Why Intersectional + Indigenous Feminist Entrepreneurs  Working With Us

Branding + Web Design Testimonials from Feminist + Indigenous Entrepreneurs We’ve Worked With

I feel like I was valued, respected, and supported throughout the whole process in a way that was grounding and empowering. A favourite part about working with Bloom + Brilliance was how kind, genuine, and caring Leigh-Ann was. She exceed my expectations, and provided suggestions and guidance. I really enjoyed how she walked me through the process and why she developed it the way she did, and also recorded walking me through how to use my website. I’m feeling so grateful!

I hired Janelle because she had worked with several other photographers that I know and came highly recommended. After using the same logo for my first couple years I felt like I needed an upgrade, something my brand could live up to!

What comes along with creating a logo that I didn’t expect, is a lot of questions about my brand, how I want to present myself and who my target market is and after being in business for a few years I really struggled to answer these questions as I wasn’t quite sure of all of it just yet. I had no idea what I wanted my logo to look like, what colours I wanted to use, but Janelle really came through and created something unique for me that represents my brand even when I didn’t know what that was yet.

I was blown away after the first version of my logo, and with a few tweaks, it was better than I ever could have imagined and I print it on everything I possibly can! haha Bloom & Brilliance is worth every penny invested, and one day I’ll have Janelle do my website too!

“Janelle has been a cornerstone in my business journey and an asset to my growth since day one.

Not only designing me the perfect logo and website, and when I was ready, the sexier and more mature rebrand we did in 2018, but she also pushed me to explore what is most important to me. Her feminist principles, which underline the core ethos in her business, encouraged me to channel my own feminist values into my business as well.

By doing this I was able to better attract the clientele that would benefit most from working with me, and that I would enjoy working with. She helped to push me to value myself and my skill level and charge what I’m worth, which has helped my business grow and begin to flourish.

I look forward to working with Janelle as she helps to channel my strengths in the most positive direction while I begin the next part of my entrepreneurial adventure.”

“I was looking for help with creating a beautiful and professional website. I needed guidance from an ultimate professional. I loved Bloom + Brilliance’s website and brand (everything from the name to the colours). Plus, I had previously seen a video of Janelle by Teri Hofford that I thought was so genuine and awesome! Her response was prompt and our phone call was also helpful. Her values also aligned with my values, which was a bonus!

My favourite part about working with Janelle is her creativity and caring personality! I absolutely loved what Janelle did with my logo! It’s so perfect. She was spot on with the colour palette and theme I wanted for my website. And her emails were always very kind and helpful! She always answered any urgent questions right away. I had a lot of questions and she never made me feel bad for asking them. That was so appreciated!

I look up to Janelle as a female entrepreneur who creates opportunities for others. She is clearly talented and fantastic at what she does! Her brand and what she stands for are unique. I don’t know another website designer who is so forward and clear about who they are, and what they are here to do. Bloom + Brilliance stands out in the crowd. And I’m proud to say Janelle is my designer and friend!”

“I was looking for positive client service and a cohesive design that made sense to me. Got both! I knew Janelle was the right woman for the job not just because of her talent, but because of her big personality. I appreciate an entrepreneur who’s real and no BS.

Janelle exceed my expectations by designing a unique brand that captures the organic, natural essence of my business. Somehow she knew just what I was looking for, through intuition and skill. Everybody LOVES my branding. The soft sage green and grey really resonates with people and told me that’s how I stand out in my industry.

Janelle keeps it real and provide authentic client service. She cares about her clients and will go above and beyond to help them. She’s passionate about helping female entrepreneurs.”

“Janelle is amazing! She takes your vision and brings it to life, but also makes sure your website is functional, stylish and on-brand.

I was looking for an experienced web designer that would be able to guide and support the vision we had for our new website. Janelle’s style is just what we needed, and I knew right away she would be the woman for the job. She had a quick turnaround and great communication, and she exceeded my expectations.

My website has really supported us during COVID and has allowed us to continue with business even though we shut down for almost 3 months.”

“We were hoping that Bloom + Brilliance could capture our essence in the web design and create an upscale. Janelle was amazing!! She knew after briefly speaking with me what we wanted. Right away her work was exactly what I had envisioned! She was also great at researching and providing options which were exactly what our vision was. She is so talented and definitely exceeded our expectations.

Bloom + Brilliance makes every website look unique. There is not any “canned” look about it. You can see from the work that Janelle and her team are passionate about what they do.

We continue to get compliments on our website all the time.”

Branding + Web Design Testimonials from Feminist Entrepreneurs We've Worked With

“I love working with Janelle. It was really the best decision for my business and for me, as a new entrepreneur. I bought out an existing business and before I rebranded, I was so embarrassed to hand out business cards or send people to the website. I needed someone who had the expertise to develop a brand that actually reflected the services I provide and who I am as a person. Janelle is that someone!

