About Us

Our two boys sleep through the night, but these labor-of-love design projects are why we don’t. We are constantly inspired by our kids and family to make cool stuff!

Lori is Creative Director of Digital Product at XO Group, parent company of beloved websites The Knot, The Nest and The Bump. She is also an aspiring children’s author-illustrator — check out her work at

When this project started Matthew was a co-founder of The Chopping Block, an award-winning graphic design studio and its evil prodigy, Chop Shop. Today he is Director of Experience Design at Adobe, where his brilliant team is working on Digital Imaging and Photography tools.

Here are some questions lots of people ask us:

Can I hire you to design my party?
Maybe. This is not our full-time gig, but we sure do have fun doing it. We’re happy to chat about the possibilities. We can also work with party planners to create individual custom pieces.

Do you have super cool party templates I can download and print myself?
We do! Check out our lil’ shop on Etsy.

How do you find time to design all this stuff?
After the kids are in bed, we go through lots and lots of Keurig cups. Our favorite flavor is Donut Shop, mmmm…

Are your children really named after typefaces?
Yes, each son has one typeface in his name. By the way, check out Cooper’s writing portfolio at Awesome Kids’ Writing.
