Some of our latest work! MissionStaff, a long-standing client, recently had a couple new hires AND remodeled their office — which I was able to go in and photograph. The remodel turned out so amazing. Several years ago, Tim and I rebranded the company and now since the remodel their office reflects their brand and the great culture of the company. Congrats to MissionStaff and thanks to Zoe and Mike for being so much fun to photograph!

For the past two months I have been working on a special little project. I had access to a huge space in town for just a few months and decided that it would be a perfect pop-up shop location just in time for the holidays. My partner and I, brought in goods as well as a curated group of 9+ local designers and collectors. The plan was to have a few open house events that included music, refreshments, ice cream from Zsa’s Gourmet Ice Cream truck and anything else that we thought might be fun and different. Our first open house was a few weeks ago and was a huge success. The events are so fun — if I could, I would have one every week! This Sunday we will be having another party which will include John Scioli, owner and proprietor of John’s Old School New Skool Barber Shop! Yep- you will be able to shop and get a haircut and a shave. Not to mention eat ice cream, listen to music and eat hot waffles.
The shop itself, is full of fun things and the inventory changes constantly! The rotation of items can be exhausting but it’s super fun recreating the space almost every other day. It’s been a crazy ride and I have definitely learned a lot. I love creating a space that inspires and makes people happy, meeting so many new folks, and being inspired by the amazing designers that are part of the shop! Not to mention building a brand that will hopefully continue to grow. Take a look and if you are in Chestnut Hill stop by and see me. To learn more check out the Nomad site, facebook page and twitter. We will at this location until February 12th. Stay tuned!
Last spring we took a trip out to Terrain and came across this amazing wall of silkscreens in one of their many inspiring barns. If you have never been to Terrain, it’s a home & garden center and a cafe. The store is part of the Urban/Anthro brands which basically equals eye candy throughout the entire store.
The wall of silkscreens brings me back to our the days of making t-shirts and posters in our apartment. I am now completely inspired to transform our basement into a studio so we can put all of our old silkscreens to use. Stay tuned.
These photos were taken with my iPhone. I heart my iPhone.
We arrived at the Minneapolis St.Paul Philadelphia International Airport just in time to see the sunrise over the sculpture that was on display. The detailed paper installation had everything from bridges to trains to houses and buildings to machinery with cargo boxes. The only thing missing were the people — which didn’t matter at all because there was so much hustle and bustle going on around in the airport that it seemed like the paper town was also hard at work and getting ready for the day. For more information about the artist and her work check, out her site here. I am a big fan and especially like her Shadow Puppets and her other Works on Paper.
A client of mine, the Challenge Program, located on the banks of the Christina River in Delaware, started off as a boat-building program and evolved into a construction training program for out-of-school youth ages 18–21. It’s an amazing program that produces a lot of impressive works, including their new state-of-the-art green facility (they’re aiming for LEED Gold certification). The new building includes classrooms, offices, conference & shop space, and a computer room — not to mention a green roof, geothermal heat, solar panels and recycled building materials. The trainees have been involved throughout the building process and will be trained as a “green workforce.” Congrats to the Challenge Program and everyone involved for creating such an important program and for your soon-to-be completed headquarters.
