See what people are saying about Desi Design:

Desi in one word is fabulous. I have had the honor of knowing her since middle school and her work is always everything and more. She has designed my wedding invitations, aisle runner, save the dates, shower invitations (wedding and baby), my daughter's 1st birthday invites, and favors for my wedding with precise detail.  She really takes the time to find out what you are looking for and creates several beautiful options to choose from. She guides you through the process flawlessly and always lets you know everything upfront, no hidden fees here! I love the fact that when I want to DIY a project she can easily send the file over and I can print it myself if I want.  She has even completed designs within 24 hours! It is such a blessing knowing that when a special event comes around I have Desi to call on! Thanks Desi for your great work!

I have been familiar with Desiree's work both from a professional and personal perspective and highly recommend working with her for all your design needs! Professionally, she always comes up with the most creative product and package designs - always based on the latest industry and consumer trends. Her work never disappoints and has proven to be very successful and appealing to consumers at large, nationwide stores - i.e. - her work translates to top $$$! She is extremely easy to work with and always has a quick turn-around, which are both fantastic in a face-paced work environment.

Personally, I was lucky enough to have her design my wedding monogram. I remember feeling like I didn't do a good job communicating my and my fiance's taste, but she took what I gave her and came up with all GORGEOUS choices - all based on what we were looking for. It was like she read our minds! Every design was more fantastic than the next, and we had a hard time narrowing it down! We finally chose the one that best represented us, and we applied it to so many things like our church programs, our reception placecards, and even our cake! She formatted the logo appropriately for each project so that it was very easy to work with! We got so many compliments from our wedding guests on our big day! It was fantastic to have her personal touch!

Desiree is a true talent and professional as well as a graduate of one of the top design schools in the nation - the Cleveland Institute of Art (CIA). Most importantly, you can tell she loves her work and especially loves being apart of her clients' happiness!

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!
