Degaine: [degεn]:

A French Parisian slang word defining someone with style.

Est. 2004. Owned and operated by husband-and-wife creative team, Zane and Olivia DeGaine, and located in northern Colorado (formerly Los Angeles, CA), DeGaine Designs offers graphic design, illustration, and animation services. Zane and Olivia met at The Kubert School where they both studied cartoon and graphic art.

DeGaine Designs has over four decades of combined experience in illustration, graphic design, and animation. Past and present clients range from small start-ups to major television networks and U.S. Senate and Congressional campaigns.

The French slang word ‘degaine’ appeared in Paris in the late ’80s to define a certain style. Being degaine is to create an attitude that stands out of ordinary fashion. It is the translation of your personality into a dress code that echoes the ebb and flow of today’s trends. Degaine is the pursuit of self-expression, a way of living and a philosophy for “confident people” only. It’s not just our name, its our way of life.

Zane DeGaine

Graphic Designer/ Illustrator

Zane started drawing at a very early age influenced by Saturday morning cartoons in the late 80's and early 90's such as The Real Ghostbusters and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as well as comic books. On the rare occasion he isn't working, he enjoys spending time with Olivia and their miniature wiener dog Morty on their ranch in northern Colorado.

Animator/ Illustrator

As evidenced by her style, Olivia's influences for drawing come from 90’s Disney movies, Nicktoons, as well as WB and FOX's Saturday morning cartoons. Olivia loves animals, hiking, and spending time in the great outdoors. In her spare time, Olivia enjoys barbecuing and watching Zane play fetch with Morty on Long Dog Ranch.

Mortis Mortimer
Mortis Mortimer

Lickaholic/ Head of Security

Fetcher of balls, guardian of the front door, taker of naps, and provider of snuggles. Morty's goals in life are pretty simple: eat, sleep, fetch, repeat. He once caught the squirrel but had to let it go. Who let the dogs out? Morty did. He checks his P-Mail a few times a day. His cinematic hero is Zuul. Likes long walks on the ranch and a full bowl of food. Will work for kibble.
