Jessie and Tyler are the design brains behind One Plus One, a Canada based design firm specializing in wedding invitation, letterpress, graphic design and web design. I'm always impressed with their impeccable design aesthetic and ideas. I think their portfolio says a lot about their relationship both working and personal because their ability to work and create such beautiful work together shines through with each piece they produce. You can read more about what they do here and on their blog (or soapbox as they call it)!

Thank you Jessie and Tyler for being a part of My Better Half!

1. Is the eternal optimist.
2. Thinks organically.
3. Popcorn is a staple in her diet.

1. Loves comic books and always has.
2. Is a linear thinker. Spends his life planning how to get from A to B.
3. Will not be satisfied until he sees the world. All of it.

THIER STORY (as told by Jessie and Tyler)
We met while working towards our Graphic Design degrees. Surprise! We shared common friends, and after a mishap involving an exploding Coke can and a sketchbook, became interested in each other. The next 8 years saw us dating, buying an apartment, fixing a house, getting a cat, marrying, traveling to Europe and finally, starting a business.

Our happiness is obtained through simple pleasures. In summer we keep ourselves busy working on our yard, playing baseball, golfing, camping, swimming, fishing, reading, eating cheese, drinking wine, and looking for the perfect antique. We slow it down in our cold Manitoba winters, spending time listening to music, sipping tea, debating design, trying new restaurants, and most importantly, plotting our next adventure. 

Thank you Jessie and Tyler for being a part of My Better Half!
