Hello! I’m Samone. I am a graphic designer and stationer who combines my love of art and illustration with good typography and beautiful fonts. I’ve been making wedding stationery ‘from scratch’ for more than 10 years now, and I love to hand paint pretty watercolour illustrations, create hand lettered type, and use classic and contemporary fonts to create beautiful, stylish, elegant stationery for your big day that speaks volumes about you.

Creative Distinction is a boutique stationary studio founded in 2009 by designer Naomi Cavanagh. 
Today Creative Distinction is a leading stationary studio with a small team of dedicated stationary specialists who take joy in bringing beautiful designs to their clients for weddings, special events and beyond.
Being the only studio in The Yarra Valley/Melbourne offering full real wood invite sets, Naomi and her team don't do things by halves. Creative Distinction is built on the belief that your invite creates a vision for your event long before the cake is served and the champagne popped.
"I absolutely love the design process and despite having our gorgeous range of ready made invitations on offer, I truly find joy in creating custom bespoke designs for clients.  Naturally I love paper, distinct fonts, anything tactile and beautiful, hence my love of our wood range and the added features we provide with every design like ribbons and belly wraps."
Creative Distinction is based in The Yarra Valley, yet has clients Australia wide.  Their collection of stunning stationary includes wood, letterpress, white ink print and foil press print. Additionally, Creative Distinction offers everything you need to add beautiful touches to your event, including Reception Items, Finger Trees, and Favours.

A Tactile Perception creates unique wedding stationery, for those who are looking for something a little different.  My signature range of origami-inspired invitations offers original folded designs where your details are revealed when your guests unfold them.  Alternatively, choose from invitations printed on handmade cotton paper, or invitations printed in different shapes.  

You can choose a ready-made or custom design, and I also offer many options to customise your suite so it’s perfectly yours, including individual guest names, envelope liners, and all your on-the-day stationery.

Try something unique, with an invitation that will surprise your guests and exceed your expectations.
