Hey, I'm Chanel

Founder, designer, and mountain-living cat-mom behind Vanilla & Oak Design Studio

I’m here to help you design a brand that makes you feel like a confident business owner (instead of a DIYing solopreneur).

Because helping passion-driven business owners take action on their dreams is what I’m all about.

Making you AND your dream clients feel seen, heard, and stoked to work with you? That’s the “creme de la creme”. 

And it starts with turning your vision for authentic visuals into a reality.

Don’t worry if branding your business feels a little overwhelming, you now have your very own designer in your corner. I’ve got your back from here on out.

Let me know if this sounds about right…

— You’re embarrassed to share your outdated branding and website (or lack thereof)

— You don’t feel connected to any of your visuals (that pre-made Etsy logo is no longer cutting it)

— You’re straight-up done wasting your precious time and energy trying to DIY your way to creating your dream brand

— You really want a brand that feels like you AND attracts your audience, but you have no clue where to start 

Sounding a little too relatable? 


YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE.

 “Absolutely worth the investment to see your brand come to life”

Chanel did an incredible job of directing the process and understanding what I was trying to communicate. It was so exciting getting to see things come to life and Chanel does a fantastic job of understanding what you want and need.

Lynsey,  THE COOPER COLLECTIONS

"I feel proud and confident about my new beautiful brand and website!"

Chanel will make sure you get what you dream of. She is a great communicator, listener, and is very efficient with what she does. I felt she was perfectly in sync with my mental images and ideas. You will not regret the value in which you will gain from working with her.

ALEX, NATURALLY NOURISHED NUTRITION

"Chanel used her expertise and skills to translate my ideas into a vision"

My favourite part was knowing that I could always depend on Chanel. That she would listen, and understand. It's not that frequent to come across people who are totally dependable and punctual as well as sensitive and understanding, but I think this is exactly who she is.

CRISTINA, ZODIAC POETRY ASTROLOGY

"My clients now get a better sense of my style and expression."

Chanel's process was seamless and I loved our final work together. And the designs met my exact expectations! I was able to show her what I liked and she took it from there. I enjoyed the short video's Chanel sent explaining her work. I thought there was a lot of good communication throughout the process.

JENNY MILLER

"My business is now a lot more cohesive and professional"

I couldn't be happier with the final result. Working with Chanel has been a great experience. Extremely professional and open to constructive criticism. Everything is managed efficiently on a schedule which made me very confident in her work and the final result. I'm very appreciative of the fact that I was able to voice my opinion. Working with Chanel is worth every penny and the quality of her work speaks for itself!
