Supporting small businesses is a passion area of mine – and hopefully yours too. These businesses are invaluable in the creation of diversity in the workplace, keeping more money in our communities, and serving as a cultural representation of our cities.
To help bring awareness to our local community makers, each month on The Doctorette, I highlight a favorite small business.
This month, I’m excited to share Christin King, the maker behind CK Creations with you as The Doctorette Small Business Spotlight.
I found Christin through her Instagram and immediately fell for her delicate designs that pack a whole lot of heart.
A Raleigh, NC native and educated at NC State, Christin just recently celebrated the two year anniversary of CK Creations.
Nostalgic – delicate – whimsy
…all words that describe CK Creations unique style through which she designs and illustrates custom curated work tailored to her customers.
She’s a firm believer that in the wake of the digital age, hand-made quality is important. Christin combines the modern digital world with her handmade pieces which gives her style a unique edge.
Sketches and watercolors are CK’s bread and butter, but she also offers various design services. CK Creations offers everything a small business would need to help develop their brand including web design, logos, and social media marketing. She’s worked with a variety of business owners including a rap artist and several local boutiques.
For all you #NCBrides out there, Christin also does full, custom wedding invitation suites that are absolutely swoon-worthy.
In addition to her commissioned pieces, Christin teaches (private and public) workshops in hand-lettering, calligraphy, and watercolor illustrations 1-2 times per month. She also hosts pop-ups throughout the local triangle area.
In fact, she has two upcoming events you’ll want to add to your calendar:
- Pop-up: when: April 28th // where: Kinshop @ Junction West in Raleigh, NC
