7 FebMeet the Intern!


Ladies and gents, Cormier Creative is proud to present Rachel: part-time intern, full time mother of her darling 7 year old (a domestic shorthair, Yoshi). She is following in her boss’s footsteps as a second year graphic design student at DAAP. When she isn’t designing, she is either designing or getting in-over-her-head with a DIY project. A die-hard coffeeist and mint green’s biggest fan, this girl is ready to help out on some awesome projects!



16 JanSarah and Sloane’s Wedding

Sarah and Sloane’s wedding invitation design is right up at the top of my list of favorites. And, while the design itself is fabulous, there are several more reasons why this projects rocks. I was given complete creative freedom, in coordination with Rachel Murphy, wedding planner extraordinaire. Together, we decided that a die-cut pocket of sorts would make this invite pretty rad. And, we were right! Special touches like that are always fun.

Another reason why I love this project is because the couple is so great. They chose a super-cool venue, The American Sign Museum, in Cincinnati. If you haven’t checked it out yet, it’s totally worth a visit! The main directive from them right off the bat was to have fun and when that’s the priority, you just can’t go wrong!

And finally, this is my first time designing an invitation for a same-sex couple. And to avoid going off on a tangent about that, I will simply say that Cormier Creative is all for people being happy, people being themselves, people being in love, people who are awesome, people who are real and people living their dream.

Thank you to Sarah Babcock Wedding Photography Studio for the lovely images!

2 JanStudio NT Pilates Logo

If you’re like lots of people, you might have made a New Year’s resolution that included something fitness related. I’m guilty, as usual. In fact, I just got home after re-upping my family’s YMCA membership. So I thought it would be very fitting to post a new logo design that I just created for Studio NT. It’s a home-based pilates studio located in Cincinnati. Nancy, the owner, is just about as nice as clients get and was great to work with. Well, when you mix nice clients and nice designers, you get awesome logos. Check it out! And if you’re up for some Classical Pilates Instruction, may I be the first to recommend Studio NT!




9 JunCity Flea Cincinnati

It’s the second Saturday in June and that can only mean one thing: CITY FLEA! If you live in Cincinnati and you’ve yet to visit the City Flea, you’re really missing out. The good news is you’ll have 3 more chances to catch it this summer at Washington Park! The City Flea is an open market in which creative types, foodies, collectors, etc. sell their goods. It’s kind of a hipster’s playground, but you’ll find all types. The vibe is great complete with a DJ, food booths and really cute dogs. Today, the highlight for me was watching my husband blend his own smoothie via stationary bike at Coffee Emporium. What a sweet idea!

Cormier Creative is a proud supporter of the City Flea! We’ve helped all kinds of creative entrepreneurs and artists with their design needs… like City Flea vendor Nancy Stelzer and her small business Hip Huts. You can check out her project here. Fun fun!
