I'm Anamarie and I live in Missoula with my husband and two babies, Quinn and Whit.  After working in marketing and the wedding industry, I decided to combine my passion for both and branch out on my own to create the August + Stone Design Company. Though I love being able to use my creativity to make custom event pieces, I get just as much fulfillment from designing logos and laying out business and marketing materials. When it comes to successful design, I've found that the best inspiration is usually out your front door. As someone who lives in Montana, I've been lucky enough to have the Rocky Mountains as my greatest influence. That being said, I never turn down the opportunity to experience new places and cultures and have come to believe that an open mind (and hard work) are a designer's best friend.  Outside of work I enjoy running, traveling, a good book, anything with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, and most importantly, a good laugh.
