News 2016

You'll find below, a good portion (50+%) of our work, as well as news/reviews on new products.  As you can imagine, some of mandates can be a little personal, or time-frame sensitive, and cannot be displayed at large for the world to see.  (Weddings, product launch, corporate outings/events, etc...). Still, we think we're posting a decent quantity and variety of projects, for you to peek at, and on the same token, enable you to see the type of work we do.  Enjoy!
