Twig & Fig sprouted boldly in 2003. It all started when Suzie McKig and Serge Vigeant longed to reassert their passion for design—this time, together.
After completing a run of ardent studies at Art Center College of Design, Suzie (Twig) launched her own graphic design firm in L.A. focusing on entertainment, fashion, cosmetic and boutique perfumerie clients. All the while, Serge (Fig) headed up a vigorously active product design company in Montreal (yes, he's a native Francophone).
Fate brought them together one day; when Twig ordered a product from Fig's company. Even though 3000 miles apart true love ensued.
Shortly thereafter, Serge joined Suzie's graphic design team and the union initiated big change. They bought their first letterpress machine. Serge learned to print. They moved to the Bay Area for a more inspiring setting in which to do their new work. Romance drove his presses and fueled her designs. Soon after, their first wedding collection came to fruition. As did the praises.
And there you have it. Suzie's gusto for paper and design hitched with Serge's fire for precision and old-world printing blossomed into something entirely fresh. Twig & Fig.
