what are you dreaming of?

Have you watched Jiro Dreams of Sushi?It's a stark reminder of how differently Eastern and Western cultures view art and discipline.I watched it into the small hours of the morning last night, a time normally reserved for nodding off. But I was riveted by the unflagging passion of Jiro, his sons and apprentices.Am I as relentless in my pursuit of Craft?What are you dreaming of?...

design | the thought process

Book design should be an anachronism by now. What with ebooks and digital distribution, The idea of illustrating and packaging a multi-volume set almost seems pointless.But it's not.This clip is a nice glimpse into the creation of Malcolm Gladwell's box set and a beautiful video, to boot. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqu2NxCD6J4How is this similar to your creative processes? It's very similar to the way we're working with wedding planners and designers to create invitations that represent the best possible first...

neenah papers | the beauty of engraving

 Neenah and Two Paperdolls have partnered to create a campaign reminding us all of the Beauty of Engraving. Watch this gorgeous video by I Do Films.The Beauty of Engraving by I DO Films from Greg on Vimeo. Seems like Neenah, whose Crane Lettra paper makes for great letterpress and engraving, is looking to give engraving a boost on the heels of letterpress' recent popularity. Can't  say I blame them. I don't think we've begun to explore the interesting effects...

words to move you | moon landing

Words can be incredibly moving. It's my job to help clients find incredibly moving words to express the importance of a special occasion.When I read these words, I found myself incredibly moved. So many people have given themselves in the name of exploration and it's easy to forget how unknown the future was for the brave men who first set foot on the moon.IN EVENT OF MOON DISASTER:Fate has ordained that the men who went...

ANNOUNCEMENT | Fly in the Ointment

Have you heard of Kirby Ferguson and his brilliant Everything is a Remix?It's likely that you already knew what Kirby asserts: Our creative output is comprised of the sum of our influences and our perspective (standing on the shoulders of giants and nothing new under the sun kind of stuff). Our creative work reflects what we consume. Maybe that's why so much of the media surrounding weddings seems to look the same. We're all looking at the same...

pass the envelope, please | awards envelopes

I'm blessed to be in the company of some pretty amazing and ridiculously creative people. Many of those amazing friends are ones I've met through our local chapter of the American Advertising Federation. They're an incredible group of people and throw a mean party.Our most recent ADDY (our version of the GRAMMYs or TELLYs) gala was a Clue-style murder mystery at the art museum. We took care of the awards envelopes, carrying the theme and...

high-concept stationery

I'm so impressed with the concept behind these cards from Singapore-based Foreign Policy Design. As I've mentioned before, I strongly believe in applying Jerry Ueslmann's principle of rewarding the careful observer to stationery design. This handmade paper is made from the published works of an arts writer/translator. A fact that's likely lost on most recipients, but serves as a point of pride for the bearer and an opportunity to spark interesting conversation.I've been working on a...

creative spaces

Creatives, take note!If you've met me in person, you probably know that I've been preaching the gospel of shared creative space in Central Florida (more specifically, Lakeland) for quite some time. In order to build a culture of creativity, we need to have spaces designed for serendipity. I've been talking with all sorts of people about ways to do that in my town and help others do it in theirs.I was kicked with a jolt...

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. ...
