    Music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I’m grateful to my parents for instilling a love of music within my brother and I at very young ages. As a four-year-old, I can remember Mom always playing records in the house… Elvis, The Beatles, BJ…

  2. 2017… Be Gone With Yosef!

    Date 08 Feb 2018

  3. Coming Full Circle

    Date 20 Oct 2016
    If you’ve seen my About page, then you know that I grew up around fast things…specifically fast cars…and specifically fast cars at the local circle dirt track. While I appreciated all that those fellas poured into their favorite pastime, I was never a big fan. I was just a fan…

  4. Can You Tell Me How to Get…How to Get to Elberon Street?

    Date 13 Sep 2016
    I always present my logo clients with a design brief consisting of 15 or so questions which helps give me an idea of what they are looking for, and it also helps them possibly think of things they hadn’t yet considered. Obviously, the more detailed and in-depth the answers are…

  6. When Things Don’t Go As Planned…In Life and Logos

    Date 02 Aug 2016
    So, last week obviously didn’t start out as I had planned. (This can happen from time-to-time, yeah? Yurp.) So, long-funny-story short, I got my very own ambulance ride to the hospital around 3am last Tuesday morning. (Just a heads up. They’ll take you there when you complain of chest pain…

  7. Summertime Laments & Logos

    Date 27 Jul 2016
    I’m sitting in Barnes & Noble Café with my soon-to-be-5th-grader who is self-entertaining with this month’s edition of Girl’s World while I try to get some work done…i.e. knock out this blog post. This is how a large percentage of our summer days have been spent. (Now that Matty and…

    Date 09 Sep 2015
    I need your help with my logo. I paid [insert your-choice-online-logo-generator-website here] $100 for a logo last year, and I don’t like it. I then paid my cousin’s kid who has a graphics app on her iPad to create a logo for me. I’m still not happy with it. Can…

  10. Sometimes You Just Gotta Doodle. (Errrr…yeah, keeping reading. Hehe.)

    Date 14 May 2015
    I ordered a book last Fall called One Zentangle A Day (Here’s what a zentangle is, incase you aren’t familiar….Zentangle) One zentangle a day was a bit of an overachievement for me, so I made a 2015 goal to do one Zentangle a week. Yeah, I can do that Wrong.…
