I’m Janelle

Web Designer + Brand Stylist

Ever since I set up my very first lemonade stand, I have been passionate about entrepreneurship. I took over our driveway with a table built out of sawhorses and a sheet of plywood, taped up a hand drawn sign… and I fell completely and utterly in love.

With my best friend and little brother as my sidekicks, I came up with idea after idea: setting up a store in a treehouse, selling handmade goodies door-to-door to our very good-natured neighbours, creating our own board game, etc, etc.

Even as a child, I loved the creativity, the freedom and the energy that came with starting and running my own business. I loved dreaming up my next big thing, putting it all together and watching that dream come to life.

Now, as a designer, I love helping my clients build their own dreams. I love working to create a vision, work out a plan and launch their business. And I love that I get to share in that energy and excitement over and over again.

I’m based in Winnipeg, Manitoba (the heart of the Canadian prairies!) and I work with entrepreneurs at all stages from all over the world. I work with amazing clients from as far as Vancouver, Toronto, San Francisco, New York, Hong Kong, Melbourne—and as close to home as Brandon, Steinbach and even my own neighbourhood. They’re work-at-home-moms, women working to turn their side hustle into a career, and those looking to bring their established business to the next level.

If you have a dream for your life’s work, I want to help you build it.

What’s in a name?

Two of my favourite words

Bloom (n.)

A time of beauty, freshness and vigor; an opening to higher perfection.

Brilliance (n.)

The quality of great radiance, exceptional wit, talent & intelligence.

My Journey

From Side Business to Full-time Studio

I sat down with fellow Winnipeg entrepreneur Teri Hofford for her Tub Talks to discuss the journey of working for yourself. We chatted about my own journey as a designer—from building websites on the side to running a full-time studio!—and some of the struggles and successes that await entrepreneurs. Bonus: we discuss how cultivating an authentic and unique personal brand gives you an edge in business.
