It Begins with You
The idea of Customates stemmed from the love of personalised gift-making. Seeing the receiver’s face light up upon getting something that is unique, thoughtfully made for that one person only is what drives the founder, Stef and Kim to turn their interest into business. Their creativity coupled with passion in design and gift-making has allowed the company to later evolve into one offering event planning and decoration service - aiming to create beautiful and memorable party filled with laughter and happiness.
Today, with a strong team headed by three passionate and capable women who knows how to have fun- Customates thrives on the challenge of creating one-of-a-kind experiences for their clients. No two events by Customates are alike - be it weddings, birthday parties or corporate events.
Kim, Co-founder & Principal Planner
Though coming from an Accounting & Finance background, event planning has always been a longtime passion for Kim since her college days. She was working in several MNC’s Finance Department for more than 5 years but rather than continuing to climb the corporate ladder, she instead followed her passion for design, details and planning.
Kim is the fairy godmother everyone needs when it comes to realising their dream event. She believes in a relaxed approach when guiding the planning and design process, creating a fun and stress-free experience. Known for her excellent memory amongst clients, she is also dubbed ‘the recorder’ - referring to her ability to memorise and recap all details during the planning process with clients. Each aspect is well taken care of.
Stef, Co-founder & Event Desginer
Stef is a creative soul and the design brain behind all the extraordinary events by Customates. She has a varied background in Graphic Design industry, therefore believes strongly in the power of small details that make big impacts.
Her design is inspired by the story of each and every individual, couple or family. As the creative and design arm of Customates, she is able to beautifully combine her passion for storytelling through design and transforming magical spaces using unique visual elements, bringing client’s vision to life.
She believes everyone and every event has a brand, branding is what an event look and feel like. If an event is a person, what would their personality be? Friendly fun, inspirational? By thinking about these kinds of questions, you can be sure to create a brand for the event that will connect with your audience - by meeting their needs for entertainment or information. It helps to build the right kind of relationship with audiences.
