About chica design

Hola, I'm Angela, a freelance graphic designer and founder of Chica Design, an Atlanta-based design studio that specializes in art and stationery. My love affair with paper began with the design of my own wedding and now it's kind of an obsession. Currently, I'm a mommy to two awesome boys and am fixated with DIY shows, fixer-upper is my jam. My work has been featured in Brooklyn Bride and Design Mom. Check me out at chicadesign.com.
