My name is Charlotte Guice. I am a passionate, fearless DESIGNER and ENTREPRENEUR with an MBA in Marketing.
I excel at combining the creative and business... thriving by keeping my hands and mind busy designing, building, and creating.
GRAPHIC DESIGN – I have extensive experience across a wide range of work including branding, marketing, web, and infographics.
OTHER DESIGN WORK – In addition, I practice a variety of design beyond graphics: photography, welding, woodworking, renovating, and textiles... to name a few.
I earned my formal education in design at the College of Design at NC State University. While at NC State, I focused on graphic & product design, obtaining a Bachelor of Art and Design degree ('09). Throughout college and since, I have been a freelance designer for various companies, primarily doing graphic design. Furthering my business and entrepreneurial acumen, I obtained an MBA from UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School ('17).
In addition to freelance work for a book of clients, much of my design work, marketing, and business strategy was with my first brand: Olly Oxen, a collegiate apparel & accessories company. I founded the company, as a 22-year old, during my last semester of undergrad in 2009. What started out as a solo venture became a successful family business as my two older brothers joined over the years. It was a great adventure that, after 9.5 years, the business partners closed on December 31, 2018 in order to make room for new chapters and career changes.
