Love Your Space

Friday, October 18th, 2013

At the creative agency where I’m a partner and creative director, I’ve had the opportunity to work with the lovely people at Art.com and collaborate with an incredibly talented crew of individuals. Character has been designing, art directing and working with Art.com for a year now, creating their direct mailer and concepting their lifestyle imagery. It’s work I’m very proud of and I’ve been eager to share.

Art.com offers the world’s largest collection of art, including original pieces, limited edition prints, and hand-embellished canvases — art to help you love your space.

{J.Crew} Has it Covered

Friday, January 25th, 2013

As far as apparel mail order catalogs, J.Crew has released some of the most memorable covers. On the top of my list is August ‘09 {upper left}, shot in Monterey, California. Widely romantic, the cover sells more than cashmere sweaters, it sells narrative and a poetic, contemporary look at Americana {Do you suppose she’s reading Faulkner?}. My second favorite must be from March ‘08 {upper right}, shot in Palm Springs at the ever photogenic Kaufmann Glass House by architect Richard Neutra.

While the J.Crew Style Guide from October ‘12 {lower left} features the significantly larger logo, it is utterly devoid of J.Crew products. The Sept ‘11 cover makes my favorites list because, as a former dance student who gave up ballet in my teens, I realize that {not unlike myself} most women  are frustrated ballerinas. The cover image is not so much about the cozy  sweaters worn by women and girls photographed, rather it depicts a common female desire — to be graceful as a ballerina.
