Hello! Welcome to our archive!

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 McMahon (Su)

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 Maggio (Su)

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.

Visitors to our Long Island City studio

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.

  • Our friend Natasha Fedorova does great illustration work for us sometimes but more importantly runs Drink With Dog— the best place to look for dog friendly breweries and bars in NYC. Barks and brews, what’s better?
  • Our friend Eli Horne put together an amazing documentary of Snackalong. Who told Eli he gets to be handsome and talented? Check out his Youtube channel.
  • Our friend Keith Holjencin was a wonderful studiomate and a charmer all around. He destroyed Kilian’s music listening stats via our sonos and even though that is unforgivable, check him out.

🎉 Good Time, Fun Times

We endorse these people/things/places/sounds/characters 10,000% and you should check them out.

Keep up with us in other places

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.

Okay, that’s it.

You’re done, this is the bottom… our entire archive to date. Thanks for stopping by, it was very thoughtful of you. We love hearing from folks— please email a hello!
