Design Rooted in Marketing


With an unwavering passion, through opened doors and overcome hurdles, our true calling was found.

In 2006, we were given the opportunity to architect a marketing department from the ground up. It was with this opportunity that we knew we had found our calling.  Everything we had grown to love; art, economics, marketing and advertising, came together and helped create businesses that thrived. Throughout the years, we’ve fine-tuned our artistic talents, continuously built upon our skill sets, and have gained invaluable partnerships to create TenLeaf Studios. Today, we are a fast-paced creative agency focused on marketing, strategy and design for non-profits, agencies, and small to medium sized businesses…and we still love every minute of it.

Our name comes from a mix between our founder’s quick-witted response for the spelling of her name, “I’m a ‘ten’ not a ‘tin’,” and the inspiration from her late Grandmother’s teachings and love of leaves (Thanks, Grandma!). The twist is that a “leaf” is also known as a single piece of paper.  Like any marketing endeavor or word of mouth referral, all you need is one to create awareness that catches on like wildfire.


Strategists, Designers + Creatives

“I’ve had a passion for creativity ever since I was young; anything I could do to boost the ordinary — I was smitten. After graduating college, I focused on the development of consulting and design for other entrepreneurs. My passion had blossomed into creating branding and marketing concepts that helped others succeed, and I had fallen in love with watching other companies thrive with the designs I helped create. Being an artist at heart with a background in business, I’ve grown extremely fond of helping others, inspiring them, and watching their companies flourish.”

Kristen’s educational background and work experience include: Advertising, Graphic Design, Marketing Consulting and Social Media Analysis, with an emphasis on Business Strategies. In 2006 she graduated from the University of Akron in Akron, Ohio with a bachelors degree in Advertising, and a minor in International Business.
