I have always loved design and style ever since I can remember. It wasn't until high school when struck with health issues where I found my passion for designing things. As I was extremely limited I found a creative outlet and started sketching and making collages from magazines.
After some tough years, I received my degree in Fashion Merchandising and loved every second of it. During fashion school I started a lifestyle blog and started to get recognized by my peers and teachers for my skills and started helping them with their own blogs and social media. This is where I found my love for graphic design. Students were coming to me for help with Adobe programs and techniques. I started Cali Jae Designs in November of 2014 when I felt called to start my then branding and design business. From 2014 until early 2016 I worked with some of the most amazing women across the world and have created lasting relationships which I value greatly. I loved helping female entrepreneurs build and grow their brand, I loved sharing inspiration and empowerment.
It wasn't until a bad car accident where I had to stop everything to focus on my health. Let's just say 2016 was a rough year, I'll spare the details. Through my health struggle I found comfort in planning and goal setting to help my anxiety and to get myself back on track. Little did I know it would spark such a beautiful flame.
I was immersed in the planner community and made some incredible life long friends. Through planning I had that creative spark again like I did back in high school with fashion. I started using my graphic design skills to create inserts, graphics, and stickers and completely fell in love. I was able to combine my love tor style and design and knew it was a new chapter for my business. I am so honored and proud to be able to offer products I love and to be able to help fellow creatives to plan in style and achieve their goals! Thank you for joining this journey with me, it truly means the world to me! I would love to hear from you and how I can further help you!
