Based in Denver, Colorado, Whimsy Design Studio is a boutique graphic design and art studio that specializes in weddings and events. Our passion is collaborating to create custom designs that capture our client’s unique style and wow their guests. Depending on your vision, we use a mix of graphic design, hand lettering, illustration, and painting to craft invitation suites, signage, paper décor, and day-of details to complete the look of any event.
Whimsy grew out of a passion for paper and a simple admiration for the joy of celebrations – big or small. We believe that life should be playful, celebrated, and, yes, whimsical! See past examples of our work in the Paper photo gallery.
MEET MEAGAN, Owner & Lead Designer
Armed with a degree in design from the University of Texas and 10+ years of corporate graphic design experience, I have a passion for all things creative. I was first introduced to the wedding world after numerous friends and family members requested invitation designs and quickly fell in love with the joy of designing for events.
With that joy I opened shop as Whimsy Design Studio in 2014 and have grown beyond just graphic design to incorporate hand lettering, calligraphy, illustration and watercolor into my work.

Simply put, Meagan is a true master of her craft! She was able to take our initial ideas and create an invitation suite that was completely unique and personable-- just what we had envisioned. During the process, Meagan bent over backwards to ensure things went as smoothly as possible. We highly recommend Whimsy Design Studio if you're looking to invest in an awesome designer!
I had the pleasure of working with Meagan for my wedding this September after finding her work through Instagram. She was amazing from the very start and helped me work through some ideas I had and was patient through all of my crazy last minute changes. I am so glad I put that extra touch into our wedding by going with Whimsy Design Studio and my guests commented on how beautiful everything was! Thank you again!
Meagan was such a delight to work with!! Not only did she totally get the concept I was going for, but she added some ideas of her own that were completely amazing !! I can tell Meagan truly enjoys and cares about what she's doing; not only does that translate into the final product, but her positive energy during every meeting was such a great balance to the stress that is wedding planning.
Meagan at Whimsy was amazing to work with for our wedding! I came to her needing my reception paper pieces, calligraphy and signage turned around really quickly and she got me everything I needed on time and looking great! She understood my vision and was also able to offer other ideas that were great ones. She is not only a creative, but also extremely professional and organized, which made it super easy for me!
Meagan is wonderful to work with and her creativity is unparalleled. As a wedding planner I work very hard to make sure I am choosing the best and most professional vendors for my clients, and Meagan has proved to be just that. I will continue working with Meagan for my clients' print materials and would recommend her to anyone who has a special occasion!
Meagan at Whimsy was a joy to work with. She had the most creative, beautiful ideas that fit the theme of our wedding perfectly. I got more compliments on our wedding invitations than I could count. The detail she put into designing my invitations was so impressive, and I was always very pleased! Meagan definitely has a special talent, and if you use her, you won't be disappointed!
Meagan is really the best ever! She made my invitation dreams come true. We worked on a unique one-of a kind design for my destination wedding. I was more than excited with the result. I am also a professional in the wedding industry as an event planner, my first choice was Whimsy and I would recommend her to everyone!
Talking with the designer about our wedding and ourselves got the designer to present us with what is totally us. I couldn't give any higher praise to the company and designer because she literally saved us so much trouble and made us the best invitations we could have ever hoped for.
Absolutely love everything about working with Whimsy! Meagan has it all — incredible design skills, acute professionalism, and spice! She approaches her work with contagious excitement and is great at listening to and adapting to her clients' vision.
Meagan was one of my favorite wedding vendors! Not only did she create exactly what I wanted but she was incredibly flexible and helpful all the way up to the big day! I didn't give Meagan the easiest task, our wedding wasn't very traditional, we wanted a lot of it to be unique and different and Meagan didn't hesitate to take on the task with eager excitement! Her pieces fit into our wedding perfectly! She did it all in short notice and she ran multiple errands for me during crunch time just to make sure I got exactly what I wanted. Seriously, well deserved five stars, you will not regret hiring Meagan!
It would be the WORST mistake of your life if you DIDN'T pick this company!! After searching tirelessly through several different invitation vendors and not finding anything that truly felt like me, I stumbled upon Whimsy Design Studio. All I can say is wow. From the moment that my husband and I had our first conference call with Meagan we knew we had hit the wedding jackpot. Even though we lived in Texas and Meagan is based in Colorado, she was still able to perfectly convey the exact essence of what we wanted with our Save the Dates and invitations without ever even meeting in person!!! She is flawless and a hard worker and will work her hardest to ensure that your wedding invitations are exactly what you dreamed of!
Meagan is absolutely amazing at what she does! I've collaborated with her on multiple projects, weddings, and events and her work is absolutely flawless. It's of the highest quality and unique to the client's needs. If it's paper goods or even just design work, Meagan will work with you until your vision comes to life for your event! Her attention to detail is perfection, I highly recommend her.
I stumbled upon Meagan's website where I found a craft beer styled shoot that I absolutely loved. I just knew Meagan would be able to create something just perfect for us, but I will admit, I was worried about the cost of a custom wedding suite. Now that I have our invitations in hand, I can honestly say that it's the best money we've spent on the wedding (and it was incredibly reasonable considering our suite an original design). Our wedding suite is just perfect all thanks to Meagan. She is incredibly talented, responsive, and easy to work with. I recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding design truly like no other.
My daughter and I wanted her wedding invitation suite to be distinctive and unique. We described our design concept and wedding colors to Meagan with Whimsy Design Studio. She was responsive to our vision and provided draft concepts that we used to mix fonts and graphics, resulting in the perfect suite! The Thank You Notes are especially fabulous – the quality is unmatched! Meagan’s positive energy and enthusiasm are an added bonus – she is a delight to work with!
We were told over and over again by our friends and family that our invites were the most beautiful and unique that people had ever seen--and while we may be biased, we definitely agree! Her work is from the heart, and that is so clear. We are so thankful for her tireless dedication to making sure every piece she created was absolutely perfect for us. She is a master of her craft, and we would most certainly recommend her to anyone looking for something affordable yet totally personal and unique for any type of event. And we love that we were able to support a local small business here in Denver-we had an excellent experience throughout the whole design process.
Meagan helps you to come up with custom and unique invitation ideas catered to your own personality and style. We had many phone calls and emails back and forth and she was available whenever I needed her. She made it so easy. If you have trouble thinking of designs or what you like, you can basically just describe your style and she will come up with a basic design/ draft for you that somehow is exactly what you were thinking. People could not stop talking about how they loved our map and thought it was such a cute design and idea. Meagan will work with you on every level. She is super professional, friendly and reliable. Whimsy design studio is one of the best decisions you could make for your wedding!!
As the mother of the bride, I want to let you know how beautiful and personal the invitations and announcements were for my daughter's wedding! Meagan with Whimsy Design Studio is very talented and creative. You just tell her your theme,colors and what you like, and BAM, there it is! We hardly had to make any changes or additions. The stationery was such a huge weight off of us, knowing Meagan was there to make them so beautiful and memorable. We decided to use the same color theme and graphics, for all the stationary which made it more personal and flowed with the theme of everything. We will definitely use her again in the near future!
Working with Whimsy was great. She listened and understood what we wanted and turned it around in a timely fashion. Our idea was a little on the "different" side, but she totally got it and us!
I cannot speak highly enough of Whimsy Design Studio!I didn’t always know what I wanted during the process but was also exceptionally picky with details, and Meagan was remarkably attentive at letting me see every possibility until I was sure. Her passion made the seemingly overwhelming process a fun one, and she was as invested in the project as I was from start to finish. I have already used Whimsy Design Studio’s services again for a return address stamp and look forward to working with Meagan in the future!
