Thanks for your kind words, Ryan.



David, your work is inspiring and your executions ingenious. the paper topiaries from the West Elm install (which I had seen in print last year as well) are incredible as well. it's amazing to see what a little creativity and inventiveness can make, no matter what the budget and materials available.


Thanks, Tania. I really appreciate your feedback. You know, the financial problems of the world are certainly not what I desire or wish for, but it has been very interesting to have to think differently and "change the rules of the game."

I guess we like to think of the world as a little art project!!!

Keep commenting, ok?




Oh, this is just stunning. I love fonts too! The banners remind me of a jousting tournament and the votives are out of this world. So clever and right for the occasion.

This is simply fantabulous! Graphic design and typography mixed into an event :D What a way to bring words and typefaces to life!


Thanks, guys!!! I think the MET Opera is going to sell some of the luminaries in their gift shop! It's not something I would have ever thought of, but as soon as they said it, it made total sense to me.

I look forward to finding other opportunities to explore this concept more. Thanks for the great feedback. You guys make me feel like there is more creativity territory to mine here.

Keep your comments comin', ok?




Such incredible use of text. And I am loving the color palette as well. Just found you via Ginny Carter Smallenburg and I look forward to digging into your site.


Thanks, Seth. WELCOME! Glad you found us. Tell me what you think as your peruse "our aisles." :)
