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:

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.

House Watercolor Paintings

I'm so excited to share these custom commissioned house watercolor paintings. An illustrated house is the perfect way to pay tribute to your home! Capture the nostalgia of your childhood home in a gift for your parents or siblings, celebrate a new home in a gift for your spouse, or surprise a friend with their favorite piece of architecture.

This makes the perfect gift for so many occasions...
House Warming
Mothers Day
Fathers Day
First Home
Parent/Grandparent Gift
Realtor Closing Gift

These paintings were ordered as Christmas gifts.  The first is from a daughter to her parents, of the house she grew up in. They had recently moved, and this was the perfect nostalgic gift for them to remember the house where their children grew up.
The next is from a wife to a husband, to celebrate their first house together and so many memories they have built starting their family.

Safari Birthday Invitations

It was so wonderful to meet Jenny all the way from Australia. Her adorable little boy is turning the big 1.  She loved the Safari invitations featured on my blog and wondered if she could order them in time for her little man’s big birthday celebration. I was happy to offer her a design service to create the invitations that she could print herself in Australia. Here is how cute they came out:

It was also great to meet Ana from New York, who also loved my safari invitations. These safari invitations were inspired by all things travel – passports, boarding passes – and of course cute animals! Instead of a photo front, she requested animal illustrations. I think it came out adorable! It has been wonderful to get to meet from all over the globe and share my designs with them. Thank you! 

Commisioned Watercolor Painting

I had so much fun creating this wishing dandelion watercolor for Crystal. I started with a small loose sketch style to get a  feel for what she liked, then finished with a larger painting.

Here was my small sketch version:

Here is my final version:
 Thank you Crystal for the opportunity to paint this for your family. I'm so touched that it has a special meaning to you!
