As many of our clients know when we’re not working on our clients projects – we are homeschooling our two kids ages 7 and 12. We’re on our 6th year! Wow. A worthy reason for not updating this blog 24/7 ….. 😉 Once a week I take them to a co-op where they do all kinds of amazing enrichment classes – PE, theatre, sign language, art, drawing, knitting, creative lettering, book clubs, duct tape creations, Glee, dance….. whatever you can image – hundreds of kids are exploring their interests in huge ways. My volunteer role is Yearbook Director...

Hany Hosny contacted me to bring a dream of his to life – a documentary book on his photography of the people of Bolivia. He had text content for an introduction and lots of impactful images.

Book design documenting a year in the life of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger

Photojournalist John Decker of Sacramento, CA contacted me to work on a book that told the story of his time with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as official photographer. John documented the Governor’s work not only at the Capitol, but also on the road throughout California, on the campaign trail and other locations internationally. This is such an honor and was really happy to be chosen to work on this project with John. The images really capture both the quiet moments of serious contemplation, as well as the high energy and command of the crowds that surround his entourage, and the...

HappyFish Designs a Samoan Surfing Adventure Story

My first project with photographer Sean Slavin of California was soooooooo fun – when he asked if I would be interested in designing an LC3500 featuring his Samoan Surfing adventure … I said YEEEEEES !!! Send it over NOW! 😀 The really interesting aspect of designing this album was that Sean is not only an incredible photographer (he shoots weddings AND surfing photography), but he is a r e a l l y good writer! He wrote a daily journal style monologue about each day in Samoa. I integrated the text with the photos from the day into a vibrant story that he will have fun sharing...
