Balancing Brides, Budgets, and Brand Overhauls.
... AND STILL MAKING TIME FOR OUR WEEKLY BACHELOR WINE NIGHTS.
DESIGNER + CALLIGRAPHER
Call me Steph! I'm the designer, calligrapher and illustrator behind SBD. Every single day, I get to combine my education in graphic design, fortunate handwriting, and passion for all things "wedding" to deliver an experience to our clients that starts with a coffee date and ends with a product that wows.
I'm married to my high school sweetheart, love the color gray, hate chain restaurants, and strongly prefer melted cheese over cheese sauce on my nachos.
Nothing gets me goin' more than the start of a new project. A blank page in my sketchbook just waiting to be filled with brilliant ideas. But amidst the creative excitement, someone has to be there crunching the numbers and evaluating logistics. That someone, is most certainly, not me.
That's where I come in. Hi there, I'm Michelle! (although, I've been known to answer to Mixcel ... I really, really love Excel). Whether I'm sitting in on the creative brainstorm as we dream up your Invitation Suite, or spending countless hours planning the gourmet feast I'm making for dinner - you can guarantee I have a perfectly formatted Excel sheet for it. Along with a bulleted, itemized checklist and a timeline that is mapped out down to the minute.
I'm a planner by nature, so my early career as a Media Planner is no surprise. After six years and three advertising agencies, I decided to marry my knack for managing the details with my love for weddings (see what I did there?) and join forces with Steph to round out our small but mighty design studio.
Enough about us, we can't wait to hear your story!
