What started as a hobby blossomed into a business prided on spreading a “splash of creativity” to everyone. Kimberly Brown began Brown Sugar Designs primarily to make thoughtful, creative gifts for her friends and family. However, soon the Chicago native heard the call of entrepreneurship
“I really started my business as a way to relax and a way to come up with creative gifts for my family and friends. As I started gifting the items, I got requests for orders and I decided to turn it into a full-blown business.”
Brown Sugar Designs offers a variety of products, ranging from customised bags, glasses, and callout signs. This year the brand expanded to include body products, such as body butter, whipped soap, body scrubs, and bath bombs.
The mission of Brown Sugar Designs is to provide original gifts and products with love and a splash of creativity. Kimberly plans to bring her brand to pop up shops, while simultaneously introducing a new handmade soap line. She shares this piece of wisdom as a growing businesswoman:
“Always look for ways to grow your business and to introduce new products or ideas. Don’t be afraid to take a risk on something new, it may not pan out, but you will learn from it.”
Kimberly hopes to refine her existing products at Brown Sugar Designs, as well as setting her sights high for the growth of her company. We’re excited to see where she’ll go next, as those splashes of creativity keep on multiplying! Want to learn more about Brown Sugar Designs? Stay updated below!
