Janessa Rae Design Creative is a boutique design studio based in Rockford, Michigan. I partner with passionate and driven entrepreneurs like you to create bespoke designs and brand strategies that add value to your business, enrich your customer experiences, and help  grow your business.


I have a B.F.A. in Graphic Design & Digital Media from Kendall College of Art & Design in Grand Rapids, MI. Previous to owning my own business, I have experience working at a few design agencies in Grand Rapids, in roles such as Senior Web Designer and Creative Lead.


I have a former career as an Interior Designer, with my first Bachelors Degree in Interior Design, and a minor in Architecture. I believe my unique design background allows me to take a holistic approach to your project, looking at details that others may not see, and coming up with solutions that are extremely tailored to your brand.





You're in the right place if you want to create a strategic brand that truly resonates with your business and audience, develop a brand strategy for your business that helps to create measurable results based on needs and goals, launch a streamlined new website, and create a home to launch your digital programs and products so they can serve more people, make you more money, and get your message out to the world.


You have a purpose-filled mission and a story to tell. Allow me to help you amplify your voice, nourish your message, and elevate your brand.


I love working with people who value similar things as myself. I value communication, trust, honesty, integrity, respect, and flexibility to pivot if new goals emerge. I am a big-picture thinker, approachable, collaborative, curious, insightful, honest, and aware. I work diligently to meet your project objectives and form lasting relationships.

Meet Pepper Pupps! She's my adorable french bulldog, named after Pepper Potts from Iron Man. She oversees creative direction on all projects and puts the final paw stamp of approval on everything that leaves the studio. She is lazy but makes up for her lack of motivation by her mid-day snuggle sessions.
