The couch

Have a seat

In order to make room for the silk-screen press, it's time to clear out the back room at the studio.

So the funky old couch we got somehow will have to go. This couch and the accompanying chairs have seen their fair share of shenanigans. Many costume clad folks from the annual Halloween Party have gotten schlooked on that sofa.

It also was a great place for those to pass out.

We had clients recline and eat freshly cut fruit while we give a dog and pony show why no changes make sites launch faster. Of course, after the buzz of that wears off, they usually go back to the office and write an email with minor adjustments.

Goodbye couch. Hello silk-screen.

Dang UPS


I'm officially 'old school' and curmudgeonly. Yet another identity has fallen prey to the swooshification of this new fangled design sensibility. Why is it that logos have to be shiny, or tactile, or 3-D, or have a significant arc in them?

UPS had a perfectly fine logo, a product of Paul Rand, and then someone must've coerced them into believing their brand was no longer purposeful.

Just gimme a cabin in the woods of montana and a typewriter connected to the net and let me live in peace, away from the evolution of the world around me. I want things to be perfect, like they were in the old days. Like they were in the 70's. (tongue planted firmly in cheek)
