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...

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 way in the industry. She posted a couple pictures from a recent wedding and the image of the couple is incredibly compelling to...

It's possibly you've encountered this quote before. If you have, please don't pass this by, but take two minutes to listen to it once again. It's Ira Glass on taste and the Creative's version of The Dip:How about you? Do you feel like your talents have caught up with your taste?...

skype portraits

I love when people find new ways to tell familiar stories. This great NYT Mag story shares the story of John Clang's reimagining of classic Singaporean family portraits to accommodate for the emigration of younger generations. In these portraits, skype serves as a proxy for proximity, uniting families separated by land and sea. For some reason, I find this particular image incredibly moving. Maybe it's the way that, despite thousands of miles separation, the daughter still manages...
