Welcome to KRISTIE CHRISTENSEN DESIGN HOUSE, the Branding Powerhouse and collaborative spirit behind She is Whiskey in a Teacup. Yes, we are so much more than just a women's boutique. We're a full service, over-the-top, devil-may-care design firm from top to bottom. We run this brand, and build bodacious brands for our Sisters in business at the same time. Our customers are those who aspire to tell their own authentic stories through strategy, design, promotion & collaboration. Kristie’s brand is the culmination of more than 20 years absorbing life and using that experience to turn ideas into inspired brands, creative designs & memorable, purpose-driven events.
We’re no run-of-the-mill branding house. Yes, we design stellar logos, we build social and SEO-driven web sites and tell your story like none other, but we’re so much more than that. We’re not really the agency you call to simply design a logo. We’re branding trailblazers and authentic storytellers. We don’t really believe that a logo design is where you should stop. We believe in tossing all the tools into the fire to fuel your brand and tell your story in a way that will create the perfect storm of promotion that converts to revenue. Forget thinking outside the proverbial box. We crush the box and toss it into the burn pile – which just so happens to be our firepit-in-the-round where we sit and brainstorm with champagne, I-pads and S’mores.
We have all the strategic experience to get you started along with our creative arsenal of tools to make it happen, and you hire us to unleash that marketing prowess to create your unbridled brand. Our approach is a bit different, too. We believe in building lifestyle brands that customers want to live and breathe in. We not only create and design your brand, we become your brand ambassadors. We literally carry your brand flag through the streets waving with creative promotion and public relations. We don’t work with brands that we don’t truly believe in, either. Bottom line…we have to love you to convince your brand customers to love you, too. Again…authenticity. It’s what we do. It’s our Mantra.
Owner Kristie Christensen is the common denominator. The Company Namesake. The Brand Trailblazer. The creative glue, we all say. And this agency is the culmination of her more than 20 years absorbing life and using that experience to turn ideas into authentic brands, custom apparel + giftable design, promotional items and weddings + events. Her career began in hotels, planning weddings and running sales & marketing while nabbing her marketing degree. So she knows a thing or twelve about creating and taking brands to market. And some 20+ years later, all of that would become the center of the ring with her as the Ringmaster of this Wild West, Down South Creative Circus.
Kristie is a fearless, chronic entrepreneur who lives life to its fullest, and she considers every moment spent a form of inspiration for everything she does. A true brandaholic, some might say that her love for creating brands could use its own 12 step…but she gives them a wink, runs with arms wide open to that creative bottle (hopefully Pink Champagne)…and she drinks.
And Kristie is legit. She spent a full career building luxury brands in the travel, hospitality and events space, and those industries are where creativity lives. She brands. That what she does. She brands for our customers and for our own powerhouse brands, and our customers half hire her for her experience and half hire her for her unbridled passion for telling their stories. She has always handled all the brands with complete creative reckless abandon…and she does it well. Her killer combo lies in her ability to wrap creative design in a warm blanket of good strategy & authentic messaging.
She likes to say that she is right brained with left brain tendencies. So, she’s great at helping you get started with all the nuts and bolts flotsam (like getting the right certificates, selecting names that work for web and social, crafting a business/marketing plan, etc.) and then tossing a little gold glitter on your vision with design. And, if you aren’t sure where to start or what to call your new venture, she and her growing team can help with that, too!
So, if creativity and authenticity are your vibe, let her help you build your brand.
