Compose is a Chicago-based styling and prop studio founded by Janelle Gonyea. The studio specializes in creating unique concepts for events, photo shoots, interiors and lookbooks. Over the years, Janelle has developed a trained eye for curating collections, anticipating design trends, and creating branded vignettes. By working together on creating an overall concept with her clients, she is able to design and style their project to establish a vision for telling a story and creating connection.

Founder and Creative Director, Janelle Gonyea, doesn't like to take life too seriously. As a child-at-heart, she dreams of fantasy worlds and far off places. After getting a degree in Illustration from the College for Creative Studies, her love for creating concepts and telling tales just grew. She believes in the power of making and visual storytelling to create a sense of wonderment and awe, to draw people in to the heart of a story. Whether you are looking for a vignette for your event, product styling for your upcoming look book, or the design of the latest issue of your publication, it is her passion to start with a basic sense of who you are, and build on that to create an inviting story.
