PUNKFORCEMAJORA type treatment and effect experiment. The central smashed effect and small background shards were all made of separate vector elements. The Smashed edges are a reworked graphic from the internet which was altered to move it away from the original. The type was slightly re-weighted with various layers / overlays to create the finished  graphic.

Cutters of Cloth logoCutters of Cloth Direction

Cutters of Cloth / ÆSTHETIC HABIT – For this project I worked closely with two highly talented individuals to develop a format and Art Direction for the initial impact of the web identity. The creation of  the logo infuses a hand made and rough cast image reflective of manual work. The profile for the project is to address a direct need for handmade independent fashion / high costume, with a balanced neutral Masculine & Feminine quality to the intended articles, using a mixture of Cloth, Leather, minimal color value and embellishments.

Art Direction, Photography & Print within dramatic scenery will be the main artistic visual driving force.

2009 marked the 90th Anniversary of the establishment of the German design school known as the Bauhaus. Page Magazine, Hamburg, approached WILLOW for an interview on the influence of the Bauhaus on our work. This piece was designed to coincide with the interview, which features in the April issue of Page.

Today I went to infiltrate Karmaloop and masked my appearance as a good will mission. Although the store is based on Newbury Street in Boston, many of the products there are from Brooklyn.

This is only stage one in the confidential business with the Boston Boutique, stay tuned for more information.

Kick starting the blog with my new piece. Essentially, this work was created as a sensory image to convey the balance of stability within a broken structure of complexity and fluidity. Philosophy also. There are a few basic elements used for the framework, the color choice is to reflect a more organic movement without being ’solid’ in aesthetic, and also to continually move the eye around the design. ( above – 1 image & 2 screenshots )

Recently while working on a client project, I was able to spend time with esteemed artist Ali Dowlatshahi.
It was an honor to spend time with him and his family in his private home and studio. His work, career and life are a true inspiration.




I was compelled to purchase a large original piece of his work entitled “Fantasy” which now hangs in my home.


Stay tuned for some big upcoming secret project featuring his work.
