Symbolically April Twenty Five is our wedding anniversary. Our little enterprise started out as a need to impress our guests with our combined creative skills at our own wedding. Being two of the toughest customers to please with our extensive backgrounds in graphic design, we knew the cookie-cutter selections that were available to us at that time just won’t work. Picky as we were, we knew we had to go D-I-Y. 200 handmade invitations later, our small business was created. April Twenty Five prides itself on unique, quirky and out-of-box stationery designs that are modern and trendy. We provide direct and personalized service to each of our clients from start to finish.
Amir is April Twenty Five’s Zen Master. He enjoys inventing “new” ideas that can be utilized some way in the business. As a little boy, he spent many days unleashing his creativity constructing action figures from popsicle sticks. He first had dreams of becoming a civil engineer but after he met his first computer, he never looked back. His eyes are his best quality and often come in handy when doing face to face business. When he’s not working, he is often found building something with his hands or reading a book. He is happiest seeing something new come to life and would spend the rest of his life enjoying time with his family and making the world a better place. Amir handles the backbone of April Twenty Five’s business operations, he is the motivator, web designer, marketing strategist, web analytics and social media specialist.
Katrina is April Twenty Five’s Creative Director, the Design Diva. She oversees the creation of every artwork sold by the company. Her background, hailing from Manila, Philippines, gives her a unique perspective that shows in each product. As a young girl she dreamt of having her very own stationery store. When she’s not designing, she is deeply engaged in a TV series marathon or playing Tapped Out on her phone. One of her personal goals is to be able to serve every country across the world. She is happiest when she can travel and discover new things with her husband, Amir. Katrina picks up her inspirations from the most unusual things, be it the classified ads, a bus ticket, neon signs and vintage packaging materials. She can turn the strangest things into an inspired creation! No challenge is too big for her.
