lovely visual design

                                  i am not sure i could recycle or throw away this lovely packaging for saxton cider in a world full of store signs that echo such generic terms such as "groceries, cleaners, pharmacy, food, etc." it is refreshing to see products with thoughtful design that tells the tale of the brand.

goodbye to a creative genius

                                       As a visual designer, and someone who has always been chastised for being "outside the norm", today is both a day of sadness and reflection.                               We have lost the creative community's hero. For those that have been told that their ideas and dreams are impossible because they don't follow mainstream ideals, Steve was an inspiration. 

Godspeed Mr. Jobs. Thank you for your incredible creativity, your bravery for fighting against the critics to continue to bring revolutionary products to those that welcomed excellence in innovation and a better way to bring creative ideas to life. You will be truly missed. God bless your family in the days ahead. 

                                             your gentle genius will never be forgotten.

Rue Mag

If you haven't had a chance to curl up with your computer and view an issue of  r u e

            you must find the time to savor each page. As a designer that is a type afficionado, there is nothing that can match a well designed magazine with fascinating content.                                                                       pour a nice cup of warm chamomile tea and position your computer on your lap with your knees bundled up against you and                                           dream through the pages of rue.
