This week my spotlight series is focusing on my friend Chakarra Durr and her business Grape Ink Design! She and I work together, same place different departments and yet while we only see each other in passing, we have interacted on social media! She created a logo for me that I love so much! It was everything I wanted! Everything I had pictured, she brought to life!
She was born in Monroe, NC and raised in Indian trail. Her graphic design journey has been an interesting one. It began with her eye for art and then she began to play around with it. "I played around with paint on an old school dial up computer, and the rest was history!" she told me.
We all need a break sometimes, but we don't give up on our dreams. That is what warms my heat so much with Chakarra's story! She felt down but she is back better than ever! And you know? She has big plans in store!
She wants to open her own studio as well as design something for a billboard. I would be on the look out for this if I were you! Her talent is limitless!
Thanks for reading and I'll see you Friday!
