Allan, who is a graphic designer, and Maia developed the first book My Very Own Name as a team. Their goal was to produce an educational book that would teach young children how to recognize letters and spell their names. After Maia developed the concept and wrote the book, they brainstormed together to develop the characters in the book. Allan found and hired the illustrator, and designed the book, while she wrote the business plan.
They are pleased to say their books have become popular among celebrities including Courteney Cox, Brooke Shields and Jessica Alba.
Their mission is to increase self esteem in children through personalized books that celebrate the uniqueness of each child. The goal of their books is to show each child how absolutely unique and special he or she is, to teach the child how to spell his or her name, and to build vocabulary skills.
