I am such a fan of Bella Ink! Founded by designer, Melissa Danaher, Bella Ink is a line of invitations that are stylish, sweet, and have just the right amount of sass! The hand-drawn and painted elements are just gorgeous. I recently chatted with Melissa about some of our favorite topics. Get to know her better below!
What celebrity would you jump at the chance to design a party invitation for?
I would love to design a party invite for Lena Dunham. She grew up in Soho, I think her taste would be really unique and super hip/fun. I love NYC Style.
What inspires your invitation & stationery designs?
Current fashion trends, googling everything vintage, travels, parties, & magazines. I change up my look every season based on current trends with a Bella Ink twist.
Describe your dream party or celebration in 5 words.
Good friends, nighttime island party!
Why did you join the IC Guest Designer program?
I love the IC blog/website, the posts are super fresh and fun! It looks like you all truly love what you do and it shows! I'm grateful to be a part of it!
What song or band do you listen to most while designing?
Depending on my mood... usually a Pandora mix of 80's music....Missing Persons, Berlin, Madonna. I love all of the 80's girl bands.
Melissa is so fun- just like all of her colorful designs! Take a peek at Bella Ink and let me know, do you have a favorite?
