Sara Smith

Creative Director and the "What If Lady"

In January of 2023, Sara combined all of her creative business endeavors under one roof (Company 218 and QwikBrands), so she could better serve her customers and clients while freeing up more time to be with family and create for the sake of creating.

As the Creative Director, all projects start and end with Sara. She leads and guides new business owners and solopreneurs through the content and design process for the private clients of CustomQwik, WriteQwik, and IdeaQwik.

Sara takes great pride in incubating and developing ideas, brainstorming, answering questions, putting out fires, and being a resource for anyone looking to keep their marketing and designs simple and sustainable.  

Chanaya Wheelock

Senior Designer and Technical Advisor

Chanaya brings a wealth of design experience and technical know-how to everything we do at Company 218 and QwikBrands—creating custom websites, magazine layouts, and e-book templates or designing swoon-worthy swag for our clients and their branded apparel.

As a Certified UI/UX Designer and QwikBrands Senior Designer & Technical Advisor, Chanaya works closely with our design team and Creative Director to ensure everything we create for our private clients looks and works exactly as it should—perfectly and intuitively.

Chanaya loves digging in and working on complex projects and then translating those projects into something our clients understand.
