The Story: Before starting Iris Designs, Carla built a career in marketing and project management. Though she originally started her marketing career working in a rehabilitation clinic, she had cultivated a career in project management and supporting nonprofits in growth campaigns. During the pandemic, Carla worked for an agency dedicated to serving event hosts, facilitators, and owners with event staffing, temporary staffing, and security. Her main priorities were the management of all marketing materials, data, website design and management, and customer success for clients that may have participated in events like SXSW and other events hosted at venues like the Frank Irwin Center, University of Texas Austin, etc. 


When the pandemic shut the world down, her position, much like many others, was cut. Being forced to be at home, in front of tech all day long, and having friends in business, she noticed there was a need. There were people in her community who were trying to make lemonade out of lemons. They were starting eCommerce businesses and nonprofits, and they all needed a web designer and a marketer they could trust. A human they could connect with.

Fast forward and now almost 4 years later, Iris Designs, LLC is alive and poppin' and supporting women in business throughout the United States  - helping their brands rank in competitive environments through digital marketing, web design, content creation, branding and SEO. #UBUNTU

Iris Designs was founded in Austin, Texas

Since founding this business in May of 2020 (the pandemic year), Carla has supported well over 200+ small businesses throughout the United States. But let's dive into a little about her...


Carla is a creative geek with a passion for supporting people and businesses looking to grow, but most importantly, she is devoted to supporting professionals within the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ and ally communities because their stories, much like hers, are innately grounded with the desires to feel safe, heard, and trusted in the business relationships she builds.  


She's been a marketing professional for over 11+ years with skills in project management, content creation, web design, community outreach and education, as well as SEO and keyword research. Carla has been featured on several publications and articles, including Canvas RebelFive After FiveMidwest MujeresBlack Owned AssociationThe Voyage Austin, Black Therapist Network, BiZ TV, and the Innovation Black Chamber of Commerce.
