For Vanessa Kreckel, it all started at the kitchen table of her Pennsylvania home over 16 years ago. Unsatisfied with the limitations of invitation designs and the inability to truly represent the client in mass-market stationery, she decided to take matters into her own hands. Using her graphic design expertise, an affective color palette and diverse tactile materials, Vanessa began creating invitation suites that portray real-life love stories. The result was Two Paperdolls, now known as TPD Design House, a pioneering custom design house that foreshadowed the desire for customization across all aspects of the wedding industry. TPD quickly garnered acclaim in national magazines such as BRIDES and Martha Stewart Weddings, as well as design publications including HOW, PRINT and Communications Arts.
Based in a state-of-the-art warehouse in Wayne, Pennsylvania, TPD is a fully integrated graphic design agency and interactive partner with 22 designers and web developers at the helm, bridging unique design with intelligent functionality.
