vincent giordano

I am posting a non-alum contact here, due to the hilarity and serious chops of his photo skills - Vin Giordano is an old friend, who's work is great, and I think for product and other ID oriented needs, he would be a good resource; A damned good guy too. Check out the Facebook profile photo's,

Mike Toth - new company! new products!

I am pleased to have Mike Toth (grad 2008) join the ID alum! I have been anxious to hear some news from this strong design mind!

" I've started a company to manufacture and sell toys based on emoticons -- 3D extrapolations for folks to pop onto their desks or wherever. I've only got one model for now but I'm rapidly adding new designs."

From Mike's new company:

3plane's Shop Announcement
3Plane is ready to launch its line of hand-modeled and molded toys based off (some incredibly famous) emoticons! 3motes are here, baby. Become a fan on Facebook at www.facebook.com/3plane

see the links below - I will post in the alum links as well. Best of luck to Mike, I look forward to see 3plane blossom!

kimberly lewis - VistaPrint competition! Help her out!

Kimberly Lewis is gearing up to launch her own wallpaper design business - this competitino will help her - please see below to help her out!!

Hi Everyone,
I am not usually one to send out mass emails but I would really appreciate your support! As you may or may not know I have been designing a wallpaper line and plan on debuting it next May during NY design week. I have been working on the designing and manufacturing end of things but as far as advertising and marketing my budget is very limited!

Vistaprint / Vistaprint Small Biz is running a contest called 'Make An Impression' and is offering 4 small businesses the opportunity to receive $10,000 in marketing and promotion materials along with a few other great perks! This would be fantastic opportunity for me because at the moment I do not have much funding for advertising, marketing and will need brochures, postcards, business cards etc for my booth in May. I would really appreciate it if you would vote for me in the contest. Every vote counts! The contest is running August 24th (today!) until September Sept 4th. There is a limit of one vote per person/email address per day. Feel free to pass on the below url or this email to family and friends! You can vote for me at:


If you want to check out what I have been up to you can visit my website at KimberlyLewis.net I have a small portfolio of my recent professional work and a preview of some of the wallpaper patterns I have been working on.

Thanks so much for your time and support!!

And Josh Longo - president, vice-president, secretary of state and activities director of Longoland has fantastic news and here it is, in his own words;

for o2 (Euro Telecommunications). The monsters represent tariffs that the phone
companies impose on you, Flat-Rate, High Price, etc... There will be TV commercials, online ads, instore displays,
all covered in Longoland monsters, but only in Germany as of right now. Longoland is super excited to see his monsters
on TV and hopes to work on more commercial work soon!!!! Click the link below to see the commercial!!!!!
