Hello, and thank you for visiting Kristy Elizabeth Design.
I'm Kristy. I am based in a small town minutes from Annapolis, Maryland. Though I now reside on the East Coast, I grew up in Central California and spent my days swimming. I attended the University of California at Berkeley (CAL) on an athletic scholarship and competed in the 2000 U.S. Olympic Trials. I credit my athletic background for giving me the patience, practice and skill required to be a self-taught calligrapher and designer.
Having spent nearly 15 years in the corporate world, 10 of those years working for the world's most innovative company, I have a deep understanding of business etiquette and what an impact meaningful communication can have on one's career and business. Leveraging that corporate knowledge and pairing it with my athletic background, I've been able help athletes being thrust into the spotlight manage and strategize around their business etiquette, acumen and professional communication through hand-written correspondence. It's been a great reward.
I also have a great passion for creating beautiful things. Working with brides and event planners to create an invitation suite which coordinates perfectly with day of paper goods is one of my favorite things to do. I draw from nature, modern textiles, patterns and typography for inspiration. I believe staying true to my style always allows for me to create my best work: Classically-styled with a modern touch and dash of romance.
As a proud mother of two hilariously beautiful toddlers, Channing and Cassidy, and wife to one of Washington D.C's finest firemen, I started this business with one simple goal in mind. I wanted to bring joy and inspiration to people through my calligraphy and designs. And I wanted to give back by helping my fellow athlete's succeed in life and business.
Thank you to all of my clients and supporters for all of the happiness and motivation you bring to me each and every day. Here's to endless smiles, perfect moments, beautiful things and being thankful.
