The Studio


Flint House is a design studio that specializes in brand development and website design. With mindfulness and sophistication at our roots, we aim to create designs that are both timeless and effective — transcending trends while still attracting the right people. Based in Chicago, USA, we serve local, national, and international clients — helping brands authentically tell their story and connect with their ideal target audience. 

We adopt a holistic approach when it comes to brand development. We believe that a successful brand works from the inside out — while the visual aspect of branding is important, the underlying message & strategy lie at the heart of the brand. With this mindset, we are not only able to help our clients accurately portray their businesses to their audiences, we also help them effectively attract their ideal target market and see increased growth and success in their businesses.

The Founder

Hi there, I’m Jessie Kershisnik (ker/shis/nik) — Flint House’s founder and brand strategist + creative director. With an extensive background in advertising and over 6 years of branding design experience, I help business owners find clarity in their business + brand, all while crafting a beautiful brand identity that sets them apart from their competitors and attracts their ideal audience.

I've always been fascinated by flint — how something so seemingly simple is able to create such a big, beautiful fire. I've carried that visual with me throughout my years as a designer. With the mindset of less is more, I help craft each of my clients' brands with intentional, minimal design that — just like flint — creates a burning impact that's hard to ignore.

Our Mission

We approach all our work with our 3 guiding M’s: mindful, minimal, and meaningful.

Mindful.

We start each project by taking the time to dive deep into our clients’ businesses — so we can be as authentic as possible in representing who they are and what they stand for. With mindfulness as our guide, we are able to truly help each client as a visual communicator. What’s beautiful design, after all, if it isn’t effective?

Minimal.

Less is always more. We believe that the softest voice can speak volumes in comparison to all of the noise surrounding it. Our tried-and-true design process cuts out all of the fluff and makes room for what matters most, and — just like flint — creates a burning impact that's hard to ignore.

Meaningful.

A brand is so much more than just a logo — it's the passion + heart that you personally put into your business. We focus on what makes your business shine and integrate that spark into all aspects of your brand identity, allowing you to connect and resonate with your target market.
