Hello, We Are FiftyThree.
It’s been over a year since we launched Paper, and our team has grown to encompass some of the most talented people we have had the pleasure of working with. Our interests and expertise range from jewelry making to banjo playing; Tara, our newest team member, has at least 30 different nicknames and Georg, our CEO, spent part of his childhood helping his family run a castle. We’re painters, mini golfers, animal adopters, globetrotters, inventors, comic book lovers, marathoners and Ultimate players (Aseem is apparently very good). Among us, we even have a licensed Doctor of Metaphysics (You can call him Dr. verdugo.) and Becky brings on natural disasters whenever she travels.
We worked with award-winning photographer Lee Towndrow to create portraits of each team member featuring Lee’s signature paper sculptures, and we think they turned out beautifully. We hope you like them, too.
Check out our new About page, and be sure to say hello!
