JayMarc Homes specializes in building custom luxury homes in the cities of Bellevue and Mercer Island, Washington. Their homes are meticulously crafted to take advantage of space, flow and the beautiful Northwest views. Many of their buyers are new to the Northwest and these unique communities, and JayMarc saw firsthand that the stress of buying a new home doesn’t just vanish when a seller hands over the key. They wanted to create a welcome that could help settle the nerves of new buyers and reinforce JayMarc’s commitment to their buyers and community.
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.
What began 10+ years ago as minor design updates and tweaks has since developed into a trusted, ongoing partnership. The historic City Club of San Francisco knows the value of marketing—the club not only survived but thrived during the deepest recession of its 32-year history.
Over the last decade, we have helped to evolve the club’s marketing and print advertising—starting with its website. We designed a site that highlights the beauty and uniqueness of this San Francisco Art Deco gem with a voice to match. And with spectacular interiors, it wasn’t hard to find the right hooks. A refresh to the club’s identity gave us an opportunity to pull beautiful details from the club’s architecture. From there, it had what we call legs.

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.
