Olivia Kantyka Portrait

Shaking companies up to bring impact, visibility & growth

Considered "Mary Poppins" with a nothing is impossible mindset, Olivia owns the planning, creation, and implementation of impactful initiatives. She elevates companies through multidisciplinary planning, compelling communications, and purpose-driven marketing.

Olivia focuses on the human experience to help redesign the way brands communicate and the way they expand their brand profile. She translates insights to scope, plan, and spearhead initiatives including new brand launches, product/service expansions, and rebrand pivots. Her approach includes working with cross-functional stakeholders to analyze storytelling opportunities, synthesize quantitative research, develop communications design, and translate strategies into impactful stories to be brought to the world at scale. She leads companies as a trusted partner and advisor with a track record of building and managing strategic initiatives with both key stakeholders and diverse global teams. Olivia is a self-starter who is creatively confident and naturally curious. She strives to present ideas, concepts, and solutions to bring demonstrable change from day 1.

Her 7+ years of experience in brand strategy, account management, and operations is industry and company-size agnostic. She’s worked with 30+ startups, from early-stage MVPs through Series A companies, along with corporate entities including Fortune 500 companies.

In human words

"Olivia totally got our vibe and built a deck that had an incredible personality that aligned with us - and she did it SO fast! I've worked with other designers on decks before - and this is honestly the fastest and most seamless process I've ever had. My co-founder looked at the deck and her response was, "She really gets your personality!" Pretty amazing since we've never met."
