Behind the Scenes
Kayla Butler is the Creative Director, Stock Photographer and Founder of Ivorymix. She's enjoyed being a seasoned Interior Designer and Business graduate with more than 14 years design experience with a keen sense for branding and marketing.
Her expertise in the areas of branding, photography, and design comes from her extensive work with firms large and small on many physical and virtual projects all over the United States.
In her early 30's, with a long creative career in her back pocket, Kayla suddenly realized that she wasn't actually being very creative for herself anymore. In fact, she was simply managing the creative process of others day to day.
While continuing to support her family, she pursued getting back to her creative roots and discovered blogging, graphic design, and brand photography. The writing was on the walls and she quickly saw that her years of interior design, brand marketing, and business skills were a perfect match for her new endeavors online.
And so.... Ivorymix was born. Here, Kayla gets to work on her creative projects while also helping other bloggers who want to express themselves creatively, build successful businesses, and all while maintaining their life's balance and purpose.
After making progress and having worked with multiple bloggers and business owners on their brands, her husband James decided to jump in to lend a hand and joined the team in December of 2016.
James is a lifelong nerd and tech enthusiast. He was that kid who took apart the electronics in the house and put them back together properly…usually. James spent twelve years administering the computer systems for a small business and currently holds an Associates Degree in Network Systems Administration. His purpose here on Ivorymix has been to help you with the tech side of things to keep your computers and blogs running smoothly, while Kayla helps with the branding and photography.
Together, Kayla and James have 3 wonderful children and besides their work on Ivorymix, enjoy spending time together as a family, taking road trips to Seattle or spending quality time in their Northern California home.
