So we are sitting here in Seattle and Trever all the sudden pipes up and says that he found his photo on a popular photography website that features big names in the business. Of course he was nonchalant about it, but we were all very excited. Here is the link FWA PHOTO. Good job Trev.
Hi there. Its been an incredibly busy few months, full of projects, deadlines, but also loaded with inspiration, development and a refreshing new burst of creativity. I hadn't done much design outside of projects I had to do for class or minor jobs scattered here and there, so when I began designing full time it was like a bus ran me over robbing me of all creative ability. Its actually quite funny looking at my first projects and comparing them to my current ones. All this to say that there is something wonderful that happens when you let go of fear and comfort and just go for something uncharted and raw. So a challenge to all who read this thing, whatever you do, be courageous, push the norm and see what happens. This is an amazing video by a great designer that has some interesting words.
Well, I figured 5 months was a good enough blog break. Here are some screen shots of the latest issue of MOTION. I am branching out and trying to adapt some hand drawn elements into my designs. So I took two of my sketches, scanned them and dropped them into the layout. I like how they turned out. what do you think? You can click on them to see more detail.
I moved into a house a few weeks ago. These are my new roommates. I like them. Dave is trying sell a bike on craigslist and he didn't have a camera, so he went and bought a disposable. We used the rest of the shots to document the beginning of some good times.
P.S. Dave was upset that none of these would work for his eHarmony profile...I beg to differ. Ladies he's available.
I have a great job. I work with great people, in a cool environment, and am able to be part of some really powerful things that God is doing. One of the things I got to do last week was take photos for our monthly print piece called Motion. Motion is a collection of stories from people who attend or used to attend ROCKHARBOR. Our hope with Motion is to communicate what God is doing in the lives of our church. Its a really great thing and has really had a big impact here. Anyway, last week we went and took photos of a married couple and their two kids. They seem like your normal american family but they are anything but that. To sum up their story (which is INCREDIBLE), Dave was gay, his wife/used to be friend was gay . One night after work they had a little to much to drink and ended up sleeping together. They found out she was pregnant and had no clue what to do, they were both gay and although they loved each-other could never see themselves in a heterosexual monogamous relationship. God was working in their hearts and through a complete change of heart ended up turning to Christ and decided to get married. Thats a really brief summary but hopefully the point is communicated. God did some amazing things in their hearts and because of that they live radically different lives. The other part of the story is the blessing they received through the difficulty and struggle of their previous lives. Bella is their amazing 4 year old daughter, who without even knowing it, radiates Christ. Its hard to sum up this story and the emotion that comes with it but I hope the photos show a glimpse of this family.
First of all I know these shots are sepia and look sad and depressing but these last three days were anything but that. The last three days we have been going and having kids camp. We play games with them and tell them stories and do some sort of craft with them. They are so much fun and are so happy. I have been so blessed to be in the midst of India's future and been able to give some much needed love to them. Enjoy.
