We Are the State Of Shapes
Introducing the Crew
Photography & MGMT
Say hello to Dalton, a spirited guy who is inseparable from his two wiener dogs. His first priority is to ensure the people around him are having a good time. Photography is how he flexes the right side of his brain while business strategies consume the left.
In elementary school he asked his mom to purchase candy in bulk so that he could sell it to his classmates and turn a profit. By 23 he owned his first fully fledged business turbo-charging cars, grossing close to a million a year by age 25. In 2008 he started a website business that over the years has grown into the company you see today, The State of Shapes.
Development, Server Admin & Cartography
Michael is a developer enthusiast who knows more than 6 program languages. Even if he doesn’t know a language or feature that the team throws at him he is able to quickly learn and implement.
Illustration & Design
When Chloé’s nose isn’t five inches away from a piece of watercolor paper—with tiny brushes in hand and enthralling audiobooks in ear—you can find her consuming entire bags of goldfish crackers or stretching her overly-tight hamstrings by practicing yoga.
As a youngster she moved every couple of years. She’s lived in Ohio, the Mojave Desert, Washington DC, Okinawa, and on 3 different occasions, Texas.
She has a great appreciation for the art of storytelling. She strives to produce beautifully detailed images that encourage close examination. She hates eggs, static electricity, and being late.
Design & Interaction
Ryan likes listening to loud music on excellent speakers and drinking cold beverages in good company. His hair is rather long, and his jokes are often poorly received.
Ryan is obsessed with how people interact with and experience the (physical and digital) world around them. His designs are clean, typographical, and user-friendly.
He is a designer, a thinker, a sketcher and a problem-solver. But at the end of the day he is just a nerd infatuated with the future.
Design & Interaction
When asked to write a bio about himself, Zac consulted his social networks to inquire what everyone else thought. As it turns out, he’s a great designer, his dog is adorable, and his hair is perfect. Needless to say he gets the whole social media thing. His meticulous attention to detail will either lead to his success or eminent demise.
