About Me

I’m Joni, the owner and designer behind the scenes at Cincinnati By Design stationery boutique. With a ‘simplicity’ approach to design, my aesthetic is clean and elegant with a focus on excellent design, fonts and luxurious paper. I love being a part of my clients’ big (and little) celebratory events; I like to think that my passion for great design is evident in everything I create. It’s what makes me happy!

Prior to starting Cincinnati by Design, I worked many years as a graphic designer in a large marketing office. While in that office, I was honored a number of times with regional and statewide Gold and Silver “best graphic design” awards. I bring the same quality that won those awards to my wedding stationary designs.

While I may live in the “best” city in the US, the internet allows me to work with clients across the country—some as far as Los Angeles and Canada as well as international. I decided to “stay small” so that I can focus longer on every detail of every order.  It’s the “WOW FACTOR—my special ingredient—that’s sealed into every piece that goes out my door.

In addition to wedding pieces, I create shower invitations, posters, personal stationery and greeting cards which can be found in gift shops around the Cincinnati area (and plan to start a quirky little tee shirt line in 2015) .

May I add that I am a charter member of the Cincy Gay Weddings Association ( ). If a same sex marriage is in your future I will be very happy to help you with your invitation needs and as well as guide you to vendors in Cincinnati and surrounding areas who support the right to same sex marriage and want to serve you as well.

I’m fortunate to meet the most wonderful couples of Cincinnati and enjoy the daily challenges of custom wedding design. Since starting my own design business in 2013 I’ve never looked back. Instead I look forward to growing Cincinnati By Design in the years to come.  Thank you so much for stopping by.Wedding Invitations Cincinnati Ohio
