A creative dumping ground for issues that interest me personally and professionally, with the thought they may interest you too. Issues such as the business of design, the design of business, the design of objects, design strategy, creative direction, innovation, creativity, thought leadership, observations, as well as recommendations, mid-century modern decorative arts and architecture, and the state of my thinking (and currently the state of my heart).

The Art of Versions: A Making of

Neil Ashby is an incredible designer and his work has inspired me over the years. As former VP Creative Director for the Recording Industry Association of America, Neil’s work is very visible. After a decade at RIAA, he’s gone on to amass a client list which includes nearly every notable recording studio and musician on the planet.

Neil and his friend Matthew Curry (imagefed) have collaborated on a 32-page booklet and package for Thievery Corporation’s CD entitled “Art of Versions” that shows the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a fairy nymph. In developing this project, they collected 100’s of individual illustration “parts,” then mixed those with drawings they’d done by hand.

Broken into 4 categories—Intro, Pieces, Package and Store—
this site gives glimpse into this gorgeous effort.
