The Head Stand started out as an Etsy shop called The Head Shop, run by husband and wife team, Virginia and Shawn. They started out heavy in the craft and handmade world, doing dozens of craft shows to sell their hand screen printed tees, totes and art prints, adorned with the heads of their favorite artists. Hence the name, The Head Shop. As time passed, more requests for custom work came along; wedding invitations, stationery, you name it. At the same time Virginia's graphic design career was growing and changing. She went from Lead Graphic Designer + Project Manager at a local design studio, Kneadle, to a work-at-home mama.
The Head Shop's brand shifted and at the same time became a design boutique, rather than just an online retail shop. This is when The Head Stand was born as an out of the box media and marketing design shop for small businesses. Offering services like social media design and consulting, chalk art illustrations for coffee houses and cafes and of course custom graphic design. The company has continued to move and grow with the ever-changing needs of their clients. They also offer one-and-one business consulting and brainstorm sessions for fellow small businesses.
Member of Boss Ladies since 2014.
Virginia has always loved to draw and write notes - her love of design stemmed from there. She's also a lover of stove-popped popcorn, movies and her two fair-haired boys. You can find her shopping the aisles of the local thrift, at your local cafe doodling on chalkboards or meeting up with her fellow Boss Ladies group at The Makery in Anaheim.
Shawn is a thrill seeker, who loves the moon, bacon cheeseburgers, skateboarding, swimming and building pillow forts. You can find him at home sculpting cardboard into amazing works of art, at the skatepark, doing Google deep dives or crunching numbers in his office.