Janelle has a passion, so she really engages and works with her clients one-on-one. Everything was direct and easy, and she went above and beyond. She not only created my logo, but helped me come up with a name for my business, set up my social media, and all the technological stuff that I didn’t know much about. People are finding me online, and my brand has even been connecting with new and younger markets.

Investing in my business this way made sense. I wanted something timeless that would set me up for success from the start. And now I have a brand and website that I’m proud of.”

Feminist Entrepreneur Carisa Montooth
“When I first saw the website that Janelle created for me, I literally screamed with joy! I was so excited because it was so beautiful, so sophisticated, so lush, so gorgeous, so unique—I mean, this website is just the sexiest thing. It really up-levelled my entire online presence. My clients say to me “I found you through YouTube, but when I went to your website, that’s when I really knew you were legit.”

And it was more than just a website. It was an entire visual brand. The coaching site, the membership site, the colour palette, the fonts—there’s even a style bible so that everything is consistent.

My income doubled in the first 12 months that I had my new website. I went from making $30,000 to $60,000 a year. It’s wonderful to have a brand that actually matches the quality of the work that I do and the results that my clients get.

I get to show up now in the world in a bigger way—and I couldn’t be happier.”

Feminist Entrepreneur Kelly Jones
“When I first found Janelle online, I had a really good intuitive feeling. But I’m a researcher, so I researched a bunch of companies, and sent them questions. I was the most happy with the answers Janelle gave. I felt like she really understood the nuances of what I wanted.

I was looking for something really authentic. Someone who was committed and interested enough to actually get to know me as a person. To help me weave my story, and what was most important to me about my business, into the very fabric of what she was creating.

Since hiring Janelle, I feel so much more clear on what it is that I have to offer, and also what I’m not offering. She has provided guidance every step of the way and really helped me with the entire process.

She is an amazing person, she is extremely talented, her depth of knowledge is evident, but my favourite part of working with Janelle is being with Janelle! When I met her in person, it just felt right. I love being with her.”

Kelly Jones, Kelly Jones Wellness

“This new website was a big dream of ours & we are so thankful that you and Well Curated brought it to life!

What a joy it was to work with you. We love working with strong, creative, empowering women and the cherry on top… you blew our rebrand out of the water!!! We love everything you did for us!

Still to this day we get big smiles when we go on our website. You ladies worked so hard and tirelessly to make this rebrand and website be what it is today. So utterly thankful and blown away! “

“I loved getting to work with Janelle! She’s creative, has wonderful ideas, and is SO skilled with the tech and building end of sites too (which is just magic to me – how all that coding works). She’s honest and clear through the process on how things will work, look, and if my ideas are doable. And if they’re not, she came up with great alternatives that (in most cases) were better then the ideas I had in the first place! 5 stars for sure!”

Amanda Douglas, Amanda Douglas Events

“As soon as I discussed the feeling that I wanted to achieve for my site, Janelle got exactly what I was trying to achieve… and more! Her excitement was contagious and made the job fun, even though I know nothing about computers or design.

Janelle is so easy to work with and amazing at what she does. It was a very light, fun and stress-free process with results that are so amazing I couldn’t even dream them.

She and I have been very close friends for a very long time which made me nervous. They say don’t mix business with pleasure for a reason. But now that we’ve worked together, I would never have it any other way. I love how my site turned out, and that’s all because of Janelle. She has the ability of recognizing someone’s dream and helping them achieve it. Thank you, Janelle, for not only recognizing my dream, but for pushing me and helping me make it happen. It’s going to be a long road and I’m happy you’re with me for the ride.”

Feminist Entrepreneur Adeline Bird
“I loved that Janelle was able to capture the ideas I had imagined and make it even better than I had imagined!

I recommend Janelle because she’s woke, she slays, and she takes the time to get to know what her clients want and are looking for.

Janelle, I’ve said it before and I will say it again, thank you for making my website so darn sexy!”

Adeline Bird, Soul Unexpected

“I needed an entire website system for my Subscription gift box business, and specifically a “Build Your Own Box” platform. I loved Janelle’s esthetic and knew she would relaunch my website and brand out into the world in a beautiful and professional way!
Her brand values were an important factor in my decision to work with Janelle. In an industry that I found to be dominated by men, I was ecstatic to work with an amazing female designer. She was extremely approachable and confident in her work.
My website has allowed me to expand to a larger clientele and given me different selling capabilities. The beautiful design and functionality were everything I asked for and more! The many (many!) extra miles that Janelle/Bloom + Brilliance went in order to deliver a website and branding esthetic were far beyond anything I’ve experienced working with other companies!”

