Liz Scott is a creative consultant and entrepreneur
born, raised and residing in Akron, Ohio. Her areas of expertise include brand development, retail + wholesale strategy and graphic design.
Liz started her career in 2004, when she founded Immix Studio, her corporate graphic design company, where she would work with some of the area’s favorite institutions, like Swensons, Don Drumm Studios & Gallery, Acme Fresh Market, The Ohio State University and the Cleveland Clinic. That same year she also co-founded Rubber City Clothing.
In 2009, when Liz became the go-to for her friends’ wedding invitations, she developed Lovely Somethings, which would consecutively win her Best Wedding Invitations awards. By 2014, her love for all things paper would lead to the brand’s award winning brick-and-mortar storefront, located in Bath, Ohio.
After celebrating 5 years of success and stunning paper, Liz shuttered the Lovely Somethings storefront in December 2019. Then ya know, the pandemic, which Liz read as a sign for more change, retiring from the wedding industry and closing the Immix chapter in late 2020. Gratefully, the community that formed between the pink walls of the shop has continued to live on through Troop Lovely Somethings.
Now, it’s time for a new chapter. Liz Scott Design(s) encompasses all the values and creativity that have made Liz’s previous businesses so impactful in her community. Through intentional designs and purposeful messaging, LSD is committed to maintaining authenticity when it comes to branding and business strategy. As someone who has created and refined many brands, Liz knows the most important part of being successful is creating something that effortlessly represents you.
When Liz isn’t meeting with clients or planning her next endeavor, you can find her pouring candles with her husband, Blair, for his company, Akron Candle Company, scouting out the best restaurants in the country and snuggling with her dogs, Quinn and Piper (and sometimes Neo, the cat, too).
🎉 This little nugget is 9 today 🎉 Happy Birthday #themightyquinn 🥳 Cheers to 9 years of cowering in the corner as your Dad cheers on the @cavs; the cutest darn puppy; through COVID hair; and the resulting awful trip the groomers; being bigger than your best friend for a couple of months; and always snuggling with her; and your grandma; and being so stinking cute that we love you and your anxious antics more each day. My buddy 💗
It’s been quite a past week-ish. I’ve been doing lots of reflecting too, as the curveballs came at me. This photo while the reason for its gathering is so sad, makes me also so very happy. My Aunt Layla, that lives in New Orleans; and cousins Bert and Dan, whom I can never seem to keep track of; are all in Ireland together and dressed up to make their sister/mom/my aunt smile. And that effect warms me here in the states, too…plus it makes me chuckle and remember where my wackily creative side comes from.
What a night! Before Lizzo, we had a sensational time in the backyard of @actinoliterestaurant, here in #Toronto. There are two central fire pits with tables surrounding them, under tin roofs. There was an outdoor kitchen at the back where you could see them grilling away, but as you will see, not your average grilled items.
* Course 1 : Mussels and grilled peppers with dehydrated tomatoes.
* Course 2 “Bread Service” : Leek and Potato Velouté with Chicken Confit, plus stellar sourdough, yeast butter and insanely good salumi.
* Course 3 : (My Fave) Beef Tartare with sliced Cornichons, diced radishes and chives with a bit of garlic aioli at the bottom.
* Course 4 : Autumn Salad of grilled greens, Pumpkin Seeds, dehydrated Plums and more that I can’t remember.
* Course 5 : The leg of lamb we saw them caring for all night, with the most perfect roasted potato under that bed of grilled Brussels Sprouts Top Leaves (didn’t know that was a thing, the single leaf at the top of the Brussels stalk) plus the most perfect Leeks. They were charred and then they removed the central part of them, the hearts, for one of the best tastes in the world.
* Course 6 : Roasted Plums and Rosemary Tart, sitting on a perfect pastry shell and Mascarpone.
* And for a little treat while paying the bill, a Juniper Marshmallow to roast over the fire.
Bravo, chef and team 👏

🌟 Cheers to 9 Years (yesterday) 🌟 I remember making sure our wedding invitations and vows said something about ‘adventures’ and what an adventure the past 11 years together have been. I’m so glad we take an annual adventure on this weekend (follow along in stories). There’s no one I’d rather spend all of the minutes with, even when they are filled with your smooth jazz, nerd podcasts and endless Marvel movies/shows, my bug 🐛💗.
Weekly IG captures - 7. No witty caption because I now have Prince’s 7 song swirling around in my head, look up the lyrics and it will happen to you too…you’re welcome. #inspirationeverywhere
Fun fact: I don’t like to take baths. They creep me out if I’m honest and I can’t sit still. But they are beautiful - though in the last one I’m mostly drooling over the chair.
When you beg your sisters for help to do a surprise office remodel for your hubs, you must bribe with the best: Brunch Board from @waxedcrescent featuring @sweetmarysbakery bagels. Note we dove into it before I could capture its true beauty. #charcuterieboard #bagels #thisisakron
I love it when all of my worlds collide ✨ And I love making magic with @broadlawnfarm ✨ And I can’t wait to see what Beth does with this insanely beautiful sage cotton ribbon from Italy via @studiocartashop ✨ And you may remember we carried Angela’s beautiful ribbons at #LovelySomethings but this is the first but certainly not the last custom order with her 🇮🇹💗✂️ #LetLizHelp
*MAJOR DISCOVERY* Did you know that @swensonsdrivein has a Doggie Menu? Their grandma wanted to spoil them with their first burger, and the wonderful runner said a “Doggie Burger” and all of our ears perked up! They also shared a Doggie Water (shorter & wider cup with crushed ice too) but we skipped the Doggie Sundae.
