Studio Sample album for Capitale, NY

Providing popular venues with a sample from your studio is a very wise idea. One such popular venue is called Capitale in New York city. It’s a stunningly opulent place for high end events that is in an old bank. Danny Weiss asked me to design a studio sample for him so that his name is in front of prospective brides!

The venue wants their unique offerings to shine...

10 years in the making

The cobbler’s kids have no shoes – it has been true until this year at our house.  I’ve been so busy designing albums for clients to design one for our own family. Designing albums for families is one of my most favorite things to do and I’m so excited that we’ve been blessed by Finao to have one to enjoy for years to come. I have already wrote an extensive review all about the Finao nextONE book if you’re interested in learning about the new hybrid album that burst into the market officially this year. This post is to share the inside of the book for fun...

Finao nextONE: hybrid matt+flush

So excited to share with you the latest offering from Finao – the hybrid matt+flush combination album called the Finao nextONE. I’ve been meaning to blog this for a LONG TIME but have been too busy designing to stop but today is that day! Is too good not to share. This is an album that I designed for our own personal enjoyment (this is our own family!) ;D I’m eternally grateful to Finao for the opportunity to explore the workings of this fantastic new album.  I have designed many hybrids before…. the Renaissance Galleria, Leather Craftsmen 8500/7500 and of course the...
