It was a lot of staring at code day in and day out. Eventually, I drifted into creating a hub where I could marry my love for the arts and my technical degree while offering what I could to friends and family. Eventually, I came to a place where people started paying for it… almost by complete accident.
A happy accident. An accident that proved that success doesn’t have to be in a specific box. I was able to rip open that cardboard and jump out of it to find a definition of success that works for me.
Which is exactly what I want for you, too.
If I’m being honest, Branded by Bernel (the design company) sort of happened by mistake. Let's be clear, not in the "overnight success" kind of way, but more like I knew I wanted to make a difference in tech but didn't know how. Let's be real, some of the best things in life are happy mistakes:
Penicillin, microwave ovens, chocolate chip cookies… you can go ahead and put Branded by Bernel on that list, too.
See, growing up I was always interested in art. I was tossed into every creative summer program imaginable and fully enjoyed it. But of course, like most of us, I was taught that success had to fit in a specific box. I had to go to college, get a degree, and dive into the corporate world in order to pay the bills.
There is always a spot for creatives on my couch. I will always welcome in the excellence that is brilliant and visual entrepreneurs. Your thoughts, your desires, your genius and passion… this is what seasons our world, and we need more of it.

And I also know that you have been taught the same thing: success should look a certain way, and you’ll only get there by coloring inside the lines. I learned from experience that coloring inside the lines only pigeonholed me. It kept me from expressing my creativity, which kept me from expressing my true, authentic self.
What I want for you is a place that pushes you to do that. I want you to feel confident in who you are, and I want your website to be the home that expresses that, fully. We need more people in this world to lean into their passions and show them off. Because that’s how you reach success. Not the success that you’ve been taught, but the success that actually matters.
It would be advantageous for you to improve your behavior.
This southern belle is truly grateful.
