How did you get your start in the marketing industry?

We're not a marketing company, but I do all of my own marketing! I have a degree in communication design, and have always been interested in analytics. Archer and Olive has been a dream of mine since college! I always wanted to make my own planners. Planners are tool that have always inspired me and made things seem possible. After a career in graphic design, I began deigning wedding invitations. When looking for a notebook to paint wedding invitation ideas in, I found there was nothing in the market that fit my needs, so I finally decided to create my own notebooks.
