Susu is the creative partnership of Kilian & Nathan. Every project we create is a challenge to go all-in completely for the sake of fun; to not stop building until we’re exhausted and grinning ear-to-ear. We focus on getting every detail right, bring joy into the world, and leaving plenty of easter eggs along the way.
P.S. We’re working to get everything up on the site soon enough.
Kilian is from Dublin Ireland. He loves getting absorbed in the details, no matter how small. That could be the etymology of a word he heard in a song lyric, the perfect recreation of a sandwich from a restaurant that he loved but has since gone out of business or doing research to ensure the typeface in a historical project is period accurate. He is currently a Frontend Designer at Kickstarter and was previously at Tito and Úll.
Nathan is from the Bay Area and won’t shut up about it. He likes to create traditions, then continue them forever. Here is a list of his favorite things: outer space, emoji, buddhism, long train rides, photography, and live music.
Previously he was the senior creative lead for the Elizabeth Warren campaign, a creative director at Blue State, the art director for Funny Or Die, and a waiter at Outback Steakhouse.
There is a simple rule: when you visit the studio you get a photo on the wall. These are our spoils to date:
We send a cute little note when we have something great to show you. Our guess is there will be like, 2 a year? Very easy commitment on your end.
These are our people who make great things.
We endorse these people/things/places/sounds/characters 10,000% and you should check them out.
We know you already have more than enough people/places/things/ideas to follow on social media. So trust us when we say: SuSu will never become an influencer. There is no SuSu Flat Tummy Tea and no SuSu Music Festival on an island... I mean hell, I bet we’ll nearly never post. But, when we have a new project to show it will be on social first. SO SMASH DAT FOLLOW BUTTON.
