Founded in 2002, 10four Design Group’s mission is to achieve the perfect balance between information and aesthetics. The firm’s two principals, Matt Heximer and Sue Lepard bring a fresh, creative perspective to every project. Specializing in branding, packaging and exhibit design, 10four Design Group helps businesses, both large and small, focus their message.
Matt studied design at The Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design.
Besides holding down the fort, Matt’s great with clients and enjoys designing fonts. His typefaces have been featured in the books Faces on the Edge: Digital Typography, and IndieFonts; A Compendium of Digital Type from Independent Foundries.
Matt likes comic books, apple fritters and minivans. Despite being colour blind and missing half a finger, he can still cobble together a pretty decent logo.
Sue studied design at The Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, where she met Matt. They’re not married, though she often assumes office wife duties like reminding him to eat his lunch, asking him to take his feet off the desk and suggesting what he should buy his lovely real wife for her birthday.
Sue’s strengths include project management and surface design. Her prints and patterns have be sold at Urban Outfitters, Crate&Barrel and Chapters/Indigo.
Sue likes white, interior styling, and playing darts. She may be small, but she’s tenacious and has a big heart.
