meet THE FOUNDER

Hello, I'm Carrie.

I'm a storyteller, brand strategist,
founder, and enthusiastic dog petter.

I'm kind of obsessed with telling your story exceedingly well. It's what keeps me up at night—that and bingeing Love Island.

I have a heart for beauty—and for the people who create it.

It's the ingenious, often fiery side of creators that gets me. The drive and passion and raw grit. I love you for it. The way you roll your eyes up to flip through the portfolio in your mind. How you run around with your hair on fire, a million ideas bursting on top of one another like grand finale fireworks. I love the perfectionism in paring down a thought, a room, a vignette into this one, perfect thing. You are my people.

And I think I might be yours.

You need someone who gets you and can sort through the scribbled-on sticky notes in your brain. Someone who can pull meaning out of your brand. And put good words to it. (Not to mention brilliant, unforgettable design.) You need an expert in digital marketing strategies, social media dynamics, and stunning, SEO-driven websites. 

Happy news. You're in the right place.

Simplicity is

sophisticated.

WE BELIEVE

Branding is about how

you make people feel

WE BELIEVE

Amaretto is the

nectar of the gods.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Jesus / Family

Long Weekends

Dogs + Friends /

Work Hard, Live Well 

Chips + Salsa

Balance is a guiding principle in design, and it's how we approach life at Hello Story.

Our offices close at noon on Fridays to ensure we have lots of downtime recharging and making memories with those we love most.

Cheers (Ivy with a matcha latte; Carrie with a spicy marg) to a balanced life!

Hi everyone! I’m Ivy, the Creative Director and assistant to Hello Story Founder, Carrie Stockdale.

I am a Certified Personal Trainer and specialize in fat loss, gut health, and a holistic approach to movement for your body type and goals at ivygfit.com

​My passion for social media management ignited when I started my own small business. I quickly discovered the power of social media and the importance of digital marketing for business growth. I strongly believe social media will remain a valuable marketing tool for your customers and potential clients because it generates brand awareness, increases site traffic, promotes your services and expertise, creates brand credibility and allows millions of users on social platforms to discover YOUR brand, YOUR why, and YOUR story. My mission is to elevate, transform, and grow one-of-a-kind businesses that bring your vision to life across digital platforms!

I am thrilled to be here and excited to bring your brand to life!
