Celebrating a golden relationship.

June 6, 2016

Black tie or tie-dye? Classic or groovy. Iconic styles. Spy themed colors, patterns, and illustrations that visualize the essence of both James Bond and Austin Powers.

We experienced “partnership mojo” with the folks from Texas Center for the Missing (TCM) as they invited us to design the communications for their fundraising gala: “Super Spy Showdown”.

Texas Center for the Missing is here to serve the community. It’s a local nonprofit, dedicated to bringing hope and healing to the missing and their families through crisis intervention, prevention and community education.

For the design, we incorporated smart, creative and budget friendly print techniques so more of the funds raised would help keep children and loved ones safe, which in the end, won us Gold! The Gold Hermes Creative Award that is, for the TCM Super Spy Showdown Gala Invitation and Save the Date.

Easy and fun. Engaging for James Bond lovers and/or Austin Powers aficionados to choose their spy. From start to finish the communications featured popular movie titles, taglines and quotes.

A very simple angle cut and fold were included in the design of the save the date to introduce both James Bond and Austin Powers.

We’re delighted to share this accomplishment with TCM and look forward to future collaboration. Read more about the success of the gala showdown here.

Let yourself rest

We all get to a point in our crazy busy lives when our senses start to become a little faint. As we’re surrounded nonstop by digital stimulation, we become numb to the outside world and to the inspiration that’s just at the tip of our sight, smell, touch, hearing and taste.

On a trip to Bora Bora and Moorea last year, my husband and I took the opportunity to let go of our digital lives and immerse ourselves in the silence of the wind, the colors of the sea and the warmth of the rays. It was the perfect place to rest, recharge and re-energize.

As designers, we’re constantly connected to our computers. Looking at websites, blogs, and Instagram are nice places to find inspiration, but it’s also important to soak up the artistry that is the world around us. When you stop and take the time to see, touch, taste, hear and smell what’s right in front of you, the inspiration is endless.

Where creativity, expression and intellect collide.

March 18, 2015

What’s a designer to do for inspiration? Take the family to see a Cirque du soleil production, Amaluna! There’s so much to take in like set design, costumes, music, lighting, story line, and of course the talented performers; it’s a creative cornucopia.

Amaluna was not my first Cirque show, however every time I attend, I find myself asking the same questions. What does it take to deliver a Cirque production? Who orchestrates the creative direction? How do the performers perform at such a high level day in and day out? So many moving parts, yet the presentation is seamless, in sync, to us. It’s obvious that not only is a Cirque production visually stunning, it’s beautifully thought-out.

Ironically, we often receive a similar response when we work on client projects. We develop creative directions while looking at each project from a broad perspective. We perform through our execution and production of the ideas, delivering a product that is in sync with the client’s needs and expectations. And yes, we do this day in and day out. Actually, it’s not surprising to see some similarities between a Cirque du soleil production and our process as designers. Our client’s work is beautifully thought-out too.
