Playing with pigments at Studio Chavelli |

Here at Studio Chavelli, I offer a fresh approach to designs for celebrations and big occasions. Bringing a playful yet sophisticated eye, a passion for paper and printing, and an outstanding network of production artists, each original creation is as unique as the people I work with. Together, every piece is holistically conceptualized and designed in-house, created to set the tone and enrich your amazing event.

From the first phone call to the final piece in the mail, you receive a full-service experience, where you will be comfortably guided and cared for throughout the entire project. All you have to do is simply delight in the fun of designing while savoring the process and your peace of mind.

My Design Philosophy


It was my love of connecting with people that drew me away from corporate design and towards working with individuals for their special occasions. I adore love, and interpreting personalities and passion onto paper. 

My obsession and experience with type, calligraphy and letters means I strive to make each design a gorgeous piece of compelling communication. I carefully consider how you and your audience are going to engage with each and every creation. Web-design types might call this the “user experience”. I like to call it an empathetic, client-focused, approach. 

When designing something as “simple” as an invitation, I don’t just consider what the recipients’ eyes are going to see when they open the envelope. I think about what their hands and fingers will touch, and how they will move as they read and anticipate what’s to come (a fabulous event!). 

I want the impact to be a delight to both the eyes and the heart.

As your creative collaborator, I go beyond trends and cosmetic trickery. These days, anyone can create cards adorned with gold foil and letterpress printed words. Instead, I infuse my designs with your spirit and uniqueness; and ensure they will capture your once-in-a-lifetime occasion and the beautiful memories to come.


The Process


Every potential project begins by building a foundation of trust and understanding. Even before you give the go ahead for your project, I spend time getting to know you with a live call. It doesn't stop there though. I will be with you throughout the whole process—answering questions, giving guidance, and being a resource as you go through this exciting—and often stressful!—time of planning.

Unlike most others out there who juggle many ongoing projects at the same time (over weeks or months!), I allocate a block of time in my schedule to working only on your project. I call this our Design Session.

During this period exclusively devoted to you, I develop concepts inspired by your vision, refine them according to your feedback, and produce a finished design ready for your approval, all without the distraction of other projects. Yup, you get private time with a creative design brain and extensive resources to turn your special project into a reality! No waiting days for a response, no time wasted wondering if your email was received.
