Why are you here?
You love to look, you have fine taste, you appreciate precise execution and elegant accidents.
Designers–and designers at heart–crave that their scenery uplift and inspire them in an oft-indescribable way. Say what you like about beauty being subjective; mathematicians and physicists throughout human history have been able to quantify-to an extent-what the human eye perceives as beauty. We are attracted to proportion, color, symmetry, and exactness. We are intrigued when, in the absence of one or more of these laws, tension is created. Its the difference between having your breath taken away, recoiling in disgust, or–worse yet–being rendered utterly indifferent.
Why am I here?
This blog is an extension of my design business, which in short is the business of bringing you beautiful things to admire, drawing crowds to your products and services because they are packaged in a way that is alluring, compelling and sometimes challenging.
I am enamored with the written, visual and oral history of communication. To your average Jane, the art of typography may not even be a blip on their cognitive radar. Yet when a type treatment just WORKS, they are drawn to it for reasons unknown. It exploits the grid. It’s big and boisterous. It is soft and quiet. It is stoic and serious. It speaks their language, or the language they wish to speak.
However, typography is not my only love. I gorge on all types of sexy visuals–fashion, decor, toys, posters, books, furniture–as well as delicious food!
Therefore, consider it my duty to provide you with the visual fantasies you crave. The things you want to yank off the screen and hang on the wall. Scenery you wish you could just paint into your life.
I promise to deliver and not to disappoint. If I fail in this quest, please register with the complaint department below.
