Hi! I’m Maranda and I’m an eccentric, artsy nerd.
I was born and raised in Michigan, married in Las Vegas, and relocated to South Carolina in 2015. Selling on Etsy has been my full-time j̶o̶b̶ passion since 2011. I absolutely love what I do.
Like most Etsy sellers, I didn’t go to business school and I don’t hold a degree in marketing. Truth be told, I’ve never even studied graphic design. My work is completely self-taught and fine-tuned through experience, and I still have a lot to learn. But one of my favorite parts about being a small business owner is constantly growing and evolving.
I believe the fundamental key to success on Etsy is building a unique brand and presenting it as professionally as possible. I love helping fellow Etsians and small online business owners pull together the perfect image for the face of their enterprise. That, in itself, is where Cyan Sky Design started.
My appreciation for design is fueled by a decade of experience in related fields. Years working at a commercial printing company taught me the foundation of business composition and the technical knowledge of print processes. Going on to open a photography studio in my hometown drew me further into the digital side of life. In 2011, I found myself working at the graphic design end of the spectrum on a full-time basis… no looking back!
