About this Vendor

Custom design for your unique vision

We're a husband-and-wife design studio that understands you want beautiful invitations that reflect your personal style. We favor classicism with a contemporary twist, but if your tastes lean more toward robots than roses, punk than peonies, that's great too. We are based in the San Francisco Bay Area and are available to meet you in San Francisco or Oakland.

Samantha and Owen were great to work with. We asked for a simple but classy invitation design, and they sent us a lot of unique ideas for color and layout. They really got what we were looking for, and we were totally happy with the end result.

Samantha and Owen are the best! They listened to my ideas and looked at the Pinterest board I'd created, and then came up with something perfect that embodied what I'd been hoping for but was still totally fresh & different from everything I'd seen. I've received so many... Read More compliments on all of my stationery. It is truly gorgeous. They also helped me to create an adorable illustration of my husband and me that we used on save-the-dates, postage stamps, and other wedding accessories. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Meet The Owner

Samantha and Owen Troy

We met while studying at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and founded Design des Troy in 2006 — the year after we collaborated to design our own wedding invitations. We design custom wedding invitations, identity systems, album covers and more. We also design and hand print our own line of greeting cards, ornaments and art prints. Although we’d describe our sensibilities as modern and clever, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all aesthetic; we work with our clients to tailor design solutions to each project.
