terry of sassy design has shared a little bit of her story with us....
Hi, everyone! My name is Terry and I’m the designer behind Sassy Designs, Ltd in Cleveland, Ohio. Let me start off by giving a huge Thank You to the ladies behind The Maternal Lens for hosting me!
I started off as a website designer back in 1997. I was intrigued by the web and I wanted to learn how to create my own website. So I did. I read books and tutorials and I taught myself HTML – and everything else I needed to know.
I started Sassy Designs in 2002 after a few years of experience and enough confidence that I could actually make it. I focused on website design but as the years went by I began branching out and doing different types of projects – logo design, print design, and ad design. I even had the opportunity to design the layout and masthead for a local newspaper/tabloid publication
devoted to canines.
After the birth of my son in 2006 I realized that I didn’t quite have the time to devote to large scale website design projects so I focused more on the smaller ones. When my oldest and dearest friend started her own photography business she hired me on the side to design custom business forms for her so she could get her brand in place. Then she asked for my design help in creating custom birth announcements for her clients. That is ultimately what got me started designing card templates.
In June of 2009 I officially re-launched my website and opened up a shop on Etsy (which is now closed). I was nervous to make the leap but I must say it is one of the best decisions I ever made! I now offer a variety of card templates designed around WHCC’s print specifications along with digital papers and other design elements for those photographers that want to create their own. I also take custom orders. So if you’re looking for something specific to coordinate with your existing image just let me know! I’ve designed quite a few custom sets of digital papers to coordinate with existing branding – they make a great addition and accent to websites, blogs, and marketing materials!
"I lam absolutely in love with the color palette she used with this set...and the design is not too busy or crowded. I plan on using these quite frequently, for a number of things; they are so versatile!"
"All of the papers packs are wonderful! The papers are classic, yet fit the modern trends. Just with one pack, you could create something clean and classic or vintage and sassy. The colors and patterns are some of the best I've ever seen and I can't wait to use them! You definitely get a lot of bang for your buck!"
"the modern tone this collection sets is perfect to show off everything from a newborn baby to a newborn engagement and everything in between."
"Sassy design has beautiful products. Their papers and high quality and gorgeous! You really can't go wrong with any of them! I have used them for so many projects already and can't wait to dive into more!"
"I love all of Sassy Designs papers because they are very modern and trendy, mixed with a touch of classic and timeless. The colors are outstandingly vivid, and the patterns bold. But mixed in with each paper pack you will find a more subtle version that coordinates well with the bolder designs."
