MUSIC MONDAYS: David Bazan

Music Mondays: because life's better with a soundtrack. I'm the son of a pastor. I grew up playing among the pews of an evangelical church. You may or may not understand how that particular fact colors my feelings toward David Bazan, but let me assure you it paints in...

Pro Tip for Stationers: rotary cutters

If you're using a rotary cutter to slice through anything that's adhesive-backed, there's a good chance the adhesive will gum up your cutter. It happened to me this weekend and wreaked havoc on the project and my hands (not to mention how incredibly unsafe it is). The...

you can’t get one just like the last one

Search traffic is such a mixed bag. Sometimes it completely boggles me the path some of my visitors take to get from that little white box (so full of potential) to my website. Searching for a certain diet company's logo? There's a good chance you'll end up here. Have...

MUSIC MONDAYS: Tiny Desk Concerts

Music Mondays: because life's better with a soundtrack. I. LOVE. Tiny Desk Concerts. It's an NPR thing. I'm pretty sure you'll dig TDC even if you don't dig NPR. The stripped down, short format is a great retreat from the world. I find myself tuning in and checking...

Wedding Planners: Send me your stationery questions!

I know you have questions about custom and hand-made stationery. I'd like to answer them. In the coming weeks, I have a series of articles planned to discuss some of the questions that often arise with my creative partner planners and client couples. I'm wondering...

ART AS INSPIRATION: Henrique Oliveira

I've always been fascinated with artists that consider the exhibition space integral to their work. Henrique Oliveira is one of those artists. I came across this Paris exhibition and am simply stunned.   Bonus for learning the term Gordian Knot! photos by André Morin....

can’t you just email it?

Do you have a lot of free time? Chances are, if you're like most people, the answer is a resounding "NO." Event professionals are busy. Clients are busy. Our children are busy. Get the picture? I've long thought that email was a great way to handle the majority of...

Paper Arts: paper cuttings by Eiko Ojala

I don't know whether to feel better or worse: I recently stumbled on the work of Eiko Ojala, and Estonian artist whose papercuts are otherworldly. I've been toying with the idea of doing a series about all the cool things people are doing with paper and this seemed...

the 3D printing revolution and weddings

I just saw a Fast Co. article about a new benchmark in 3D printing. A company called Pirate 3D has raised funds for the production of a 3D printer that will cost less than $400. This price (and some fine features) represent a giant leap forward in accessibility of...

MUSIC MONDAYS: Thao & The Get Down Stay Down

Music Mondays: because life's better with a soundtrack. Are you hip to Thao and the Get Down Stay Down? You should be. And here they are playing a bunch of Moogs. So stinking cool.

deco patterns

I'm working on an incredible client project that has entailed working up some art deco - inspired patterns. I can't wait to share this project when it's complete. In the meantime, which is your...

last night’s dream

I had an incredible dream last night. Since our most recent little one came along, my changing sleep patterns have lead to some pretty vivid dreams. I'm sure my choices in moving picture entertainment play a role, too. In this one, someone had died. A young girl. I...

MUSIC MONDAYS: race, stereotypes and classical music

Music Mondays: because life’s better with a soundtrack. There's been quite a discussion brewing regarding audience-building in classical music and I'm fascinated by it. It all started with this post by Greg Sandow. Now, I don't know Greg or his work, but it should be...

lest we forget

I think I'm probably as guilty as most (if not a little more so) of romanticizing a past that doesn't always reflect historical reality. Urban farming, straight razors, penny farthings, dressing up to fly...OK. This post isn't (just) about hipsters. Promise.We've seen...

farewell, old friend!

As you may have already read, Google Reader dies tonight. First, a note on RSS: If you consider yourself creative, inspiration should in some way be important to you. Thanks to the magic of the web, inspiration is published virtually non-stop throughout the world. One...

on the importance of data

My friends (my friends who live just one street over) left their house one morning this week to run some errands. After just two and a half hours, they (and their two sweet little ones) returned home to find that someone had (quite literally) broken and entered into...

MUSIC MONDAYS: The Bad Plus

Music Mondays: because life's better with a soundtrack. It's hard for someone like me to answer the asinine inquiry: who's your favorite band? It's not something I can easily narrow down. It's not like asking which cut of the pig I like most (pork belly, my friend) or...

oh, come on!

I am so sick of these doomsday headlines about the end of paper. I came across this from Inc. yesterday. The Era of Business Cards Is Dead For crying out loud. Really? Has "the paper business card" really "lost its significance - and utility?" It certainly hasn't lost...
