Well, since you asked Girl Metro, Inc. is really me, Richelle Albrecht, and Spike Albrecht, who is a very small beagle. (I cant say much for his taste in foodstuffs, but his eye for design is impeccable.) I graduated with a degree in Graphic Design, and did the ad agency gig for a few years, where I designed and art directed everything from logos to packaging to giant posters to corporate video, and even a few websites. I learned vast amounts about the world of advertising in those years enough to want out of it asap. So when I began to design invitations on the side for friends who were getting married, it occurred to me that this was the sort of work Id been looking for all along. I was getting to design things for happy occasions, for couples who were not only excited about their event, but were as invested in the design of the pieces as I was. When the dot-com crash came, it seemed the perfect opportunity to start working toward that goal and here we are, almost 5 years later, loving every minute of it. Girl Metro is also honored to be part of About.coms panel of experts, and their only wedding invitation etiquette expert to date. Were located in Chicago, on the north side. If youre in the area and would like to meet in person to discuss an invitation, announcement, or almost anything else, please give us a call at 773.878.4475 or drop us a line and wed love to get together. (Well, Id love to meet you. Spikes a little shy.)
