i'm grecia león
i'm the designer, illustrator, and hand letterer behind the native lion. i love creating unique and beautiful designs that are intertwined with playful and meaningful details.
grecia was the best decision we made having her design our wedding invitations! from the very beginning, she listened to what I had visioned and quickly made it come to life. she exceeded my expectations and was so organized, prompt with communication, and SO fun to work with. i can't say enough how appreciative to have had her and how easy/seamless she made the process for me during the wedding planning months. i did not lift a finger and the process from start to finish was WAY quicker than I would've even been able to do. i will 100% use her for any future projects and so lucky to have worked with her. she's truly the BEST!!!
"your talent is inspiring"
i could not recommend grecia more for all things wedding! not only was she able to create exactly what my vision was for our wedding invitation, but she also helped with many smaller details as well. she was able to beautifully create a seating chart, name cards on leaves, specialty drink signs, dessert bar cards, welcome sign, and directional signs!
grecia truly knows how to listen to someone and make their vision a reality! we have received endless amounts of compliments on the work that she created for our big day. we cannot wait to continue working with grecia in the future!
thank you again for making this process so enjoyable and effortless. your talent is inspiring!
"exceeded our expectations"
my fiancé and i envisioned our wedding invitations reflecting our creativity and serving as a work of art to remember our magical day. the native lion designs exceeded our expectations in bringing our vision to life! from the custom sketch of our vintage and classic wedding venue (la valencia), to the classic elegance of our gold and white accent wedding colors, the design showed the true essence of who we are. i have recommended the native lion designs to all of my friends and family. whether it is wedding invitations, water color artwork, logos, or any creative need, the native lion designs will surpass your expectations! we are forever grateful for the beautiful creation of our dream wedding invitations!
"given us the gift of her talent"
to say that grecia is a talented artist, is truly an understatement. she has surpassed every expectation i’ve had with our family portrait. i don’t have very many family photos of all 4 of us together, but grecia was able to use multiple pictures of each of us and put them all together in one! i am now so blessed to have this beautiful portrait of the whole family (including our fur-baby pup!) to cherish forever. i cannot recommend grecia enough. she is pleasant to work with, so friendly and had truly given us the gift of her talent that we will keep in our family forever.
grecia created such a beautiful christmas card for us. the details were amazing! once family and friends received our card we got so many compliments on the originality of our family christmas card. thank you the native lion for your outstanding work.
"she is a professional and a real gem"
grecia, the creator of the native lion, is so talented! we opened a restaurant a year ago, and she did all the calligraphy and concept for our menus and displays and we could not have been more pleased! her elegant style and creative/current mind is something i would recommend to anyone looking for holiday cards, wedding invites, announcements. she has continued to do remote work for our restaurant group, never ceasing to amaze me by the quality and beauty of her artwork. i would be happy to share some of the work she’s done. she is professional and a real gem!
