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...

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...

branding | the poor porker

I'm thrilled to share the first of several pieces representing the new brand identity I'm doing for my favorite lifestyle company, The Poor Porker.Owners Jarrid Masse and Robyn Wilson trekked across the United States from LA to Lakeland, Florida to open a beignet stand at the local farmers market less than a year ago.While there are plenty of locals that only know Robyn and Jarrid by their delicious beignets, people across the country know The...

laser-engraved nori

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. You can see more picture of this edible art at RocketNews24. Of course, I love working with laser cutters. If you'd like laser-cut wedding invitations or other stationery, send me a note; I'd love to...

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 Pentagram, a ridiculously cool design firm that celebrates their 40th year in 2012.Tell me: Which was your favorite?...

bright idea | bridesmaid dress quilt

Because even a the most fashionable bridesmaid dress stands a very small chance of making it into a woman's rotation, there's this. For $295, Kathy Carrier of Uncommon Goods will turn your bridesmaid dress(es) into a gorgeous quilt; one that stands a much better chance of getting multiple uses than it would have in its original form. Of course, a wittily written (and well-printed) card telling your bridesmaid she'll never have to feel guilty about not...

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 than anything else available. There are more photos (by my esteemed collaborator) to be seen and words to read on the album's portfolio page. ...
