Vibe with our DIVA quotes this month


If you didn’t come to party, don’t bother knocking on my door.



There’s no point in saying anything, but the truth.

-Amy Winehouse



One economic recession, a ‘what could I possibly lose’ attitude, and a library card gave birth to Blissful Prints. Old-school door-knocking, handshaking relationships, and ‘how-tos’ built a full-service graphic design business. Custom luxury stationery and wedding invitations quenched the artistic thirst for design.


A growth in positioning, lots of fails/wins, and insane experience & knowledge allowed BP Creative Group’s transition to a full, creative boutique agency. While cranking out logos, creative campaigns, websites, and event design, one thought kept seeping in: “Why does all of this matter?”


Fortissima was launched to double down on bringing life and passion back to businesses by deconstructing old ways, vigorously uncovering gaps, and finding strategies to activate deeper connections with audiences through our signature process, The DIVA Mindset. We now can finally connect the dots of an after-taste.

There are a million brand strategists

Here’s what you’ll appreciate from M-C


I’m not just a brand strategist

My focus is building, launching, and scaling businesses. Strategy is a piece of it, but it’s not the only piece. Years of packaging design, wholesale marketing, product development, event design, fundraising, speaking & thought leadership has provided layers of goodness! I’m at your fingertips and an open book, so ask me anything.


We keep it *real* small

You have access to someone on our team within minutes. Providing 1:1 support allows us to alleviate the amount of stress and time it would take to jump through hoops and find the right person working on your brand. Our roster is reserved for brands who want an intentional strategist and designer.


Boundaries are in place for a reason

Creating a business has allowed me to balance life as a wife, mother, entrepreneur, designer, strategist, and team member. With all that said, you want me at my best! If I expect the same from you, it’s important to prioritize boundaries and conflicts right from the start.

Our Signature Style

Fortissima is built on The DIVA Mindset.
