Featured Expert: Whitney Barnard

Whitney Barnard of Double Dare Creative began practicing typography and illustration after falling in love with the fanciful writing in the opening credits of Walt Disney's classics when she was just six years old. She's the mom of twins, Porter and Ryder, and their younger (and much rowdier) brother, Scout. 

Whitney attended the Fashion Institute of Technology during her summers in high school where she learned to design, market and drive sales for eCommerce platforms. After acquiring a degree in marketing, Whitney attended the Creative Circus in Atlanta, Georgia for a degree in Design. 

When she was 21 years old, she decided to turn her favorite pastime into a profession. What started as a small Etsy shop that she launched from a one-bedroom apartment, is now a brand that is sold in top-tier retailers such as Macy's, Nordstrom, Francesca's, Barnes & Noble and Hallmark. Alongside prominent retail features, Whitney's designs and products have landed in publications like Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, Garden & Gun, and numerous local news articles. 

You can typically find her chalking on walls for businesses throughout the U.S., chasing around her three rowdy boys, or noshing on food truck grub.
