Dillon Deskin

Dillon started designing out of necessity. When he was a kid, he made music and discovered that very few artists designed album covers in his community.

Kat Uno

Kat has always had a passion for art. Her earliest memories feature Kat doodling away with her crayons, poring over comic strips and watching cartoons--slack-jawed at how the colorful drawings moved on screen. These days, Kat hopes to nurture the same passion for art in her own children, and already finds it really fulfilling to watch her young daughter creating her own worlds on paper. Kat told Little Dipper that finds inspiration in a variety of sources including comics, cartoons, anime, children’s books as well as modern art and textile designs. She specializes in creating images that bring happiness to others, which is why her designs often features cute and fanciful creatures.
