sharon-mcmullen-Back-to-school-2Introducing… well…. it’s Ink + Mortar!

It wouldn’t be a full class schedule without a little branding! I’m Sharon McMullen, owner of Ink + Mortar, and I’m really excited to be offering two classes this fall to help build your brand’s aesthetic and to show you how we create our own handmade designs and bring them online. Cheer’s to tackling your brand’s image this fall and kicking off 2016 in style!



Introducing Michael Klipper and Mark Gernerd

As we grow our businesses, finances can become more and more daunting as the money starts coming in. Where is the best place to spend it? How can I manage my savings? How can I get to even start a savings?? We’ve all been there and these guys know how to get you past it with flying colors. Michael Klipper is the man behind growing so many financially sound creative businesses in Philly and Mark Gernerd is the fantastic financial planner who knows how to manage our growing assets. I’m thrilled they have jointly offered to teach a class on all things financial and kicking our financial growth into overdrive!



Introducing Kelly Heard

I met Kelly at Wordcamp Philly and when I learned her passion for sharing her depth of knowledge in all things Google, I knew we had to have her on board for our Back to School series! Kelly is the owner of Ambition Digital and her background and understanding of how to leverage these tools to better your business is a key reason we asked her to do two special classes for us!   /    twitter   /   linkedin



Introducing Emma Still

We’re thrilled that Emma Still from SEER Interactive will be teaching a fantastic SEO course for our Back to School series! After taking Emma’s SEO class at Girl Develop It and being blown away by both the knowledge I learned and her amazing ability to teach, we had to bring her back to teach on for our series.  /  instagram   /  twitter  /   linkedin  /



Introducing Cheyenne Gil

Our first two classes for our Back to School workshops are here! Meet Cheyenne Gil, our teacher for all things photography. She’s a philadelphia-based boudoir photographer and talented beyond words. Cheyenne has been helping women feel confident in their own skin for years and is excited to share her expertise in creating beautiful imagery to help you create stunning images all your own.  /  instagram  /  facebook



August is here and Fall is just around the corner! To kick-off this upcoming school year, we thought it was time we all went back to school, even just for a little while. Ink + Mortar is proud to present a collection of curated classes to help build your brand and your business. We’ve partnered with a selection of Philadelphia experts to host classes in our Old City studio, to share their knowledge in taking your business to the next level this fall.



We couldn’t be more excited to announce

the Build a Brilliant Brand class
is coming online in January!

This 5 week course is a do-it-yourself version of the design process I use with my clients, giving you access to how to start with a vision and bring it life, under budget and in only 5 weeks. We will cover inspiration boards, typography, logo development, basic website setups and building content.

We’ll be sharing many more details leading up to the launch in January, so sign up for our BBB email list and we’ll keep you informed (and send some discounts your way!)

What a great night with Girl Develop It Philly! My Building a Brilliant Brand class was sold out and I had such a great group of women (and men!) come out to learn how to build a better brand with their own two hands. We worked closely on inspiration boards, typography and quickly covered resources and tricks for sourcing images and nailing down your site content. What a whirlwind!




Thanks again to Girl Develop It for having me and to you to all who came out! There will be another class in November, so stay tuned!


I’m teaching a workshop called Building a Brilliant Brand on Wednesday, February 26th from 11:30am-12:30pm at Cultureworks on methods I use with my clients to build their brand at any level. I’m so excited to share my resources and tips and help make some magic happen.

The workshop is free for members of Cultureworks and $10 for non-members and you can register for one-on-one consultations after the class as well. If you’re interested in joining, RSVP to Zach at

Can’t wait to see you there!
