Janin Otwell

Partner, Creative Services Director

Hi! I'm Janin (pronounced like Shannon but with a J), the head of the Creative Services Division at Celebelle. I specialize in helping businesses and individuals with their branding, marketing, content writing, graphic design, and social media management needs. My passion lies in making your dream clients irresistibly drawn to connect and work with you.

With a natural talent for communication, I act as a conduit for your ideas, visions, and emotions. I excel at asking the right questions, and listening closely to what is said, hinted at, and left unsaid. Together, we'll embark on a journey of discovery, unearthing insights you didn't even know you had.

I have a special affinity for working with curious and vibrant individuals who embrace complexity. It's not the size of the company that matters but the quality of the ideas that power that company toward success. Let's dive deep and find our way to the unique message that resonates with your ideal clients.

With a BFA in Photography from the prestigious Savannah College of Art and Design, my creative journey began in 2001 in the commercial and fine art printing industry. With expertise in marketing, content writing, graphic design, and social media management, I bring a comprehensive skill set to the table, ensuring your brand stands out in today's competitive landscape.

Originally hailing from the vibrant city of Monroe, Louisiana, known by locals as Funroe, I bring a touch of lovable Southern eccentricity and a dash of Tony Chachere's to my creative work. Rest assured; I'll infuse that same SPICE  into your projects. And yes, crawfish IS one of my favorite foods.

When I'm not busy bringing ideas to life, you'll find me lounging in my pool, scouring estate sales for vintage kitsch, making art, or sharing a good laugh with my kids. Family, friends, and fostering long-lasting connections are my jam (for real).
