Logo Design - J & E Tent Rental


I was thrilled to work with Emily from J & E Tent Rental in creating a new logo for her company. I was inspired by the beautiful photos on her site, and wanted to create a logo that communicated the same message. The final design communicates style & elegance that her tents can bring to an event:


She has a huge selection of tents ranging from casual to elegant to accent any occasion. If you are planning an outdoor event in the Atlanta area, check out her website http://j-etentrental.com

It is so rewarding to me to visually make a client’s ideas come to life. If you are eager to start that new project, turn to me for fresh creative design.

5-9 Events: Logo Design


  I enjoy making beautiful things happen! I spend my 9-5 hours working for a corporation designing packaging and products that are sold at many mass retailers nationwide. I love my job & the creativity that I get to have.

  My freelance services thru Desi Design not only include invitations & announcements, but sometimes I get the opportunity to work on identity graphic design programs for fantastic clients. Such is the case with the project you are about to see!

   Deanna from 5-9 Events was an absolute delight to work with on the design of her company’s logo and style guide. I was thrilled to hear that she was starting her own Event Planning business in Virginia, after many years of coordinating and hosting several successful events in Ohio. My mind raced with several possibilities for the look of her company identity. The end result is fun & friendly, just like Deanna’s approach to Event Planning. 




  Her motto is “You have a 9-5, let us handle the rest.” She understands that her clients are busy with work & kids, so she shortens their to-do list in planning birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, showers and weddings. I love that her services range from last minute event errands to full event planning, including day-of-coordination. How many times have I been at a wedding or child’s birthday party when the hostess has leaned over to me and whispered “I should have hired someone to help with this!” And really, that’s what Deanna is here for! Put her creativity and organization to work so you can enjoy your day. If you are planning an event in the Newport News, VA area, check out her website: http://59events.blogspot.com/

I loved helping make Deanna’s ideas come to life. If you are eager to start that new project, turn to me for fresh creative design.

Monogrammed Aisle Runner


This week I have spent my evenings working on a custom monogrammed aisle runner for Mary’s wedding in July. It is all hand work, so it gives me a chance to get my hands dirty making something beautiful. This monogrammed aisle runner will add a touch of glamour and style to her walk down the aisle! What better for her grand entrance?

Here’s a sneak peak of the work in progress, and now I must get back to work!:

Bridal Shower Thank You Cards


  On Sunday I had the pleasure of attending Mary’s Bridal Shower. I wanted to give her something personalized that she could use as she prepares for her wedding (in addition to all the fabulous kitchen and bath items on her registry which I had fun shopping for.)

  Personalized Bridal Shower Thank You Cards go the extra step to make recipients feel well thanked for their thoughtfulness – and they look chic and sophisticated (just like the bride!) Here's her gift.... Following the romantic, feminine design of her wedding invitations.





  Personalized Bridal Shower Thank You Cards make great gifts & show your appreciation in a an elegant and timeless way.

Amber & William - Wedding Invitation


  Elegant & Sophisticated - these words describe this couple and their Wedding Invitations.  I had the pleasure of custom designing this Wedding Invitation set for Amber and William, a charming couple getting married this fall who I had the pleasure of meeting through a referral. Amber was a delight to work with during the design process - she had fabulous ideas and focused vision on her wedding colors and her timeless style.


  Eggplant, rich navy and a touch of silver made for a gorgeous combination. I think this invitation is a great reflection of how beautiful their wedding will be. This was printed on pure white semi-gloss cardstock, which provides a crisp clean backdrop to the elegant typography and detailing.
































I will absolutely be waiting on the edge of my seat to see the photos from this wedding! 
Thank you so much Amber and William and congratulations!
