Colour Maisch

FIrst of all, with a name like that how could you not be a creative genius.
I was introduced to Colour by a colleague who directed her my way (thankfully) to do some technical drawings for one of her sculptures.  We met over the course of many weeks working out the details to get something together for her fabricators.  I'm unsure of what will become of the master piece we worked on together (it's in a bidding stage that can take months), but over that course of time I was lucky enough to get a little insight into this artists mind.

She's a beautiful person and I adore her work.  Hopefully we will all be hearing and seeing a lot more of this girl.  Check out more of her work on her site here.

Traditional Streak

I've always had a hard time putting my finger on where I fit between traditional and contemporary.  I am constantly excited about new ideas and clean contemporary looks, but I can't help it.  I melt when i see beautifully lived in things as well.  I guess my favorite part about each is how they can compliment and showcase the other.
I have been doing a lot of work on one of THE most traditional projects I have ever been a part of.  It's also a project with the biggest budget I have ever seen.  Sooo, I've been loving so many of the amazing traditional works too.  This article introduced me to someone more on the traditional side, yet with a daring flare for bucking the system as well.
The designer's name is Max Rollitt.

Morning Reads and Looks

This morning I started my surfing with an article I marked to read on T Magazine Blog Timely - Prop Star Kate Dougherty.  She was a stylist on "Moon Rise Kingdom" = instant crush.  Turns out she's as cool as I would have imagined (well, what the article exposes anyway).

I've been thinking about events a lot more lately now that I've been working with Meld (we have a big one coming up in January) and her combination of ideas is as quirky and playful as it gets.  Plus it reminds me of Brooklyn and I always love that.
Once on the Kate Dougherty site some perusing brought me to a link to this photographer.
Les Loups pics are worth a look.  He does a lot of weddings and has a cool editorial look.  Nice to see something new.  I'm not big into having my picture taken, but I think I would be into this guy.  Plus the music he plays on his site is the perfect mix.  I ended up leaving the window open while I continued on my merry way through the internets.

This blog is a Tomboy Style advertisement some times I know, but once again she's found a new girl for me to crush on.  Frances Merril is a lady with a lust worthy resume and a laid back creative style that I would love to get a chance at.  Maybe all of my dream clients are in L.A.??  Her design firm is called Reath.

Meld & City Home Collective

Woot woot!  Have you ever heard of cityhomecollective? It's a local website that's pretty interesting, especially this article.

Ett Hem

I'm an avid Remodelista follower; often find them irritatingly spot on in their aesthetic and posting on this hotel is an epic example of just that.  This hotel makes my heart ache. My dream project would look something like this . . .

What a stroke of luck I had about a year ago when I ran into one of the Meld founders.  Gary was installing an amazing branch installation at a clients house and we hit it off from the get go.  I was there working for another designer, but I was not shy about introducing myself and telling him to contact me if he thought I could help him with his work.  Off and on since then I have been collaborating with him and his partner Kara to get this thing going.  I have high hopes for Meld.  I completely believe in what they stand for and I'm excited to be a part of the party.
Here's a smattering of things we've worked on together over the past few months . . .

Drafting & Rendering

A designer I work for sent me to this site to see these drawings.  This is probably nerd out rendering stuff but I think they're pretty amazing.  I've got a long way to go it looks like.

All your dreams will come true in the far east . . .

Hamptons House

I got looking through a clients old file to find some info for her and it was such a nostalgic experience.  What a magical time in my life - living on my own in nyc, in school, poor, and motivated.  These guys gave me a chance on an amazing job.

Mrs. P Hicks

Once again Lizzie Garret over at Tomboy Style has enlightened me to another very cool producer.  Mrs. P. Hicks produces hand made classic rugged shoes for chicks.  If I was into casually throwing around $325 for custom shoes I would be very tempted by these beauts . . . very

Andrea Paustenbaugh & Nate Silverstein

I was lucky enough to tour the unbelievable studio of these two creatives - Andrea Paustenbaugh & Nate Silverstein - last week.  They recently moved home after 10 years living back and forth between New York and Portland.  I love finding people like this in SLC!  Gives me hope for an exciting creative environment here in my home town.
Unfortunately I didn't bring my phone/camera to get some shots from the studio itself, but here are a few pics from a few of their websites.  Yes, they have a few.

This is the only pic I found that's actually from their studio - it's on their site for their shoe lace rugs