Colleen Olafson Winnipeg Women Feminist Entrepreneurs Web Design Branding

“Working with Janelle at Bloom + Brilliance was such a positive experience for me. From the initial worksheet she sent me, to the first draft of my site, trying different fonts and colours, minor tweaking along the way. Janelle was a great listener to my ideas and communicator for her ideas. As a Marriage Commissioner, a Funeral Celebrant and Baby Naming Celebrant, I’ve been told that my services were booked because I had a professional website and it was easy to navigate.

Janelle continues to make changes that come up and she has become a very good friend. Love our lunches.”

“I was looking for an eye-catching, artistic, bright and beautiful website that I could use for my food blog. I contacted Janelle because I was most impressed with the design of her website when I was shopping around online for a web designer. Janelle really listened to me and was able to share my vision for where I wanted the site to go. The end result exceeded my expectations. I had compliments from nearly everyone I knew, and perfect strangers who visited the site from around the world. Janelle has an eye for beauty and creative expression that most of us could only dream of. I highly recommend her services for your website needs!”

Allison Leigh, Purely Ally

“We were looking for someone to create an awesome website for our company and make the experience as easy as possible. We definitely found that with Bloom + Brilliance.
The company name says it all. They take a lot of little pieces of information and bloom them into something completely brilliant. The level of professionalism and class is second to none! We love our website!!!”

Brian Anderson, The Cabinet Company

“The thing I enjoyed most about working with Janelle was the ease. I find it difficult to express the creative waves in my brain into something that another person could actually understand and she just got it. Also her patience, I think my ideas were all over the place and she guided me into realizing what it was I actually wanted. It’s scary to tell someone about your wildest hopes and dreams and Janelle made me feel like I wasn’t crazy and I felt very supported and encouraged.

Working with Janelle is like finding a mad scientist who is ready to get down and dirty with your creative brain waves. She is not intimidating and very easy to brainstorm with. She transformed my mess of non design like jargon into a beautiful seamless piece of art. As a brand new company, you really have to trust a designer with your vision and Janelle she really just lets you be you. I can see how my goals and ideas were really transformed by her amazing skill to understand her clients.

The amount of people that have told me, “I googled sugaring and went to every place’s website and Nude’s was the only one that was professional, beautiful and comforting”, shows how much the website paid off and was beneficial to my overall business. I could say a million wonderful things about her work ethic and eagerness to bring your vision to life, but truly her work speaks for itself.”

Lindsey Peterson, Nude Sugar Bar
Melanie Reimer

“Choosing a web designer was the hardest, most researched aspect of my business I’ve had. Being a photographer I have no storefront, my website and brand is just that so it needs to be everything.

I remember going through the process and trying my best to describe something I wanted that I didn’t even know how to describe. Janelle took what terrible descriptions I gave her and she made it what it is. To say I’ve had dozens of people compliment my site would be an understatement, many of my clients have said they chose me because of the ease of navigation and the professional looking site.

My website was the best investment for my business, hands down.”

“I was recommended Janelle’s services from a friend, and I am very pleased with my decision to have her develop my SMAK DAB website. With my business just starting up, it was crucial for her to develop my brand and how I wanted my company to be portrayed. She did just that beautifully! Not only was she prompt to answer emails with inquiries, but she was patient with my different ideas and changes to the website.

I am thrilled to have her as my “web girl”!”

Carly Minish, Smak Dab Foods
“Janelle made me feel so comfortable with the entire process, from beginning to end. She took the time to understand exactly how I felt about my business and brought that through to the branding 100%. She was timely and accurate and really listened to my ideas and concerns about all aspects of my project. Not only that, but she is positive and easy to work with and made me all the more excited with my business ideas and prospects.

She took my small hopes of a website and created something I am so proud to show my clients. I wish I could start more businesses just to have her design more sites for me!”

Nikyla Hladio, Nikyla Design
“At least once a month I say to my husband; “I’m so glad I found Janelle.” She is professional, timely and produces a great product. She was willing to take my suggestions and revamp my website into something I absolutely love. Although my questions must drive her nuts sometimes, she never lets on and I thank her for that. It makes it safe for me to keep asking and learning.

I would recommend Janelle to because she has time and time again given me something that I connect with and love. Whether it’s with the website, the graphics or any help I need, she constantly delivers.”

Joleen Dilk-Salyn, Baby Sleep 101
“My experience working with Janelle was great from start to finish. Janelle took the time to truly get a sense of the design aestheic I was hoping to convey through my website.  She also anticipated my future business needs and provided valuable guidance in that regard. She is very enjoyable to work with and is always willing to answer my questions, which is much appreciated! Janelle is extremely talented at what she does and totally captured my vision for my website. I have already received a lot of compliments regarding the design.

I will definitely look to Janelle for future design requirements and branding needs. I recommend Janelle to others with complete confidence.”
