Fearless Leader

Vanessa’s the visionary and brains behind our operation. Inspired by textiles, nature, architecture and all things vintage, she is passionate about the art of storytelling for clients’ events as well as branding for incredible businesses. Vanessa started TPD Design House as a hobby over 12 years ago, creating unique custom invitations for friends and family until she took a giant leap of faith to start a business of her own. Vanessa’s custom invitation business became a sensation in the design world, attracting clients from all over the world to our award winning suburban Philadelphia firm in search of impeccable design and letterpress goodness.

Ambitious Mama

Vanessa's always had a keen eye for design, as seen in her incredible collection of vintage furniture, her Pinterest account and even her chic boot collection! She spends her down time traveling and dreaming up new ideas, but mostly chases after her dogs Cramer (the Basset Hound rescue) and Josie (the giant blue Great Dane).
