Yvette Craddock - Designer

About Yvette Craddock

My life is a fluid and curious exploration of the intersection of beauty, art, design and intellect. It is an ongoing pursuit of inspiration and revelation. My path has been the same – centered on communication and creativity – but the manifestation of its purpose has blossomed as life has unfolded before me.

I grew up studying the arts including drawing, painting, craft, music and dance as well as immersing myself in academic success. I am a left- and right-brain introvert who enjoys life through a multi-dimensional, high-definition color lens with Dolby stereo sound. My ideas flow in layered visions of words and images infused with a spectrum of emotion. I remain passionate about creativity and its influence on helping navigate life and understand bigger life concepts. I find understanding life on an individual and collective level through the context of various cultures fascinating. These topics have always spoken to my mind and heart.

My career began in the Fortune 500 International Business corporate environment in L.A.  One day an opportunity to work in the home furnishings industry for a modern design innovator surfaced. After accepting that experience my life changed and launched my marketing career. After investing years in my entrepreneurial marketing career, representing global brands in health, fitness, finance and beauty,  life-changing events help me to more deeply reconnect to my heart. This fusion of self has guided me to transition to a conscious-based business that provides others resources for the development of soul-centered individuality and guides them to intentionally live on purpose.

How Did I Get Here?

Nearly seven years ago, I made a conscious decision to begin a transformative life and business journey. At that time, the details were unknown. However, I knew unequivocally that my decision was necessary. It became a soul matter of life and death. After nearly seven years of a tumultuous chapter in my life (fodder for a book), I have connected all of the dots of these different pathways that I have explored on this journey to embark on launching a new brand that is the culmination of me.  That decision has been the catalyst for new work in my entrepreneurial journey and the foundation for this site.

My Service Desire

My desire is to be of service in helping people make connections that are more meaningful in life; personally and professionally. Those connections start with knowing yourself and having the strength and courage to be that authentic person everyday and in every situation so that you can live an inspiring life on purpose.
