The Importance of Illustrations
With Peggy Tarpley, Founder and Stationery Designer at Whodrew
On Stationery and Paper in a Digital-First World
with Peggy Tarpley, Founder and Stationery Designer at Whodrew
For most of us industry professionals, the last few years have been overflowing with change — and change doesn’t even begin to cover everything that today’s guest has accomplished. Meet Peggy Tarpley, Founder and Stationery Designer behind Whodrew. But, that’s not all. Peggy was a pandemic bride, she’s a mom to her sweet little Ruby (who just celebrated her FIRST birthday), and my favorite? She’s a fellow Midwesterner who recently moved back to her hometown of Cincinnati.
When Peggy started Whodrew as a side business, she was working full-time in design for American Eagle. On today’s episode of End of the Night, Peggy shares, “It was a slow growth. But eventually I was like, I can’t be doing corporate during the day and then coming home and doing this all night and on weekends. So, I set out a six month plan for leaving.”
And thank goodness she did, because Peggy’s work is just remarkable.
Whodrew offers custom stationery, wedding invitation suites, custom monograms, and more. And in a time where digital invitations seem to be on the rise, I was curious to hear what Peggy had to say about brides and grooms ditching the paper for something well, digital. So, whether you’re a fellow wedding industry professional, a bride-to-be, or a lover of vintage wallpaper and Taylor Swift, I have a feeling you’ll love this lighthearted, joyful episode.
