Feature Friday: Ashley Ottinger

Ashley Ottinger stationery designer for Greenvelope.com

With roots in the deep south, Ashley Ottinger is a designer who finds inspiration in porch swings, patios and a cold glass of sweet tea. Corporate designer by day and stationery nerd by night, Ashley uses her stationery designs as an excuse to explore bold colors, classy serif fonts and unusual layouts. Today she shares a bit more about her journey, her style, and of course a few of her favorite things.

Could you share with us the favorite design of yours currently on Greenvelope.com and what the creation process was like?

I think my favorite design is currently Forty Years Young. It’s a little bit different from what I normally do, but I love the bold, type-driven aesthetic. When I was working on this invitation, I wanted it to feel mature, yet young and fun. I think the offset angles of “FORTY YEARS YOUNG” really accomplish that youthful feel. The bold color choices aid in that as well. read more…

Owner and Principal Designer at Stacey Meacham Design joins us from Atlanta, Georgia today to share a bit about her story and journey as a designer, her favorite piece of advice, and some music to add to your Spotify playlist.

Can you share a bit more about your journey as an artist – how you got started to where you are now?

For as long as I can remember I’ve been drawing or painting something, ever since I was a little girl, so it only made sense to pursue a career in the arts. I started as a fine artist and graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design. I’ve worked in small design firms, corporate marketing departments, advertising agencies and as a professor in advertising. Now I run my own one-woman design studio.
