Kelly Smith was born and raised in northern Virginia. After graduating from Northeastern University with a degree in architecture in 2003, she spent several years working for an award-winning architecture and urban design office in Boston. Her combined childhood love of "making things out of the unexpected" and her everyday involvement in the design of contemporary buildings led her to experiment with various materials and textiles, using custom projects for like-minded coworkers as the foundation for etcetera media.

Chris Grimley was born in London and grew up in Toronto. After graduating from Ryerson University with a degree in interior design, he received a masters degree in architecture from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver. Grimley collaborated with Smith on several product designs and has been responsible for the graphic identity of etcetera media. He joined Smith in holy matrimony and as co-owner of etcetera media in 2006.
