Behind the Name
If you ask Jane and Jenn the origin of the brand name, they will give completely different answers. However, they do agree on the inspiration — the story of The Ugly Duckling. Many business owners can feel out of place or unsure of their worth until they find their niche and learn what it feels like to be appreciated for their true value. Every business is a swan waiting to soar.

How it All Began…
Jane Clark and Jenn Wells were designers, business owners, and friends. Despite over a decade of running their own separate businesses, they knew they wanted to collaborate on something. While the idea of working together had been tossed around, the co-founders didn’t have a solid idea of what that would look like until late 2019, when Jenn confided to Jane that she was planning on leaving her then full-time job to focus on running a business. Within 30 seconds, Jane had called her friend to get the details and started a conversation that would continue for several months and result in the founding of BrandSwan LLC in February of 2020.
In July of 2020, Teakettica (12 years) and Jenn Wells Design (9 years) officially merged into BrandSwan. In May of 2022, Jenn left her business owner role at BrandSwan to pursue a marketing position in the nonprofit sector. Jane continues to lead the BrandSwan team. They remain best of friends and Jenn is BrandSwan’s #1 evangelist.
