Our Story

Thanks for stopping by! My name is Marianna and I’m the name and face behind the Creativethings Studio :) Growing up in a small town in Italy, Ruvo di Puglia, I spent my teenage years drawing and painting, and falling in love with art.

Since graduating from a Design University, this first love has evolved into a passion for graphic design and animation, and I am so happy to have been able to make this dream my full time job.

When my first son was born in 2012, I quit my daily office job as a project manager and motion graphics designer, and moved with my son and husband from Italy to the UK.

That same year, I launched Creativethings.it, and started creating professional After Effects Templates for editors and animators in the wedding video industry.

 After several years of being immersed in the wedding industry, and being a bride myself, I have learned what it takes – and why it matters – to craft beautiful and unique electronic wedding invitations. I launched Creativethings because I wanted to share my skills and my passion, and to make it easy for every bride to find something extra special and personal for their wedding day.

There are lots of challenges that come along with being an entrepreneur, but I love getting to know my customers, understanding what they want from their bespoke invitations, and providing a top quality, personal service that makes every customer feel special.

The mission of Creativethings is to provide a creative design studio for wedding stationery, electronic invitations and digital correspondence for every element of the celebration – from bridal shower invitations to thank-you cards, and everything in between!

Every bride and every couple is different, so my shop is set up as a graphic design boutique, with semi-custom digital invitation and wedding stationery. Each collection consists of pre-designed templates that you can choose from. I will take care of the design from start to finish and will adapt every element to suit your tastes and personality.

I also understand that some couples know exactly what they want and prefer to be more hands-on when it comes to their wedding communications and stationery. That’s why, as well as made to order invitations, I also offer a self-edit option, where you can instantly edit your invitations from your browser – and even from your tablet or phone – on Corjl.com.

The goal is to make it as easy as possible for every wedding couple to craft fully personalized invitations and wedding stationery that’s perfect for their special day.

Thanks for visiting my shop. I appreciate every one of you!

Xoxo, Marianna
