Meet The Designers:

Kristen is a partner and designer at Peacock Design & Paperie, LLC. She graduated from West Chester University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (concentration graphic design) and a minor in Art History. She also holds a PA Certification in Art Education for grades K-12, achieved through Albright College.

Kristen's design career began at a local design agency where she spent over 7 years working on packaging design for national name brands including Hershey's, Lowe's, and Bed Bath & Beyond. This is where she & now partner, Amy Moore, had actually first met. As early as 2001, Kristen began creating invitations just as a hobby for family and friends. After receiving a lot of positive feedback on her unique designs, she started Party Girl Invitations, LLC in 2005 as a moonlighting business and it has blossomed into her full time work ever since.

Kristen's talents include expert design skills in typography and logo design, layout, photo-editing, computer illustration, and an eye for detail. She really enjoys the renewed challenge of creating something fresh and unique for each client.

Amy is a partner & designer at Peacock Design & Paperie, LLC. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, (with concentrations in both painting and graphic design), with an Art History minor, from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania.

Since graduating, she has worked steadily as a graphic designer in an advertising agency, a multimedia company, an in-house art department, a marketing firm, and freelancing for a variety of clients and projects. She left a full-time position as an Art Director at a package design agency (where she and Kristen worked together) in 2009 in order to work on Stellar Art and Design, LLC full time. 

Creating watercolor illustrations, corporate identities, all-occasion greeting cards, as well as invitation & event stationery suites (which combine her computer & fine art skills) have been her artistic passions throughout the years. She loves collaborating with clients to create beautifully coordinated, personalized works of art for each of their events.
