About Whimsíque

We believe in a world of limitless possibilities. There’s no concept too wild to explore, no style we can’t master, and no reason why our creativity should be limited to paper. We are Whimsíque — an experiential design studio creating stationery, signage, and more. 

Wishing you could ring in the New Year with all of your clients? Can-do. We’ll mail them miniature champagne cocktails in custom gift boxes. 

Inviting 200 guests to your bar mitzvah? Can-do. We’ll design and build an 8-foot seating chart to be a statement piece.

The way I see it, nothing is impossible. Tell me it can’t be done, and my team and I will prove to you that it can. 

Meet the creative director

I’m Melissa Ward (she/her), the graphic designer and stationer with a can-do attitude. 

"Melissa helped me bring color to my ideas and knew where to steer me when I was having a hard time explaining my vision or changes to a design. All her designs and works are things we will cherish forever and played the GREATEST role in making our wedding uniquely ours!”


"Whimsique was absolutely the right choice for our wedding that was hosted over 3 days,  The watercolor design across all of our stationery showcases the overall colors of our event and was a very classy design. Working with a pro like Melissa makes things so much easier and we received a ton of compliments on our invitation."


"Beyond amazing! Melissa is so talented and her stationery is beyond fabulous! I cannot say enough good things about working with her on my menus, table numbers, my invitations and signage. The invitations set the entire vibe for my whole wedding. She is so talented! I am in awe of her work!"


Since our inception in 2009, we’ve earned a reputation for creating stylish and imaginative designs, a personalized process, and unsurpassed service. Our team may be based in San Diego, California, but we have happy clients from all over the world. Our expertise is varied, too; we’ve worked with paper, foil, wood, leather, silk, and other materials; we’ve applied techniques like engraving, laser cutting, foil printing, and letterpress; and we’ve collaborated on events of every shape and size. But enough about our resumé — the future of Whimsíque is what we’re most excited about.
