Since launching Oh Joy Rx (the consulting branch of Oh Joy) in early 2010, I've worked with over 300 small business owners and creatives on their brands, products, creative services, and more. Here's what a few of them have to say...
"I turned to Joy after hitting a creative wall with my e-commerce store. From rethinking certain products and product categories to conceptualizing a new look for the store as well as the store's blog, Joy methodically helped me comb through my own site to pinpoint what was working and what wasn't. After our meetings, I felt confident and inspired to move forward and make vital new changes to my business. Joy has an extraordinary eye and a business sense that I trust and admire. Working with her was a pleasure and a privilege!"
- Christine Martinez, Lama Designs
"Thanks again Joy! It was the best Christmas present I could have given myself this year."

Joy is incredibly generous with drawing on her personal experiences and successes to help build yours. She acts as the best kind of gracious mentor-prompting, probing, pointing and guiding to bring out your best work. Her
eye for detail is legendary, and it applies across the board, whether she's addressing your packaging, your brand image, or your career path. Well, I'm forever grateful that she helped me with mine!
- Tamar Daniel, Hokey Croquis
When searching for guidance in my new direction, I turned to Mrs. Oh Joy for a Rx injection. She unraveled the mysteries that boggled me so and had all the answers I was dying to know. She mapped out my path quite carefully and concisely while directing me upward ever so precisely. She helped execute my innate style into my brand, and I must say she lent a rather stylish hand. Her knack is uncanny when it comes to exposure as she helped me launch Mrs. Lilien with perfect composure. If there was ever was a creative mistress to employ, it's none other than the illustrious Mrs. Oh Joy!
- Kelley Lilien, Mrs. Lilien Styling House
As a graphic design student seeking my first job, I was having a hard time getting attention with my cover letters. Joy gave me some valuable advice, and it helped a lot. I wrote a sincere cover letter to the Art Director of Nylon Magazine and in turn, it got me the interview and the job! I'm now the Marketing Designer at Nylon. Thank you so much!
Jenny Anna Ung, Designer
My consultation with Joy was made so that I could get a fresh perspective on how my presence on the internet is viewed, because after 11 years online I thought it was time to freshen "me" up and have a facelift of sorts. Our conversation was easy, and Joy was a pleasure to speak with. She validated some of my thoughts but also offered suggestions of some next steps to take, and I couldn't be happier!
Xandra Zamora, XYZ Ink
When Joy announced her Rx service, I thought it was a brilliant idea and exactly what I was looking for to help revamp a few dusty areas of my business. With brainstorms and gentle yet constructive feedback, she helped me sort
through various aspects of running a design business, prioritizing goals, and making improvements. I consider myself lucky to have the opportunity to hear her distinct perspective on my brand.
