I recently finished a minimal portfolio site for Adam J. Cohen, glass-blower extraordinare. The above signature-logo was probably the most labor intensive part (and I had nothing to do with it). AJ sat at my desk drawing and re-drawing his signature on my Wacom tablet until he got it juuuust right. But don't think you're going to catch up on all the recent studio haps by going to this site. No sir. The only thing AJ tweets about is My Morning Jacket and his dog, Otis. But that's ok. He has some killer glass. Check it out: adamjcohen.com

Here's a nice re-design where you just sit back and watch it happen. Christy at Bliss Photography in Jacksonville wanted slideshows and that's what we gave her. A nice minimal jQuery gallery that allows you to take in all the beauty without having to bother yr fingers with those tedious mouse clicks. Check it out: blissphotographybychristy.com

I recently designed save-the-dates for my good friends back in Florida Zack & Lindsay. After a dozen+ years they've finally decided to tie the knot. I was very excited to print these on my ancient letterpress that will soon be making a cross-town trip to join me in the home-studio. To inquire about a letterpress gig, give me a jiungle, rob (at) seeddesigngroup.com

Here's a piece marking the (supposed) end of winter here in the frigid North West. The countdown to spring may have officially hit zero, but the lingering dark clouds and creaking knee joints seem to suggest otherwise. But there's sun through the windows in the studio as I type. So that's promising..

We recently re-flunked the Challenger Presents website and built a skeleton that will survive the ages. Challenger Presents is a Bay-area music production company that recently surfaced from their behind-the-scenes position as a financial magic-wand-waver in order to take over the world. With big plans in 2012 and beyond, Challenger is poised to turn heads with innovative live audio-visual conceptions. Check them out:

We are working toward an online store-front. A digital deli of beautiful papered products and stuffed delights! You will Think About Clouds and find the colored world layed out at your feet. Or maybe you'll wander across a stuffed whale. Who knows. We'll keep you posted..

Things are brewing. We all need to focus and stay on task. Here is an exploratory piece in the wee hours of the morning. Anticipating the next step and hoping that everything goes as smoothly as planned. With the holidays spinning decorations in the living rooms of our hilltop neighborhood we have enough to keep us warm. Things like this. The careful arrangement of colors. The hard edges of geometry; the smooth surface of frozen mountaintop ponds.

New Ankaa website with a few streaming tracks. A slow-melting snicker's ice-cream bar and a sunset on fire. Our fingers are crossed, but we know the man moves slow. More in the winter, maybe.

Bliss Photography is just that. A walk through clouds. An evening with smokey records in your dimly lit living room. Through her photos, Christy Pellicer captures a hidden wonderland and does it in such a way that we can't help but dig through the library of our best childhood memories to find a few important artifacts we left behind.

Murals of Portland is a documentary organization bent on cataloging the best murals Portland has to offer. With a grant from the Regional Arts & Culture Council, Paige Prendergast, also owner of Breeze Block gallery, has as her primary focus the collusion of artists, artsy-types and the not-so-artsy types. The site will be a way for people to track down their favorite murals, discover murals they have never met and a way for prospective mural patrons to contact artist that they think will do them right.

Good friends of SDG, Zach and Jay Burnett, launched Bold!Bean Coffee Roasters a few years ago in Jacksonville, FL and quickly got to work caffeinating the entire southeast.
