Kim Russo

Brand + Graphic Designer
2024 Honoree

Kim Russo stands as the visionary force behind On Brand Designs, an exclusive design studio nestled in the vibrant heart of Charleston, SC. As the Founder, CEO, and Lead Designer, she not only shapes visual experiences but also empowers her clients and team.

Kim is also the creator of ‘The Profitable Brand Designer’ course teaching creatives how to switch their mindset from freelancer to entrepreneur and create a profitable design business.

She began her career working for top packaging design agencies in NYC after getting her degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology in packaging design. In 2018 after spending her entire career in corporate, Kim decided she was ready to make a bigger impact on a smaller scale. She left the “Big Apple,” and started On Brand Designs, which launched in September 2018. Kim moved to Charleston in 2020 and has been focused on growing her business ever since.

Her areas of expertise include brand strategy, brand identity, website design, print graphics and packaging design. She loves creating scroll-stopping designs for female entrepreneurs that make you say out loud, “Ooo, I love that!”.

When she is not busy working, Kim enjoys crafting, painting pet portraits and laying on the beach or by the pool with her friends and family.
