  • From screen to magazine

    Making the cover Cincinnati Magazine just released their annual “Best of the City” issue for 2008 (on newsstands now). In it they list 110 of their favorite things around town, from restaurants and shops to services and activities (including kilt rental and clogging lessons.) They not only gave a shout out to Wire & Twine […]

  • The “new” guy

    cuttin it up This is Joel. You may have noticed him modeling some of the new shirts over at the shop. Well maybe not, since I’m always cropping off everyone’s heads. Anyway, Joel has been with us for like a year now, so he’s technically not the new guy, but he is the newest. He […]

  • organizing

    screens stacked in the darkroom Joel (the “new” guy at the studio) has been getting things in order. We’re gearing up for the holidays. No time to type!

  • Notes to the future

    I make the same icons over and over it seems… As we approach our 2nd anniversary at the studio, it’s time to figure out where we’ve been and were we want to go. Part of this process is to think through our personal vision. We started this today. Tom was printing out fun tidbits last […]

One of my November goals is to get with […]

  • factory

    Old factory adjacent to Target and Crossroads in Oakley, no idea what they make (or made) here Crunch week. Outside communication (replies, emails, phonecalls) will be on time delay. Post text, sparse. Current music: Band Of Horses “Is There A Ghost”

  • welcoming October

    It’s hard not to say Boo-yeah Lot’s of good stuff on the work front. Among them, we finally updated the Wire & Twine homepage with the Skeleton “Smart-Tee” pictured above. Tom drew up the bones and the kids around the studio won’t stop wearing them and spelling out the word printed along the hem. If […]
