We are also passionate about creative expression, empowering women, and celebrating diversity. These core values along with a commitment to exceptional design & quality, consideration for the sustainability of our planet and prioritizing acts of service are consistent across all Stay Lifted brands and projects. 

DESIGN THAT INSPIRES. MESSAGING THAT DELIVERS.

Stay Lifted is a design firm and venture studio based in Culver City, California primarily servicing small to mid-size businesses, non-profits, start-ups + do-gooders. We specialize in taking a company's ideas, vision and story and shaping them into a visual presence that is not only aesthetically on point but also specifically designed to meet desired outcomes.

CURRENT PROJECTS

Stay Lifted began way before it's official launch in 2011. When our Founder (then stay-at-home mom) was planning her son's baby shower and had exhausted every local store without finding any baby invitations that reflected her style and voice, she designed and created her own which led to designing and creating more things for more people. From there, Stay Lifted evolved and became a notable designer and supplier of stationery products through our retail, licensing and private label partners such as Papyrus, Fine Stationery and other premium brands. 

We make + sell stuff. With roots in business development and ecommerce, our design and branding expertise includes product development, distribution and retail. 

VENTURE

Our roots in illustration, graphic design, and paper & packaging are the inspiration (and experience) fueling our current ventures, Beyoutifully Black (above) and Fashion Meets Paper (below). Contact us for information on wholesale, business and collaboration opportunities.
