Who am I?

Writer & Designer

DSC_0748-square-small

Hello! I’m a writer and graphic designer based in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Professionally, I’m a wordsmith who loves all things visual. Whether that entails finding the right flow and feel for copy, catching errors while proofreading, or designing an ad, I like the communications side of life. I’m best in a highly collaborative environment, bouncing off ideas with other creative minds, but love to put my head down and become immersed in a project as well.

Unprofessionally, I love my plants and pastries. But I think you already knew that.

You can find me in many fine coffee establishments or libraries around town and once a month, behind the camera and keeping things organized at CreativeMornings GR. Are you interested in wedding invitations or stationery? Check out my paper goods business: Spectacle Design Studio. A few more script fonts and florals, but the same design principles and attention to detail.

Thanks so much for visiting. Use the form below or email me at molly.benningfield@gmail.com if you’d like to get in touch!
