Draw the Line

Every year after spending hours digging out your car — only to realize it’s someone else’s — you threaten to move.

You’re still here.

Don’t you wish you were more like Denise Ann Holmes? The School of the Art Institute of Chicago grad recently ditched the Midwest for the dirty South. Now she’s busy wooing clients with custom-illustrated invites, stationery, place cards, and more from her company, Nisee Made.

Whether you’re into raccoons or rabbits, flowers or trees, Holmes works with each client personally to create just the right aesthetic. Her strategy: Keep it simple, clean, and sweet. If her initial sketches don’t please you (doubtful), she’ll rework them until you’re satisfied.

Holmes prints on recycled paper and does everything from letterpress to digital to screen-printing. 

She’s already a success.

See? Holmes is where the heart is.
