Hey there!

I'm Chanel Alaire

GET TO KNOW ME

And I’m on a mission to help passionate solopreneurs bring their dream businesses to life through an authentic and down-to-earth branding experience. 

I’ve always considered myself a creative, without really knowing what that means. Growing up, I was always the kid at art camp instead of joining a sports team. 

But it wasn’t until later in life after experiencing extreme burn-out working in hospitality that I started to get this nagging feeling that I was on the wrong path, that working for someone else just wasn't what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. And after some soul searching and a heavy desire to be creative, Vanilla & Oak Design Studio was born. 

Currently I’m based in the mountains of beautiful Whistler BC, and when I’m not working on bringing dream brands to life, you can find me enjoying the little things like a good take out, scenic drives, and snuggles with my cat

VANILLA & OAK'S CORE VALUES

Authenticity

Collaboration

Passion

Freedom

By showing up as your authentic self, we can build a brand that purposefully aligns with your tribe. Be you for you, and for everyone looking up to you

The magic happens when you bring your expertise together with mine, and we work together on making your vision become a reality

People can feel passion through the screen. When you’re passionate about what you do, you will have a long lasting impact on your tribe

I strongly believe that we have the ability to create the freedom in our lives and in our businesses that we deserve

My favourite part was knowing that I could always depend on Chanel. That she would listen, and understand, and she would use her expertise and skills to translate my ideas into vision. 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.
