design | the thought process

No, not that kind. This idea seems so obvious now that I've seen it. Now Uncle Bob can be your reception entertainment, too! All he's got to do is buy these laser-etched wine glasses from Luna & Curious....

a small personal project

I've been meaning to do this project for a few months and finally gathered all the materials and carved out the time to do so this week. I had some leather left over from The Album and the original case I had for this thing was falling apart, so I grabbed a needle and...

a proud brother

I thought I'd begin the week by telling you how proud I am of my sister, Allison, of Tremont & Faye. She's nine years my junior and we only had the next nine under the same roof. I've enjoyed watching her come into her own as an amazing photographer and finding her...

Apparently there's not the same market for Nori that there once was. Umino Hiroyuki decided to do something about that and created this gorgeous laser-engraved seaweed. Some of the patterns look so delicately intricate that I can't imagine making Makizushi with these....

video | the life of Pentagram

I got into this business because of my love for the storytelling. Setting expectations and creating excitement around a wedding or birthday is a huge thrill. I'd be remiss if I said I didn't love the design, though. That's why I love this video of the history of...

the album – our world-domination project

On facebook and twitter, I've mentioned a lot about the project for world-domination I've been working on with Matthew R Photo.  Here it is. It's a wedding album unlike most you've ever seen. It's certainly not for every bride, but it's perfect for some. Far better...

As it turns out, you can judge a book by its cover. A lot of the wedding albums on the market today leave me cold.  Many of them  don't reflect the sacred experiences, a signpost near the beginning of a great journey, that their pages capture. My friend Matt tells...

hipster what?

Have you seen Hipster Branding? It's a neat little tumblr (only 21 posts as of now) that reimagines the logos of well-known companies under the tagline Holding up a mirror to the artsy community. Frankly, a couple of them are pretty uninspired and  derivative (it's...
