Get to Know Lisa
Owner and designer, Lisa McGuire has a love of all things paper. She has been dreaming of a world created with colorful and pretty things from a very young age. After graduating from college with a bachelor’s degree in graphic design and an associates in business, she began running a retail store full of beautiful papers and crafts. Getting to know all the details about how papers made, where to get the good stuff and the practicalities of printing on each type has been instrumental in wedding stationery design.
Crave Design was started while working full time, as many small companies do. After working retail, Lisa continued her education by accepting a job as a graphic designer at a locally owned print shop. You can still find her working there part time amongst all the majestic machines that create her one of kind wedding pieces. She has added to her knowledge of paper by learning the different methods of printing.
When she is not creating or assembling, you can find her at home in Vancouver, Washington. Her sweet family consists of her loving boyfriend Graham, who can often be seen making deliveries for Crave Design and her two adopted pugs. Olive is a three-year-old rescue who spends her days lounging on a heated blanket and getting up mainly to move closer to humans and eat. Manhattan is a seven-year-old, one-eyed rescue, who loves to snuggle but is also full of energy and loves to go on hikes and long runs.
She has a great love of adventure, travel and a quality bourbon.
