I think it was Amy Phoeler's creative studio owning twin sister that said "I'm not like a regular designer....I'm a cool designer." Totally accurate quote. That's the thing at Tobyrose Designs, though. I believe there is a place for wit and fun in every corner of the graphic design and wedding world, and I have made it a practice of mine to infuse the two at every turn.
with a personality-infused twist
I'm Ali, your friendly neighborhood visual artist, and the flourishing hand behind Tobyrose Designs. Currently residing in sunny Los Angeles, California, I am an old soul who has a borderline unhealthy obsession with my pup Jethro. While I am not surprised that my path eventually lead me to graphic design, I started out trekking down a different road. After graduating with a degree in Dance Pedagogy, I took my dancing feet to New York City, and eventually LA. Even throughout some pretty rad gigs and experiences, I always found myself itching to do more choreography with my hands, so to speak! Throughout my entire life, I was always influenced by my mother, a stellar graphic artist herself, and once my eyes stumbled upon the art of calligraphy, I fell head over heels (dancers are the clumsiest people, it’s a fact). Thus, Tobyrose Designs was born.
and I don't plan on ever looking back. After a few years mainly focusing on wedding stationary and custom artwork, I stumbled again (see, I wasn't joking...the clumsiness is a pandemic in my day to day life) into the incredible land of web design and branding. I dove in head first, and emerged with a crazy passionate love for website building and creation, and a complete adoration of brand building and logo design. It all comes back to the concept of visual storytelling...I live it, I breath it, and now, I tell other people's stories through the eye of a designer.

Ali was beyond amazing. The quality of her work for my wedding on the invitations, signs, and cake topper were better than I could have every imagined! Plus she was early for every deadline which blew my mind because I had a big wedding! Planning for a bride is stressful and it was so nice to never have to worry about her!
I'm In love!
"There is no other way to say it:
Once we launched the custom site, HOLY CRAP! As someone who isn’t selling physical or digital goods, drawing website traffic isn’t the easiest thing to do. The amount of traffic I get on my custom website blows my previous analytics out of the water! I know that I will “wow” anyone that visits my site, and as we all know, first impressions matter!
