Our experience includes cover to cover art direction and design of magazine prototypes like Shift, (here); and creating ongoing issues for existing magazine brands as well. Designing the premier issue of a magazine involves creating the overall look and feel of the publication; establishing visual depth and branding standards for ongoing issues; designing features and departments; cover formatting and art direction; establishing an annual art budget; and art direction of contributing artists. Valerie Hammond, David Hockney, Alex Grey, and Linda Connor are among the artists reproduced here; Shift is printed on recycled paper using soy inks.
This pop-up book was created for a group exhibition at Gallery Route One. The pages are silhouettes of cloud patterns along the top and occasional negative clouds in between; made from 80# cover and printed on a laser printer. Proceeds from sale of this book donated to the gallery.

Judging a book by its cover is a good thing, trust us. This cover's logotype emerged from the ether, but its inspiration lies in the symbol in the cover photograph. Our catalogue design here, Encountering the Journey, features photographer Judith Lanius' recent work from northeast India. Published by Hidden Leaves, printed in Berkeley by Edition One Books, 10 X 13 inches, 68 pages.
Our capabilities include art direction and design of quality exhibition catalogues for international museum retrospectives, site specific installations and gallery shows. Our cover to cover expertise includes designing jackets and text in full-color with multi-formatted interiors of up to 264 pages; meeting consecutive international design review deadlines; color continuity throughout including on-site press supervision (web and sheetfed runs).
The publishing standards of exacting clients like The Learning Channel and US News & World Report are the foundation of our magazine design work. Having worked within their sizable budgets, the $0 art budget for illustration in IONS (right) was initially, a challenge. Our solution: artwork was selected from artists willing to donate reproductive rights to existing work. This barter resulted in the pairing of resonant work from established art masters (among them: Cy Twombly, David Hockney, Joanne Mattera, Adam Fuss, Dorrit Yacoby, Hossein Valamanesh, Wolfgang Laib, Helen Frankenthaler, James Turrell, Chris Drury, the Starn Twins, and Susan Rothenberg) with editorial themes ranging from lucid dreaming to quantum theory.
Our experience includes corporate, non-profit, individual, and retail branding. Our lengthiest brand stewardship is for Jewelerswerk Galerie. They've commissioned a range of designs over our 26 year collaboration — almost 300 announcements; letterhead package for 3 locations; signage; original website design; ongoing annual site development — to ensure their brand articulation is understood globally.
Here, our catalogue design wraps the bucolic 1880's riverside of Paris around one hundred-seventy-three works by Renoir, Monet, Manet, Sisley, Pissaro, Morisot, and Caillebotte. The impeccably researched catalogue includes a chapter showing xrays of the masterpiece as the mise en scène developed: preliminary group sketches, and preliminary models — who ultimately were uninvited to Luncheon of the Boating Party. Published by the Phillips Collection for their exhibition, "Impressionists on the Seine." Full-color; jacketed clothbound and paperback editions; 10 x 12 inches, 264 pages, printed by Sfera, Milan.
