Crystal Oakes

Owner of Oakes Creative House, Graphic Designer, Business Coach

Hi, I’m Crystal!

You may know me as the owner and team leader over at Oakes Creative House, but for one day, I’m your go-to graphic design expert, ready to help you walk away with a deeper understanding of how to use your visual branding elements.

I pull from my 15+ years of experience in business and branding to provide you with exclusive resources to amplify your business brand. In those years, I’ve worked with large brands such as Johnathan Kayne from Project Runway and the First Americans Museum in Oklahoma City. Plus, I’ve strategized and implemented branding in 22 countries within 8 languages, and come from a family of entrepreneurs. Needless to say, I GET IT!

I’ve seen too many businesses suffer from not having the time, expertise or drive to work on their branding. It is a strategic art, and your business deserves the best. This workshop is designed to help you set aside the time needed to really lock in a brand that works.

I want to help you create a brand that you are proud of with next steps that are easy to implement.

So, what are you waiting for? It’s about time you really dive deep into your branding.

Elizabeth Potts

Designer & Illustrator

Hello! I’m Elizabeth, a graphic designer here at Oakes Creative House.

I’m here to allow you to pull from my design technique and illustrative expertise to help you create both a strategic AND beautiful brand that you love.

I myself enjoy exploring graphic design’s unlimited possibilities and showing others the beauty of design all around them, and I CAN’T WAIT to do so during our Brand Builders Workshop.

My specialties at OCH include illustration and logo design, and I’m also learning the world of web design from Crystal. I love to create, and enjoy putting my creativity to good use with our clients, learning new techniques and experimenting with mediums (painting is another passion of mine!).

If you’re interested in learning more about the creative process and how to use it to improve your business, this workshop is for you!

Not Sure if You’re the Right Fit?

Do your brand’s visuals feel disjointed?

Do you struggle to be confident in your designs?

Do you understand the power of your brand’s colors?

Do you struggle to feel like your visual brand is “finished”?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re a great fit for the Graphic Design like the Pros workshop!

We’ll help you find confidence in your branding as well as strategically select the elements you need to communicate the right message.

Don’t put your brand’s visuals on the back burner. It’s time to take control!

An Oakes Creative House Workshop

Personal. Hands-on. Engaging.

People learn best when they’re invited into the conversation.

It’s common sense! How often do you enjoy being lectured at for hours? You’re not alone!

That’s why, at our workshops, we prioritize…

Our workshops are packed with valuable info that you can apply to your business!


You should bring a laptop, access to your email, a folder with your visual branding elements, and any specific questions or design examples you want critiqued.


It’s perfect for anyone struggling with their brand’s visuals, feeling unsure about their design choices, or wanting to learn more about the strategic use of branding elements.

This agenda is subject to change as we continue to develop the workshop! We are also taking the information forms into consideration when tweaking this agenda. However, at this time we are planning:

9am 9:30 am: Getting settled and a bit of networking

9:30 – 12pm: Focused training on the foundations of design and live critiques of our work examples

12pm – 1pm: Break for lunch. Light snacks will be provided. You are free to bring your lunch or have something delivered. We are also working on partnering with a close restaurant who can delver all at once and take orders in advance. We did this to keep ticket costs low! You can network during this time as well.

1pm – 2:30pm: Hands-on design practices in Canva + access and info about our style guide workshop

2:30 – 3pm: Group Q&A + Wrap Up

We are capping the attendance of this event to be able to offer hands on critique and help. Our team will be in the room ready to circle the room and provide hands on help. We have 1.5 hours total planned of hands on help.

Basic level Canva skills are helpful when putting this workshop to practice. If you don’t have this, we encourage you to watch the Canva training videos prior to the workshop to have an initial understanding.

Brands We’ve Built

We’ve worked with an array of businesses across industries, so our portfolio is rather large! Here are a few of our favorites that you can explore to get a taste of the Oakes Creative House experience.
