About Alex O'Byrne
In this ever evolving tech industry we are in a continuous state of learning, which is one of the things that attracted me to this field originally. I'm a mostly self-taught web designer and developer. I studied communication design for a year in school, but other than that, I've learned my trade on the job and on my own time.

About Elizabeth Elcoate
Brand Designer, dilettante, vegan.
On a rainy winter’s night almost 5 months ago, my body miraculously pushed out a human.

Twenty-four hours of effort to produce my life’s most important result? Not too shabby for a day’s work.
