Hi!! I'm Illiah, Graphic Designer + Branding Expert

Daring business owners like you (and me) need brands that open doors

Not that long ago, a once in a lifetime client whose clarity, focus and vision for her fledgling business showed me how my graphic design talent creates a lasting difference. Witnessing the effects of a visual brand designed with purpose and vision transformed my mindset from hobby to serious business. I learned that branding isn’t just about a logo, but about inspiring trust to share our stories vulnerably and listening to the feelings and emotion behind them. Now I help creative business owners answer questions like, How do you want to be seen? Who do you help that lights you up? What are the core values you live by? Answers to questions like these build a foundation for your business and transform your voice into a visual brand with soul and personality. Your brand will share your story, your talent and your skill with confidence and pride. You’ll start experiencing the impact that your voice has on the people you love to help.

  • Oh Yes Communications

    After months of keeping an eye out for a designer that could potentially match my vision for a rebrand - I knew Illiah from C&V was the one! Her ability to incorporate a lot of color was what drew me to her initially. Once we started working together - I felt confident that together we would create the perfect new Oh Yes. Illiah is an incredibly talented artist and designer, she is quick to listen and encourage, but also not afraid to step in when design is compromised. It was a total collaboration from beginning to end and we both walked away with a total sense of pride in the final product. Best of all - I found a genuine friendship in the process! She continues to be a cheerleader for Oh Yes and I cannot wait to continue finding ways for our worlds to collide.

    I can't seem to find the words to explain how amazing my experience with Illiah has been. I came to C&V in hopes of an overall brand refresh. She was patient, through and detailed. She spent time getting to know my business, our values and learning more about my tastes. We collaborated in her unique process and the outcome was more than I could hope for! She has a unique ability to help bridge the ideas in your head to tangible, beautiful design. I was floored when she presented me with imagery, fonts, and visuals that came directly out of my brain; even when I know I wasn't able to explain fully. Illiah is a kind soul, she cares deeply for the companies that she works with and above everything the girls got some serious talent! You will not regret working with her, I can't recommend C&V enough!!!

    I have passion for everything done well and with care. For that reason I entrust my precious life moments with only C&V. I know that Illiah will take my objective as her own and bring my vision life in a way that no one else is capable of. And the journey, the process is transformational emotionally.



    Illiah is like a beautiful brand whisperer. She has this way of taking your heart and translating into an intimate brand. She is highly creative with an intuitive and professional eye for design. She is the best investment you can make in the look of your business.




We are honored to work with wonderful people, and proud to share their stories, special events, and the designs created for them. We look forward to featuring your project here soon, (hint hint, nudge nudge).
