branding which gave my business a fresh new look."
"I'd always known that I wanted to start my own blog and start growing my social media/branding myself but I had no idea how to start. I f*cking LOVED my experience with Emily. She met and exceeded my expectations and I could not be happier with all of the assets and my blog. Going into our meetings, I had no idea EXACTLY what I wanted my blog to look like or what I wanted my assets to look like and she hit it right on the nose. She has helped me brand myself in a way that I don't think was possible before and this has improved my overall outreach for my freelancing, gotten me more jobs in my career and has just given me a new found excitement to create content, write and develop!"
"I am so grateful for Emily's gifting in creativity and branding. Her passion shines through her process and the level of due diligence she applies to canvass her clients brands, identify their pain points and strengths. The entire process was was educational, I grew in my own personal brand awareness and also discovered new strengths I did not appreciate as much prior to working with Emily. Since working with Emily, I attracted my first 5 figure client and have developed a more robust and comprehensive strategy for engagement across social media platforms attracting the kinds of clients I sought out too since working with Emily. I look forward to continuing to work with Emily!"

"I’ve been working with Stella The Studio for over a year now. They allowed me to go from having no clear branding to a clear, defined and recognizable brand. I’ve attracted more sponsors and partners because of my professional personal brand now. Would recommend working with them!"
"Emily continues to AWE me with how innovative she is with unique brands. She provided me with constructive feedback about my ongoing brand development and worked with me diligently to clearly define my goal, approach and audience. I feel a lot more prepared and confident in preparing materials for my business this year. Thank you for continue to share with me your expertise. You're the best!!"

Overly complicated sites full of crazy scroll features may actually deter your dream audience. We're organization-obsessed and will never do a complex site just for the sake of it.
We don't do Complicated
Drag-and-drop websites that don't look like drag-and-drop websites are our specialty! Keep the power to update your site on your own without dealing with glitchy layouts and boring design.
The power of drag-and-drop
Asking you the real questions so you can see real results! We'll help coach you on what to add, and what to remove from your site so you can get clear and convert those leads.
your "But why?" bestie
Whether you're an advocate or a non-profit, your message must be front and centre. It can be easy to get lost in the sauce of your mission and miss connecting with your community. Let's remove that uber-specific jargon and create a website that clearly communicates all the good that you do.
Brand + Web design isn't your expertise, and it shouldn't have to be! Stick to what you do best, and we'll handle the rest, from a brand that will stand out from the growing wellness industries to a sales page that doesn't feel like a sales page.
You have big dreams, but between brand deals and curating your feed, you don't know when you'll have time to start. You know it's time to grow a brand that embodies your vision and showcases all that you have to share.

I have years of experience designing for the leading talent in hospitality, event services, design, and content creation industries. As such, I've developed an expertise when it comes to explaining service offerings. I'm also a big softie and as such love to work with heart-led brands doing good for the world. I send 1% of the profits from each project will go to a local charity.
Creating a website doesn't have to be confusing, but it does need to be strategically organized! I'll coach you through the eye of your ideal audience and confirm that everything on your site is necessary and presented in the best way possible!
