John and Shelley Loter are both former creative directors at Disney Consumer Products. They met while working together, became married and are still working together! With more than 25 years’ experience each, Shelley and John have worked in product design and development, book design and illustration, animation, character design, video game development, comics, graphic design, packaging design and retail/branding development.
Loter Inc. has contributed to the legacy of many of the world’s most beloved characters — Mickey Mouse and friends, Looney Tunes, The Muppets, Harry Potter and more — and continues to do so as an independent creative studio. Loter Inc. has also created original characters for King’s Fish House restaurants, the Disney Channel and other clients.
In 2005, Loter Inc. debuted its first original works — new characters, storylines and themes for merchandise. The Loters have self-produced their own products — apparel, accessories, art prints, books and collectibles.
Through appearances at Comic-Con International and Wonder-Con, Loter Inc. continues to add to its fan base. The Loters hope to expand Loter Inc.’s creative vision and business, focusing on licensing efforts including merchandise, books and entertainment.
