HOW IT STARTED

The spark that ignited Diane's passion for creating relatable illustrated characters came during a shopping excursion at a major retailer. Dissatisfied with the lack of designs that truly resonated with her, she fearlessly embarked on a mission to craft her own captivating characters that championed representation. Like real representation, not just two or three.

In 2020, the trailblazing character Maxi was born, marking the beginning of an exhilarating adventure. After securing the necessary copyrights, Diane proudly unveiled her inaugural character collection in the fall 2021. Her intention behind these creations is clear—to inspire individuals to embrace their unique selves, to accept and celebrate who they are, and to defy societal pressures that attempt to mold them into something they're not. Diane firmly believes that each one of us is beautifully distinct, and her designs reflect that belief. "I wanted to capture various skin tones and moods in my designs," she reveals. "I poured my heart into each design and truly cherish every character I've brought to life."

SPARKLE BLU

FUN FACTS

Why is your logo white?

Our logo is white to symbolize transparency and neutrality rather than representing a specific skin color. We designed our logo this way to ensure that our brand remains inclusive and avoids bias. We celebrate diversity and understand that beauty comes in many forms, which is why our character designs showcase a wide range of skin tones and hair colors. Our choice of a white logo is a deliberate decision to emphasize our commitment to transparency and to create a welcoming space for all women, regardless of their background or skin color.

What's the story behind your brand's name?

The "Sparkle" represents the essence of our brand, symbolizing the radiant energy and shine that we believe every woman possesses within. It embodies the spirit of confidence, joy, and self-expression that we aim to inspire through our character designs.

The word "Blu" adds a unique touch to our brand name. We intentionally chose to spell it differently, using "Blu" instead of the traditional "Blue," to reflect our creativity and desire to stand out.

Where do the character names come from?

Each character has its own unique name derived from some amazing family members, friends, inspiring historical women and life amusement. 

Who was the inspiration behind your very first character name?

Our very first character name, Maxi, was inspired by my mother, who embodies strength and resilience.

What was the first product you created?

The first product we created featuring our characters was a set of vibrant stickers.
