Founder of Design to Flourish 

Meet ATX Artist, Kelli

Creative Studio for Austin Weddings

Designer  & Calligrapher

I have loved crafting from a very early age. As a child, I tried everything I could get my hands on: painting by numbers, creating latch-hook rugs, wearing out my spirograph, even calligraphy. It was this innate passion for art led me to pursue my bachelor’s degree in design and merchandising. 

While I ultimately landed in a career in retail operations, I still found myself wanting to create new things and stay inspired. In my free time, I returned to calligraphy. After many hours of practicing, playing around with different styles, cruising Pinterest for inspo, and spilling many, many ink bottles, I successfully taught myself. 

When I attended a few calligraphy workshops hosted by talented calligraphers, my husband joked that this whole calligraphy thing was becoming a *very* expensive hobby. It was the push I needed to turn my creative outlet into a legitimate business. 

Since 2016, I’ve served as a designer, calligrapher, and go-to detail maker for couples throughout the greater Austin area. 

As it turns out, my work was just what Austin couples were looking for. 

to create unique wedding day designs with the highest attention to detail, from the initial design, right down to the final flourishes

But no matter how many weddings I serve, my goal remains the same:

My Story

When I was planning my own wedding, I was stunned by the number of vendors you have to keep in contact with. “Overwhelming” is putting it lightly. 

That’s why I’ve made it my goal is to alleviate this stress by being your one point of contact for all your design details from beginning to end. From Save The Dates to invitations to day-of signage (complete with frames, stands, easels, etc.), I’m here for you for all of the things.

My Commitment to a Different Kind of Experience

Small details for big impact.

I believe wholeheartedly in…

It’s possible to be surprised by the power of a simple font choice. To experience the difference a font/color combination can make. To notice how the smallest details play off one another. 

Maybe it’s the tiniest grommet detail used to hold your place cards to the menu, or the leather detail on your hanging signage, or a beautifully hand-lettered escort card. Wherever details can be found, they matter, and I want to show you their power.

“Kelli is the best! She was so prompt and worked with my crazy design! She even illustrated the cutest map for us. If you want beautiful signage and menus for your guests to keep forever, she is your girl!

Place cards–the material options are endless!

Leather – my calligraphy pen just glides across it.

I've read every book he has published and even went to go see him live.

Yep, self-admitted pop-culture junkie right here.

A black or white tee, jeans, a bold lip, and fresh manicure (that last one - always).

Large scale seating chart displays. These are such great
& useful showstoppers.

My everyday handwriting looks like chicken scratch (not even kidding)!
