Kristy Sprott entered the publishing arena as a layout artist for Holt, Rinehart and Winston in 1989. She supervised the Electronic Publishing department at Holt for many years and also worked as technical specialist for the Art, Design, and Photo departments before leaving to pursue her own company.

Michele Ruschhaupt began work in publishing part-time in 1987 in data entry at a textbook packager in Norwalk, CT. She then taught herself to lay out books so she could get freelance work from them while moving around the country. As one of the three partners of the Format Group, Michele often works with the same packager two decades later.
