Meet Our Team

Maddy Hague | The Proper Type™
Owner and Lead Designer

I’m a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design (BFA GD ’06) and a certified typography and color theory nerd. I’ve spent 12 years designing for several Fortune 500 retailers, focusing on different areas of brand marketing, and absorbing a ton of knowledge on strategy. I’m also a former professional wedding blogger who has spent years dispensing branding advice to vendor friends, and gained a lot of insight into their needs and concerns. I’m a Native New Yorker transplanted in the Twin Cities Metro Area of Minnesota, where I live with my husband, our two daughters, and three cats.

Shauna Younge | The Proper Type™

I know the difference between “your” and “you’re,” and I’m not afraid to use them. I’m a marketing grad with an eye for engaging copy. I earned my copywriting street cred by crafting clever clauses (and mixing in alliterations) for various lifestyle brands. I’m a former dessert table designer, and my high-end buffets have been featured in Minnesota Bride Magazine, Southern Weddings Magazine, and Nonpareil Magazine. I’ve garnered clicks on 100 Layer Cake, and Martha Stewart’s wedding blog, and even graced the small screen a time or two. I’m happily married and happily Mama while chilling (literally) in the Twin Cities.
