About carly reed walker

I'm Carly, the designer behind Carly Reed Designs, located in Richmond, Virginia. My work is often vintage-inspired, simplistic, and detail-oriented, with a touch of modern whimsy. I'm inspired by the simplest but prettiest things, including beautiful typography and lovely paper.

HI Carly! Thank you for your like and comment on my prism design for the wedding challenge. It's so rewarding to follow your gut on a more edgy design and get a positive response from an artist as prolific as you. You made my day!

Hi Carly! You have some terrific entries in this holiday contest - I especially like Silver and gold. Just wanted to give you an fyi about Home for Christmas, your type looks great, but I think the words are copyrighted. You can find lists of which Christmas songs are free to use on websites like this - https://www.songclearance.com/Christmas Music: Public Domain vs. Copyrighted Works. Or maybe check with Minted to see if it's alright? Best, Kim

Hi Carly! I'm really interested in an intro. to calligraphy class in Old Town, Alexandria. They also have an intro. to letterpress class. If you're also interested, it would be fun to meet and take a class. I know another designer who may also come. Here is the link: http://fifteeneleven.bigcartel.com/category/creative-workshops Cheers!

carly, you're so sweet, and thx so much for the compliment! it's NO worries and we have been in the same boat on a previous challenge (unknowingly also :) and realized quickly that this def has to happen with overlaps as so many people simultaneously brainstorm. just like you we felt better to reach out to the other designer, so know it means a LOT to hear you feel the same accidental OOPS but that it's NO biggie!! we loved yours too, xo!
