that. fucking. feminist.
I’m Kiersten, the owner and designer of everything at that fucking feminist. Let’s start off on the right foot with some honesty: I am not a writer. I am a designer, I am a small business owner, I am a dog lover, crazy feminist from Michigan, who swears a lot and is very blunt, but I’ve never been a great writer, so bear with me. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get down to business!
In 2016 when I opened, I named my business Simply Kiersten. I quickly learned that nobody could spell “Kiersten” so when they’d try to find “Simply Kiersten” on google, they wouldn’t get too far, leaving them (and me) sad. Simply Kiersten turned into SK Designs as an easier spelling option, but I still wasn't in love with my brand's name (and damnit, I wanted to be IN LOVE - like Blake Lively + Ryan Reynolds kind of in love - with my business name).
When I decided to re-brand, I knew there was no going back. It had to be THE name, no more changes. I threw around every idea out there, like my dog's nicknames, my dog's real names, my home address (which was really cute but sounded like a furniture store) and every other thought out there. Nothing was exactly it, until... light freaking bulb. Who am I? I am That Fucking Feminist. You know, that fucking feminist who makes old white men angry by saying things like, "smash the patriarchy" or "the future is female" or "I voted for Hillary". THAT fucking feminist.
And there she was born.
Being able to create designs that say things like “feminism is my second favorite f word” (of course food being the first favorite, just kidding, it’s fuck) is so much more fun than another “live, laugh, love” design, amiright?!
I hope you love everything you see here. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions! Thank you for stopping by and supporting a woman-owned, small business.
