Our Story

Born near Seattle & raised outside of Salt Lake City, Jess Kasteler grew up in a creative environment & learned the beginnings of art, design, & HTML before graduating high school. She started her first design business in the form of a tiny Etsy shop during college when she was 20 years old creating party printables & a few small logo projects here & there.

After her son was born, Jess quit her day job to pursue design full time & opened up shop as Blush Creative Studio.  Under this brand, we had the opportunity to work with hundreds of inspiring creative business owners branding their businesses & building websites while also allowing us to learn so much about our own brand, our clients, & our overall project experience.

Over time, our business has grown & changed, our team has expanded, & our vision for what the brand should be has shifted to what it is now. Recently rebranded as Mara Design Co., we partner with businesses all over the world to build strong, beautiful brands & intentional, strategic websites.

Jess values a strong work/life balance, loves yoga, traveling the world, reading a good book, & keeping fresh flowers in the house as much as possible.  She lives in a charming little house in the quiet town of Kaysville, Utah with her husband Brandon (our technical director!) & their two kids, Hunter & Lucy.
