A few years back two designers, from opposite ends of the visual design spectrum, found themselves in the DAAP graduate design program at the University of Cincinnati. Both wanted to advance their design knowledge and were looking for a way to build upon their professional experience. Maren had a background in graphic design (identity/branding, packaging, print, and environmental graphics) and Doug had a background in digital design (interaction, web, motion, and narrative design). After a few chance meetings in the graduate space, Maren and Doug started discussing opportunities to collaborate. Shortly there after, the perfect design match was made and plans to take over the world commenced (the design world). To this day, the balance of traditional aesthetics and technological digital advances are the core of Paperplane's methodologies. If you're ever in the studio, you might overhear the occasional reminder to consider typographic nuances (Maren) or commentary regarding the prevalence/importance of web and social media (Doug).
