who we are
Our days often begin with a neighbourhood stroll with our adorable lil’ Scottie, transitioning into coffee and conversation with the afternoons steeped in art, tea, and design. These daily rituals offer the opportunity to muse, discuss and laugh over the expected and unexpected! In our endeavours, we strive to build connections and community through our work. Wherever we go and in whatever we do, we’re weaved together by an artistic vision, one buoyed by the love of family, friends, culture and travel.
MICHAEL MACVEAN Co-Founder | Art Director
Having spent his career in the corporate world as a professional graphic designer with large international companies and smaller local design agencies, Michael’s been fortunate enough to work on a myriad of different projects and brands. All good graphic design requires strong visual problem solving skills with the magic for him found in coming up with that first novel idea. That too is something he loves in his illustration work, offering a particular whimsy in the process. His goal remains connecting people with ideas.
Forged in the heart of inner London, creative thinking was always tantamount to his upbringing and continues to be an anchor throughout his life. From raising a family to working in design, his joy has stayed the course — capturing imagination in an authentic, often humourous way. The name, Londonberrie, itself, is in recognition of his exuberant mother, also a Londoner, who instilled in him a love of learning with a passion for people, culture, and the arts in general.
ALEXANDRA MACVEAN Co-Founder | Creative Director
As a freelance artist and an award winning children’s book illustrator, Alexandra has always loved to inspire others through her art. In the last few years, she has branched off into designing for entrepreneurs nationally and across the pond and is a brand ambassador for both The Manuscript Pen Company in Birmingham, England, and Princeton Brushes in New Jersey. You can often find her hosting workshops for children and adults, introducing her art in a variety of formats.
From over a decade in the business and financial side of State Farm Insurance to representation with a literary and illustration agency, her life has taken many delightful (and unexpected) turns. Through it all, she has learned to overcome life’s obstacles and hold close those still small joys, hoping to imbue them in everything she creates. Londonberrie, for her, is a chance to show others beyond her everyday that dreams really do come true!
