Oh Simple Joys


A CREATIVE RESOURCE FOR THOSE ON THE JOURNEY TO a SELF TAUGHT lifestyle

T H E   S T A R T


Let's start at the very beginning, a very good place to start... (I like to sing, I cannot help it) Graphic design is something I slowly developed a passion for over time. I did not get a college degree in this study, nor did I dabble in it when I was younger. My love for design all began when planning my wedding several years ago. I realized that design services of any kind cost a pretty penny, and I simply did not have the money to get the custom look I wanted for my wedding. Thus began my ever winding journey to becoming a self taught designer. 

Since that day I have spent hours pouring over videos, tutorials, articles, and more soaking up everything I can about the world of design. I am drawn to very clean and feminine designs but have a love for minimalism as well. I enjoy developing logos and branding more than anything but find that designing wedding suites, Christmas cards, blog layouts, and even the occasional party invitation keep me on my toes creatively. I thrive on wearing many hats and love a good creative challenge. 

I believe that design services should be affordable. Stay at home moms with food blogs, handmade business owners, start up small businesses, and entrepreneurs should be able to get a clean website, logo, or collateral goods without having to spend a small fortune. So my goal here at Oh Simple Joys is to bring high quality design services to you at an affordable price while also serving as resource for others seeking to be self taught designers.

“It's the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary; only wise men are able to understand them” 

Simple joys are all around us, tucked away in the most ordinary of places and moments, and when I started this blog and little handmade shop 3 years ago that is what I wanted to capture. I wanted my readers, customers, and clients to feel happy when they visited this space, and to leave noticing more of the small hidden joys during their days. The joy that comes from real cream in your coffee, sunshine pouring in through the windows, fresh cut flowers, a home-cooked meal, and friends laughing around your table together, that is what Oh Simple Joys is about deep at the core. These are the things that inspire me most as a designer and person. 

I bring this inspiration from the simple joys I stumble across and pour it into my creative endeavors in hopes of creating beautiful things and a more real, down to earth experience for all my readers and clients. Ultimately Oh Simple Joys strives to spread joy through design, encouraging truth, and a little bit of wit and humor thrown in for good measure.
