“We’re a couple of misfits
What’s the matter with misfits
That’s where we fit in!”
Hermey and Rudolph, Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer
Maybe it’s because I grew up watching Rudolph every Christmas as a kid, but a long time ago I realized, I’m a misfit. My friends are misfits as well, which means working with us won’t get the same results as everyone else.
Isn’t that what you’re after? Setting yourself apart from the crowd? Who better to do that than misfits?
Most people my age in this field have moved into management. I’m a misfit, as is Catherine Davies, my partner in this as we still like creating things, not directing other people to create.
Technology is a good thing. We use reliable, affordable solutions so we’re not reinventing the wheel with every new job. We keeps things simple so they’re lest likely to break down later.
We look for opportunities to introduce the analogue back into an increasingly digital world, to let your humanity show.
So you can be a misfit too, and get noticed.
Green Man + The Lady
I ran Green Man Design Studio for eight years before I realized something was missing. Some things need a lady’s touch. Enter Miss Davies. She might be on another continent, but we don’t get to choose these things. When something works, you stick with it.
Who we are …
Todd Atteberry. Now based in southern Illinois, I’ve worked in advertising for almost forty years (I started young). I’ve prostituted myself to newspapers, agencies, universities and even directed art at a New York based Fortune 500 company before running, shrieking in terror to the hinterlands to work in an environment that doesn’t suck for a living.
In addition, I’m also a freelance travel photographer/writer, and have somehow managed to become known as an authority on colonial era sleep habits and taverns, as well as Christmas ghost stories.
I also run Wytchery Art with Miss Davies, and my writings on all things creepy can be found at The Wytchery, a.k.a. The Gothic Curiosity Cabinet.
Catherine Davies in Wiltshire, UK, brings a wealth of talent and experience to the studio. Originally a field archaeologist, as well as illustrator and graphic designer, Cate gives the final approval to most of the designs passing through the studio. Part art director and part graphic designer, her innate sense of composition and taste is complemented by an impeccable sense of colour.
Though you’ll likely seldom speak with her when working with us, don’t call her a silent partner. Trust me, she’s anything but silent.
Catherine is also an accomplished photographer, with her images of mysterious and enchanted Britain and beyond appearing on numerous book covers, album covers and greeting cards. She also has the best taste in music of anyone I know.
