creative director + owner
I am an extremely passionate designer (almost to a fault) paired with a creative mind that always is spinning with new ideas or things I want to do.
I am the creative director. I work alongside the designers and production managers and have a hand in everything. My biggest strength and role is understanding and translating our clients styles even if they don’t know how to describe it.
I started papellerie when I moved back home to Houston after years away as a graphic designer in NYC, then Chicago. I have always had a love for paper, textures and materials. I have found that stationery design is my perfect fit. Beautiful design, mixed with beautiful materials, and beautiful print methods.... it just doesn’t get better!
I love designing these timeless pieces that are so important to our clients. It is unique and priceless to be able to create a piece where a client shares the passion for the product as much as we do.
Where do you find inspiration?
Clients, the inspiration always comes from the client. Every client has a story, whether it is a bride or a new brand, there is always a story or a personality that evokes a style. I love to bring that to style life.
It changes weekly and I don’t like to get too comfortable. I love any font with a great set of glyphs. Always love a dramatic script (hand calligraphy), or a clean crisp gotham font. Can’t go wrong with a classic bold, thick, black bodoni. I can’t pick one.
When I am not designing I am....
Spending time with my husband and my boxer Frances Lucille. You will probably find us at a local restaurant in the Heights. I have always loved to shop, fashion is a form of design which I love. Most of all, we love to travel, travel, and travel more.
What could we always find in
Inside: Gold foil chips, a set of personal stationery, and many many pens. Almost always there is a pantone book, a 1/2 empty diet coke can, maybe a pantone mug from my morning coffee, a bottle of water and an OPI nail polish.
“This is my favorite brand ever, I know I
said that yesterday but no really, I mean it this time!”
Fletcher and I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with our save the dates. They were just PERFECT! Thank you for your patience, good judgment and incredible ideas. As soon as my mom and I met you, we were at total ease and excited to begin the design process. Our save the dates exceeded all our expectations and made our wedding festivities begin with a bang! The response has been amazing. Everyone has been talking about how cool they were. We could not have asked or dreamt of better service than you provided. Thank you Amy! We look forward to working on our wedding invitations.
