Fizz Creative is a collaboration between Katie Major and Jasen Melnick. Together their design work has won numerous awards including
AIGA, HOW magazine, and been featured on the Beauty of Letterpress
Inspired to try something new, they created a specialty line of Ohio merchandise to pay homage to the great state of o-HI-o. Starting small with just a line of glassware they have been adding more designs and products to the line, including Michigan products (Katie is originally from Michigan).
Since the start, our products have been sold in several boutiques and specialty stores all over Ohio and now Michigan! Our products most recently have been featured in the book Design Currency by Jenn & Ken Visocky O'Grady.

Our products are a bit different in that we aren't making each individual item. We work with high quality vendors that
produce our designs and work with us to help make our visions come true. We have really learned everything through trial and error as well as developing excellent excel documents to track our expenses and income. I think that in addition to a minor investment upfront has helped make our product line so successful.
