Our Story

/ˈhɛdərə/

a climbing vine, Hedera helix, having smooth, shiny, evergreen leaves, small, yellowish flowers, and black berries, grown as an ornamental

a fleuron is a typographic element used either as a punctuation mark or as an ornament for typographic compositions. It is also known as the printers' flower, or more formally as the hedera leaf, or simply Hedera

We started Hedera with the philosophy of helping people like ourselves—small-time entrepreneurs with big-time visions. We've always believed in the importance of small business and aim to work closely with them to better understand their needs and goals and to help them get there.

We've been together three years now, and we've seen ourselves working with some amazing small businesses, and some big ones. We've spent time with them in the field, getting to know their customers and finding new ways to innovate their brand. We've worked with artists, juicers, adventurers, athletes, and more, and we're always looking to expand our horizons, as well as yours.

No matter who we work with or where that work brings us, our philosophy will always remain—working with people who are as passionate about their ideas as we are and building relationships upon that passion.
