The face behind the brand.

My name is Courtney, and as I’m from Dayton, Ohio (the Gem City – thus, Gem City Design Co.).

I graduated from Miami University in 2017, and got lucky to find a job right in the heart of downtown Dayton. Since I graduated, I’ve reconnected with old friends, explored new places, and found a love for Dayton that I never knew I had. I’m a lover of art museums, Netflix, and all things food. I love creating and making beautiful things, and graphic design is my medium.

I’ve always been a hopeless romantic and obsessed with all things wedding (thank you TLC & the endless wedding show marathons), so naturally I found my way into designing wedding invitations just for fun. But over the years it has turned into so much more than a hobby, it’s something I’m incredibly passionate about and something I wanted to share with other people. Thus, Gem City Design Co. was created.
