Today, I’d LOVE to introduce you to my college friend Leslie, who owns a beautiful stationery design business called Slieberry Designs!  Leslie specializes in wedding invitation suites (save the dates, invitations, programs, menus, escort cards, etc.) and works with individuals to get their perfect design made, in the color/font of their choice, at a reasonable price and with unlimited draft revisions!  She’s worked on a few of my friends and I know they’ve all definitely been happy with Leslie’s service.  But for those who are already married, she also offers super cute personalized note cards in her newly opened etsy shop (and has been constantly adding new designs since its’ inception a few weeks ago)!  I actually just ordered a set the other day and she was great to work with in terms of wording/color/font customizations and had super fast shipping!  πŸ™‚  And just for my readers, she is offering 15% off your order from her etsy shop with code “SANDYALAMODE” or 15% off her custom design services if you just mention my blog, cool huh?  πŸ™‚  Well, read below for a sweet interview to get to know her better.. and for the giveaway, of course!

P.S. It’s her BIRTHDAY today, so wish her a happy one!! πŸ˜‰

 

{MEET LESLIE}


 

1) Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to start your own design business?
Hi, my name is Leslie, and I’m a graphic designer living in New York City. By day, I work at a structural engineering firm, and I run Slieberry Designs on the side.  I was encouraged to start my business after a few friends asked me to design their wedding invitations, and then I kept getting referrals.  I’m always working and really enjoy what I do, and Slieberry Designs gives me the opportunity to reach more people and businesses and do more ‘fun’ creative work!

2) How did you learn all about design?
Growing up, I loved being creative, and went on to be a graphic design major at the University of Michigan (Go Blue!).  I learn the most just by playing around on different programs, and also from working off the feedback I get from clients.  The great thing about design is it’s always a learning process and a lot of the best ‘tricks’ I’ve learned are by mistake!

3) What are some of your favorite fonts?
Way too many!… but when it comes down to it, I love clean, no-nonsense lettering like Gotham and Gill Sans.

4) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Paris, to see all the art and architecture (and I hear the food is amazing)!

5) What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough… but I’m more of a frozen yogurt (Pinkberry!) girl.
