Aaron began his creative media training while still in high school, nerding out in the computer labs during lunch hours and voraciously learning as much design software as possible. He continued his education to proudly drop out of Computer Science at the University of Victoria, and eventually earn an Applied Communication diploma from Camosun College. He napped at his desk at a publishing company for a few months after college, but soon left that to pursue musical endeavours on the road. Unfortunately, Aaron’s bands are only mediocre and don’t pay the bills, so thenumber stretched out its charitable arms and welcomed him to the family in February 2010 as a jack-of-some-trades. Aaron feels like a grown-up now.
As a child, Scott played frequently with Pantone graphic pens on his father’s giant metal drafting table. He got his big break in 1996, when he commissionned himself to produce a series of replica medals for his olympics-themed birthday party. The medals didn’t show up on any ‘blogs’, but may have appeared on a few ‘logs’, because it was an outdoor party. Scott has spent many hours thinking hard about graphic design and visual communication. He’s now designing and developing internet websites, which, for better or for worse, involves a whole lot more than plaster of paris and metallic spraypaint.

Mark recently rejoined the ranks of thenumber creative after spending a year circling the globe as a jetset-hobo. Mark loves making things, learning things, and understanding things. He began his professional life by studying audio engineering and ran a small recording studio for a time before doing a stint in art school and focusing his efforts on graphic design. He has written for a variety of blogs on the subjects of recording, design, business, and productivity and is the author of the Encyclopedia of Home Recording, a reference book for the home recording studio.
