About
After many years behind the scenes of culturally significant projects and brands, I've put this site together in some ways by request and also as an adventure into more personal and direct conversation to make the ordinary extraordinary and the extraordinary understood.

Levi's® x Opening Ceremony launch

It was a packed night at the Levi's Store Union Square on Friday, it seemed as if the whole creative community of San Francisco was there to see the launch of the Levi's x Opening Ceremony collection. For some reason yet to be explained to me It's a rare moment to have people from fashion, product, graphic, furniture design under one roof in this city. Thanks to Levi's for hosting and Opening Ceremony for flying in and for my partner in crime Lindsey Shook for doing such an amazing job.

Everything in Union Square was corduroy for a moment

The leader of the pack, Miss Lindsey

The campaign is in celebration of the launch of the collaboration between the iconic Levi’s® brand and hyper cool Opening Ceremony.

Dear Andy

There are I guess a few clients who take the work seriously and trust their creatives. This from Mick Jagger to Andy Warhol in 1969 must be one of the best examples. I especially love the last paragraph.

A Tool to Deceive and Slaughter (2009) - Caleb Larsen

 

In what seems to be the most creative and compelling ways, Caleb Larsen (who's website suggests is currently sunning himself in Tulum) is exploring the myriad of ways in which we and culture construct and apply value to the things in our world and thereby the world itself. A Tool to Deceive and Slaughter pictured here is from last year, a device which creates it's own ebay auction and once purchased begins the process ad infinitum.
