Venamour first forayed into the world of wedding papers in 2012, attending to the design needs of dear friends, newly engaged. Officially launching online in 2014 with several collections of semi-custom ephemera, Venamour introduced a novel, design-forward aesthetic into the realm of weddings. Ever since, Venamour has been devoted to the design of celebratory and symbolic communications across media, recently adding everyday paper goods and design partnerships with iconic brands into the mix.
Venamour’s Creative Director, Lisa Hedge, found a love for working with materials that began with an early passion for drawing. A degree in fine arts enabled Lisa to develop her dual interests in studio arts and graphic design concurrently, and she found a penchant for creative image-making somewhere in-between the two disciplines. Prior to starting Venamour, Lisa's professional pursuits involved design and art direction for established brands and innovative startups such as J.Crew, Target, Warby Parker, Harry's, L’Oreal, Estée Lauder, and more through her tenureship at various creative agencies.
Lisa has received recognition for her work in the field of design, receiving Print Magazine's New Visual Artist award in 2012 and the Art Director's Club Young Guns honor in 2013. Venamour has been published in a variety of media including both local and international publications, including a generous profile for Venamour in Gestalten's 2017 book You're Invited, along with interview and features in New York Magazine, Kinfolk Magazine, The Cut, Vogue, GOOP, and others. Alongside Venamour, she is a partner in the branding agency, Ensemble. For each and every professional endeavor, Lisa seeks to bring an intelligent, considered, and artistic sensibility to every creative solution.
We have immense gratitude for our key collaborators over the years, including Scottie Cameron, Vanessa Saba, Shift Lab, and Studio Rodrigo, each of whom have enabled the Venamour vision and enriched it with their unique expertise.
