The Vision

The Greek word, Meraki: doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put “something of yourself” into what you're doing, whatever it may be. 


The Lady Behind the Vision

With The Creative Clique, I wanted to design a life I loved. Be my own boss. Set my own rules. Inspire others.  Be creative. 


Laurie Nicoud

Creative Director + Graphic Designer + Big Margarita Fan

I’m Laurie. I’m the owner/lead designer behind The Creative Clique. I warmly welcome you to my site, and I can’t wait to share all of the fun projects that I’ve been working on lately.  A little bit about me?  I’m a San Diego based Creative Director + Graphic Designer and mom of 3 (including my pup, Diego).  

Currently obsessed with iced coffee, everything Kate Spade, Cadillac margaritas with lots of salt, exploring our sunshine city with my family.

I have been designing for over 10 years, and my love for graphic design all started in high school with my Yearbook class elective. I pursued my passion at the Art Institute, and earned my bachelor of arts in Graphic Design. I eventually landed a job in San Diego as the Creative Director of San Diego Magazine and Exquisite Weddings Magazine, where I designed editorial pages, directed photo shoots, and spearheaded branded projects from start to finish. I’ve always had big dreams of starting my own design studio in San Diego and here we are today…


“It's a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together.”


The Reason

The Creative Clique is my “creative bliss”. Each day I get to work with awesome brands and help them grow and succeed. Through graphic design, we create new friendships, a balanced life we love, and put our creative passions into a tangible products that can inspire others.  We are all working to make the San Diego community an inspiring, supportive, creative hub for growing businesses. I hope you will join us on this journey!
