Charity D’Amato-Crawford said hello to Cleveland in 1998. Immediately she fell in love and and launched I Heart Cleveland to share her city’s amazing beauty, experiences, and her daily happenings.
Feeling quite at home, Charity ventured into the business community—founding studio Chartreuse, a boutique brand design and packaging firm. Charity’s creative work has been featured throughout the city via clients like The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, The Western Reserve Historical Society, Playhouse Square, and the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes.
In addition to collaborating with clients, Charity is busy brightening the city around her. She regularly mentors fellow entrepreneurs and is a member of the Junior League of Cleveland. She also volunteers for the Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital and sneaks strawberries as a board member of the North Union Farmers Market.
Charity also loves designing eclectic interiors. Experimenting with color, artwork, fabrics and found furnishings—yes please. Many of her interior home (and Airstream) transformations have been featured on Design Sponge and in Better Homes & Gardens. The best place to catch up with this busy designer, mom, and regional influencer? Cityside, of course, adoring all things vintage, yellow, and sparkly.
