but here’s a little more about us
Christine Toner is a creative director and collaborator with one simple mission: to create visual beauty.
For the last 25 years Christine’s been cultivating this philosophy.
Whether in her career or in her life, she seeks to find the beauty and elegance in everything from a typeface to a tea towel. To leave no stone unturned so that every idea, every product, every element has meaning and relevance. This is her mission.
And as co-founder of TWOCREATIVES—alongside Trish LaPointe—they’ve been successful bringing this vision to the brands of their clients for over 10 years now.
Prior to forming TWOCREATIVES she was founder/creative director of stonington design + paperie, a couture invitation studio. Her invitations have been recognized by the editors of Brides.com, the Connecticut Bride, Stationery Trends and Style Me Pretty. SD+P has also been highlighted and featured in the New York Times, Elegant Bride, Modern Bride, Bridal Guide, Grace Ormonde Wedding Style and Charleston Weddings. Previously, Christine spent a decade in the NYC design world. She was the vice president of marketing for a luxury advertising agency and held key marketing positions within the fields of graphic communications, furniture design and investment banking.
Today she enjoys spending time with her husband, two girlies and their rescue pup learning about all things southern. Flip flops are always optional in their house.

Trish is a true artist: a gifted illustrator, photographer, product designer, to name a few of her multifaceted talents.
As co-founder of TWOCREATIVES, Trish is in charge of creative design, production and programming. With over twenty-five years experience in corporate graphic communications, Trish has been responsible for creating identity programs, packaging, corporate signage, billboards, book covers, magazines, newsletters, advertising and websites. Believe us when we say—anything in need of graphic design and communication, Trish can create it.
This classically trained illustrator loves pulling out her watercolor set whenever possible. And she has the greenest of thumbs you’ve ever seen, giving her plenty of inspiration for her art. You’ll find Trish’s spot illustrations, surface art patterns and prints available for commission or for purchase at her online shop.
When she’s not behind her computer or dabbling with a paintbrush, she’s hanging out with her extended family, her trusted four legged friend and her magical 19th century home in Old Mystic.
