About Chirps & Cricket
Hello! I'm Abby, owner and designer here at Chirps & Cricket. I am ardently devoted to art and design and work closely with individuals to communicate their unique vision with sincerity and integrity. Whether I am working with business owners to design a logo and produce branding, or working with an engaged couple who are in need of wedding stationery, I work from concept to final product to craft designs that clients can be excited about, proud of, and confident in using.
Chirps & Cricket Design Studio was born out of a necessity to live a creative life. I am passionate about creating, laughing often, and spreading joy through art and design.

A Little Bit About Me
I’m a mid-west girl, born and raised in Ohio/Michigan – and pretty typical of mid-western folks – always ready with a laugh, always ready to have a good time (yikes! the fomo is real), and always ready and willing to meet new people and make new friends. I have a Michigan native husband named Casey, and two cats that we love, Leesi, the grumpy one, and Amelia, the sweet one. I am in love with the west and Colorado and am in constant awe of the Rocky Mountains and all that they have to offer. I love to camp and hike and adventure with friends. Pizza and doughnuts are my favorite foods! Shaking up cocktails is one of my favorite ways to show people a great time. My favorite cocktail, you ask? That’s a tie between a Manhattan and a Last Word. Admittedly, I have an intense fear of diving into dark water. I’ll do it, but it’ll take a shot or two of whiskey first, or some serious peer pressure 😊 I can be seen riding my bike across town almost on a daily basis (if it's not snowing), reading books of all kinds, bobbing my head to hip-hop while I design, practicing Crow Pose, and visiting the DAM to see the latest exhibit!
I married by best friend in 2012!
Hiking in the Canyonlands
A little bit about my education: I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Communications from The Illinois Institute of Art – Chicago, and shortly after, moved to Denver, Colorado to accept a job as a graphic designer in the marketing and advertising department of an international commercial real estate company. I left the company approximately five years later to pursue the opening of Chirps & Cricket, which spawned from a need to create, grow, and challenge myself artistically. I have over fifteen years of experience as a designer.
A little bit about representation: Representation is incredibly important to me. I believe all Black Lives Matter, LOVE IS LOVE, every body is a good body, no human being is illegal, diversity makes us stronger, and that kindness is everything. My pronouns are she/her.
