My career in the stationery industry unwittingly began back in June of 1999. At that time I was attending art school at the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire and took a part time job with Susan Gray’s Give My Regards To organization (now Amy Zaroff Events + Design). My original intention was to work for Susan until I left school and found a job as a photographer. However, during my tenure at GMRT, I took an interest in the stationery and graphic design aspect of the business. My interest quickly turned into a passion and a realization that this is what I wanted for my career. As such, I immersed myself and began learning the fundamentals of the stationery business from talented designers, some of whom possessed 20+ years of industry experience. When Amy Zaroff bought the company in 2004, she further developed the business into a full-blown events and design company that became the platform from which my design career was officially launched. Over the next 8 years, I continued to refine my skills and develop many valuable industry relationships and strategic partnerships. Then finally, in early 2012, I decided to strike out on my own and launch Gretchen Berry Design Co. It is a business built on solid fundamentals and 14 years of travail and unique experiences. It is a true reflection of me and my unwavering passion for design. It is an unique concept that allows me to stand out amongst and apart from other designers.
