has been providing professional design to satisfied clients for over 15 years. Even while in high school he was producing designs for a tiny clothing company called Drab Designs which he started with his friend Tim Brown. During that time Andy also published an underground, quarterly BMX and music magazine called
Green Bean Zine. Both of these projects fueled his love for design and there was no looking back. While in college he was heavily influenced by the likes of David Carson, Carlos Segura, Vaughan Oliver, and other designers of the day who were pushing conventions in new directions. After graduating with his degree in graphic design, Andy worked as a designer at several companies before the call to independence was too loud to ignore. He went solo as Sans Serif Design. Then together he and Emily started Glide Design Studio as a part-time venture, and in 2009 Shaping the Page was formed as their full-time design playground. When not pushing pixels Andy enjoys playing with their two children, spinning on his flatland BMX bike, and listening to bands that don’t even exist yet. Life is good!
We can help you turn that Frankenstein you see in the mirror every day, into a Franken-fine!
started drawing at a very early age, and grew up with a love for all things art and reading. You could find her at almost any age with her nose in a book or a pencil, marker, paintbrush, or bottle of “puffy paint” in hand. Emily got her degree in English, and worked as a copyeditor for many years, but never stopped yearning for an artistic release. No wonder she fell for a designer! Nowadays, you can find her chasing their two kids, doodling on grocery lists, decorating cakes, drawing coloring pages, and painting with watercolor. She brings an “organic” eye to the table, and provides the softer design side of Shaping the Page, as she lends her artwork, ideas, and critiques to each project.
