Lisa Woodard  Calligrapher, Designer

let's break the ice a bit.

I'm a New Zealand raised graphic designer, calligrapher, and event stationer currently residing in California, US with my husband – a VFX artist and Ohio native – who shares in my ongoing struggle of adjusting to life without the Auckland coffee joints we miss so dearly. A collector of typography books and calligraphy nibs, my top five: antique-gold ink, handmade paper, fine paper twine, vintage stamps, and Pol Roger. 

I also take wedding and event stationery very seriously.

With a background in graphic design I’m passionate about hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind event stationery, and absolutely adore creating suites and day-of pieces for excited couples in the throws of planning one of the most memorable days of their lives. Wedding stationery to represent and showcase you as a couple, and paper goods that you can be thrilled to share with your loved ones and family for years to come.

From custom invitations, illustration and spot calligraphy, hand-painted signage and murals to logo-types and large-scale lettering, I would love to discuss ideas for your event or business and work with you to bring your vision to life.
