This business has been
thirty-seven years in the making.
We've been partners in crime since 1982, when Katie was born, so it only made sense that we become business partners, too. But here's how we've grown into our skills, respectively, over the past decade. Scroll over the squares at the bottom for selections of our work.
Katie—a veteran of the magazine industry in Canada—has worked at some of the country’s most iconic brands. She began her career at Chatelaine, where she moved up the ranks from editorial assistant to assistant managing editor, then transitioned into special projects at Rogers Publishing, where she contributed to the company’s stable of titles. She then spent three years as managing editor of Today’s Parent, before taking on the editor-in-chiefship of Walmart Live Better, a custom magazine for Walmart Canada, in early 2015. She considers herself a (relatively) funny writer with a penchant for sarcasm, and she can package up content like no other. She’s also known for being a workflow guru and an eagle-eyed proofreader. In her spare time, she chases her daredevil five-year-old who will climb just about anything (we see stunt-double as a future career path for her), and is forever braiding a Barbie's hair or reenacting scenes from Victorious with her eight-year-old. She does a mean Ariana Grande.
Matt most recently finished an 18-month contract with the renowned Stratford Festival, near London, Ontario, where he was responsible for various projects including merchandise, house programs and social media graphics. Prior to Stratford, he worked at the Kitchener Waterloo Art Gallery
(KWAG), where he was the in-house designer and amateur event photographer. Passionate about the creative process, when Matt’s not working in Adobe CC, he’s thinking about Adobe CC; as a result, he has had his personal work selected by the online apparel collective Threadless, been featured in a coffee-table book called Alternative Movie Posters: Art from the Underground, and was hired to create artwork for an indie film called Forev (this project even occupied a billboard in LA!). In his spare time, he lets his eleven- and nine-year-old daughters talk him into trying things that usually involve making really big messes (like spaghetti tacos for dinner or turning Matt into a human water-balloon target).
