In April we had the AH-MAZING opportunity to collaborate with DWR (design within reach) in the 6th Annual Modern Phoenix Expo!!! Thanks to Alison King, founder of MoPho, we were introduced to the witty Gabe from DWR. We paired an eclectic mix of mid-century modern furniture from their Scottsdale location along with our 21st century modern HIP photography. IT WAS PERFECT!!! Here are some details we grabbed of the killer booth living room space. The idea behind the collaboration was to create a look that reflected a cozy living space along with some personal artwork. As if it was an actual living room. Cause you know purple nickel ain’t gonna do a boring ‘stand behind your table and hand out brochures’ booth concept. It was really different for the attendees because they could actually walk into our space, sit on the furniture and roam through the pages of our books. Check em’ out…
Funny enough while we were editing through the images we found this shot where we randomly captured our recent client’s ‘David + Elfi‘ who booked us after seeing the space. WOOHOO!!! And Gabe also happend to be in the shot. He’s the one in the light blue button down shirt with a clip board! Ha. Yeah we put him to work collecting info/volunteers to receive a complimentary MOD headshot by yours truly. Actually we didn’t put Gabe to work…he totally offered which was way cool. Thanks dude! We’re gonna post the MOD headshots in a later post so stay tuned.
If you didn’t notice by now the last image are our brand spankin’ new biz cards that we had designed by a good friend of ours Leticia. She helped our vision come to life and you have to see them in person to experience the texture, size and embossing. WE LOVE THEM!!!
We’ll also be posting our 2 sample book designs in a slideshow…coming soon!
Below is our ‘take away’ we created for the MoPho attendees. Specs: 6×9 on glossy finish
These two were a blast to photograph. We first met David + Elfi at the Modern Phoenix Expo a few weeks ago. They LOVED our booth coxy mod living rm display + photography…so we squeezed in a session within that week! WOOHOO! They we’re in town all the way from Canada too. SWEET!!! So we of course had them come to our neck of the woods. Plus we’ve been wanting to photograph a spunky fun couple in this cool historic parking garage in downtown Tucson for quite sometime now. YAY…we all totally worked it out & how could we not? Especially with tons of YUMMY tiltshift lens goodness and perfect sunlight. Check em’ ooooooout…..
We are sooooo HAPPY to finally show off this fabulous photographic collection!!! Back in January we collaborated with another ah-mazing husband + wife team for a two day photography (insert mega-phone & a man with a very deep voice shouting)…EXTRA.VA.GANZA!!! Click…here if you don’t remember our sneak peek blog post & to learn more. Greenray went ‘live’ online last week and we couldn’t be more excited for Read + Amber. ‘But what is greenray?’ you ask!. Oh silly rabbit just a piece of organic eco YUMMY-NESS that makes you wanna just jump for joy. Really!!! When we first heard what this whole-hearted company was about we knew it was going to be a HUGE success! Their amazing concept is to help spread awareness about environmental issues through a bug named ‘Ray’…their ECO-friendly ‘praying mantis’ who appears differently on every shirt design.
So we PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ask you to check out their bitchin’ website @ www.gogreenray.com and see for yourself how dope their branding + graphics + over all environmental friendly vibe is…it’ll melt your mind. Better yet it’ll make you wanna go start gardening! We LOVE when fellow artists incorperate all things green & sustainable within their business and most importantly within their lifestyle. All of greenray’s tees are made of organic cotton, their screenprinters + tailors are within walking distance of their office, and they give back to the community through carbonfund.org & trees for the future. They even have a tree planted every time a shirt is sold!!! WAY COOL!!!
Congrats Read + Amber! We are so happy to have connected with you two and even more to have become your friends.
