We recently worked with a good friend and amazing artist Elana Gutmann to create an updated website for Make a Better Place, an educational outreach organization that provides arts-based enhancements to community and cultural programs. Grounded in the belief that individuals have the ability to effect positive change, MABP has been helping people from all walks of life communicate their ideas and uncover their unique abilities for over 20 years. MABP has impacted the lives of over 30,000 people around the world.
We recently worked with long time friend and client- Michael Heltzer to launch a website that serves as an overview of the massive number of businesses he has been involved with over the years. Very interesting progression of design, process and vision. And some exciting new ideas in the works!
As a designer, Playboy was my very first big client. I designed many things for them including their annual reports. The brand was everywhere and everything- and the quality of photography, printing and writing could not have been more demanding. I learned so much from that team. Years later Playboy photographers used my various living spaces for location shoots, lots of centerfolds in my bathtub. They could not have been more professional. Years after that - we moved into our current office space and found out it was one of Hef’s first offices.
While working on their annual report during the time they were building their casino business- I was worried about living up to their business expectations. Hefner told me one thing about the decisions I would be making “It is either right or it is wrong- figure it out.” I still rely on that advice today, and it has served me well. Thank you, Mr. Hefner.

Long-time client Michael Heltzer has just launched a beautifully designed line of furniture. Sticking to his strong architectural roots and his love for dogs—he is the force behind Henry Dog Design. Some of it is for dogs, some is for people. But what he did that is so interesting is create a line that marries people and dog furniture—so you no longer have a weird fluffy dog bed in your beautifully designed home.

The new Pritzker Prize Laureate for 2016 is a fascinating architect from Chile. While working with his images for the last few months—we have developed a deep respect for his involvement with social issues and how architecture and the built environment can make a difference in the world (and buildings) we live in.
