Alan Henderson and Jennifer Tatham consider the Night Owl logo, which features two owls literally out on a limb together, to be a self-portrait of sorts. The name Night Owl comes from the company's roots—Alan and Jennifer actually started the company after moonlighting for friends who needed invitations, logos and letterhead. In 2004, the pair struck out on their own to start their new company creating cards and eco-friendly products. Letting their former daydreams take Night Owl to new heights, the duo's shared passion for craftsmanship and detail led them to take a refreshing one-of-a-kind approach to color, texture and pattern that landed them at the top of the industry. The company's stationery can now be found in over 250 shops across the nation, as well as more than 70 boutiques internationally.
Having grown up surrounded by the rural landscapes of Kentucky and Iowa, Alan and Jennifer share a common childhood fondness for collecting stamps, trading stickers and recycling paper scraps into handmade crafts.
Alan and Jennifer find inspiration in the work of Swedish and American folk artists, as well as the fantastic colors and charming animals of Mother Nature.
As a child, Jennifer loved to collect all things Hello Kitty, and Alan currently enjoys collecting cancelled stamps and sending letters.
