MAY THE FOURTH NOT BE WITH YOU.

Let me begin by stating I’m not here to be controversial and I think we can all talk about this like adults. So. The new Star Wars? It was dumb. I could do better.

NOT IN THE FACE! NOT IN THE FACE! Settle down. Thank you. I owe you an explanation on this your people’s sacred holiday.

Lots of people liked this movie. People I respect seemed to like it. I am at a loss. I find this inexplicable. Enjoying the new Star Wars takes the same mental back flips for me as accepting Donald Trump as a statesman. I am dumbstruck with the dumbness of it. There must be something dark and shriveled in my soul. Because, no sir. I did not like. Not one bit.

The Type of Old Broadway

We rarely consciously take notice of the swarm of words and letters on buildings or signage anymore. Yet inextricably linked to how we communicate and nearly invisibly infused into our culture is type design. Take a walk down one of the most famous avenues in the world and see an entire new story told by Author Gabriella Garcia as she treats us to a fascinating and thorough review of 13 miles of type faces along Broadway.

CNY8 : Year of the Sheep Party

Our 8th annual Chinese New Year bash was wooly and wild. Thanks to all that flocked to our studio to partake. This year we finally managed to find the right balance of General Tsao’s chicken to Dragon Punch and didn’t run out of the latter and have to give out the former on the street at 4am.

20:14 CNY Party: Year of the Horse

There was a stampede of fun at our annual Chinese New Year party. Q&A rang in the wood horse with tables full of Chinese take out, Dragon Bite Punch and our customary photo booth. This year marked our sixth CNY party celebrating clients, vendors and friends.

For those of you born in 1954, 1966 or 1978, you share this year with:
Genghis Khan; German Chancellor Angela Merkel; French President Francois Hollande; Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and British Prime Minister David Cameron.

According to Feng Shui practitioner, Lai Hon-fai, the year will be favorable for women and the places they govern. Noted Q&A Principal, Wendy Quesinberry, “The year of the horse sounds awesome.”…

CNY2012: Year of the Dragon Party Portraits

No more General Tsao’s Chicken, please! Other than me OD’ing on Chow Mein, the inscrutable General’s chicken, and Dragon Punch (thanks goes to Charina Pitzel for the recipe: 1 part Bacardi Dragon Berry Rum, 2 parts ginger ale, 1 part unsweetened cranberry juice, add lime wedges) our party was a hit. Thanks to everybody who came. It was great fun.

Below the fold is the gallery of our portrait shots (thanks to Mike Anitas at Vine Studios). We totally expect to see these in the party-poop section in the back of Details magazine.
