We had the good fortune of connecting with Chansity Allen and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Chansity, career-wise, where do you want to be in the end?

As the CEO, my end goal professionally is to connect on a larger corporate scale to be a one stop shop for all branding and professional needs.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I have always been creative. In high school, my art class was taught by Ms. Sheila Bussey at Lithonia High School. She was a great mentor for me and 20 years later we are still in contact with each other. She was a genius at teaching you the fundamentals of art but allowed your creative thoughts to continue the piece. To this day her teachings are utilized in my designs. When it comes to color arrangement, negative space on designs, font types….all these factors come into play when creating.

When I started my business it was easy. I went to three friends (business owners) and asked if I could plant a seed and do something free for them and let me know what you think. Those three seeds planted has led my company to be a force in the branding world. I am a firm believer that if its too hard than its not for you. I am successful because I LOVE IT! When you put your love into anything it has no choice but to flourish. My company was founded on a desire to design with purpose and I am grateful to say we are well on our way.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If I had a best friend visiting the city my first stop would be to the Highlands area. They have great shops, great food and a casual vibe for a nice sunny day. My favorite restaurants that we would partake in are Roc South Kitchen, Pappadeaux, Surin of Thailand, Stoney River and Republic Social House. I love my home so we could have a firepit night and relax in a good vibe with a nice glass of wine. The one thing about Atlanta is there is always something going on in the city.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
When I began this journey in life I was blessed to have a great foundation from my village. As my mother would say, I have always been a flower child, meaning I go by the beat of my own drum. I have always been strong in my values and I have never been afraid to speak my mind. They allow me to be me and because of that I have the confidence to conquer any goal I set.

During my career there are many people I could “Shoutout” but it truly was my staff team at the YMCA that taught me how to develop professionally. My Executive Director, Winston Myers played a major role in the career driven professional I am today. He challenged me to go beyond my comfort zone and become a dominating force in project management and branding development. Brenda Rice, Aljami Durham, Corey Newsom, Joniese White, Jamaine Rowe, Harold Head, and Sharon Heard showed me what it meant to be a team and together we can accomplish anything.

I take those values taught and apply them to every project CAPPE & CO. encounters. From our initial consultation of truly understanding our clients design goals, to “Making the Connection” between each draft and then following up with the “WOW” factor where our clients are overwhelmed with excitement that we have created the vision they desired.
