Rani Simpson

Rani Simpson
Somewhere under a bunch of stationery and coffee cups, you'll find Rani - a 30 something newlywed and new Mom. Rani was born, raised, and currently resides in Toledo. She works full time in Digital Marketing for a local company, focusing on social media and content marketing. Her stationery company, Vividly Rani, provides hand-drawn and designed stickers, washi tape, and more. Going through a quick succession of milestones like starting a business, getting married, and beginning a pregnancy helped her perfect an equally chaotic system to keep it all straight. If she isn't planning or spending time with the love of her life and their daughter, she is catching up on the latest binge-worthy TV or creating something. As a lifelong artist, she does her best to see the beauty in everything and can't wait to spread more of that in Toledo.
