— BrandSwan Co-Founder Jenn Wells

"We want everyone to have a brand they are proud of and the support they need to do work that matters. That's it. That's our story."

— BrandSwan Co-Founder Jane Clark

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.

BrandSwan is a Delaware branding agency specializing in brand design, web design, and marketing.

How it All Began…

Jenn Wells and Jane Clark, Co-Founders of BrandSwan

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 somethingWhile 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.
