About Me

Let me introduce myself…

Howdy! I’m Raye, a born and bred Texan, a Fightin’ Texas Aggie, a graphic design nerd, blogger, and creator of Raye Allison Creations where I design printable wall art and wedding invitation suites. I am hoping this blog becomes a place of learning, encouragement, and inspiration.

My purpose is to shine my light in the world through bright, fun, and encouraging printables for young adults looking for some easy decor options. Through weekly free printables and the printables available in my Etsy shop, Raye Allison Creations is built on a foundation of love, playfulness, and passion.

 

A little about me…

I am originally from North Texas but now live with my husband Ryan in South Texas. Yay humidity (not)! I love way too many TV shows (Shondaland is awesome), movies (I am a hopeless romantic), books (Harry Potter), and all things graphic design. I went to Texas A&M University and earned my bachelor’s degree in Visualization. What’s visualization, you ask? It’s what A&M calls the degree program for computer graphics including graphic design, animation, web design, and game design. It’s also in the College of Architecture. Yeah, it confused me too. Anyway, I focused on graphic design but also gained valuable skills and experience in animation and other sides of the design industry.

About Me

My previous jobs were in book publishing and web design and then circumstances started me in freelancing, but I have really enjoyed it so far. I like the idea of being my own boss and making my own schedule. It also gives me the chance to work on my own designs and ideas which I will share on this blog and my Etsy shop. I post every other Monday (graphic design related) and every Wednesday (Printable Creations) sharing my lettering and design work, graphic design tips and tricks, my love for typography, and fun & nerdy design things.
