Daniel Stevens

Daniel Stevens has a new website DAS DESIGN and it is a remarkable site filled with many of Daniels graphics, illustrations, patterns and more - work that I have been watching him lovingly and passionately generating over the past few years. He's been a busy man. 
Daniel notes on his site;

Founder Daniel Allen Stevens has 10 years of professional experience as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator. He's loaned his creative talents to the toy industry, home decor industry and apparel industry. 
The list of brands/companies and retailers Daniel's worked with consists of small startup companies to big name companies.

...Companies like Disney, Marvel, Dreamworks... and it shows. He regularly posts his submissions to Threadless,  

and the works above and below are only a few of those that he has available for sale. He's got an incredible eye (I think my main response to his work has been, "how did you do that!?) and a fresh view of branding, logo design, patterns, character development and illustration. It's wonderful to see the new site coming together. Congratulations Daniel!

Zac Feltoon Design, LLC - Kivvit

Zac Feltoon has been busy!

Now, as; Zac Feltoon Design, LLC - he and his team have recently completed a beautiful interior
design project for Kivvit - a top, national public affairs firm. He's also updated and fine tuning his new website (click above or on image to link). This newly completed project shows a diverse range of powerful strengths in interior design, furniture design, project management, and associated architectural and contracting coordination issues. Congratulations Zac, this is a very fine space, lovely layout, beautiful furniture design, and that conference table is contract-furniture worthy for production! Congratulations Zac! Looking forward to seeing more work in the near future!

Kivvit Headquarters | Lower Manhattan
5500 Sq. Ft.
Kivvit is top national public affairs firm with expertise in local and national communications strategies.
Zac Feltoon Design lead Interior Design, Furniture Design, and Project Management.

Scope: Interior Design, Furniture Design, Sourcing & Procurement, Project Management
Kivvit, a top national public affairs strategy firm, approached us to design their new headquarters in Lower Manhattan that would represent their brand as a sleek, thoughtful, and focused firm. After scoping out the project and understanding the nature of how the Kivvit teams are adept at transitioning between working independently and in groups, we agreed on an open plan that would take advantage of the natural height of their new office space, but maintain existing conference rooms and work rooms for private meetings, calls, and impromptu strategy sessions. As part of the design development, we made sure to take ownership of their newly minted master brand color, affectionately dubbed: Kivvit Gold.

We went through many iterations of the layout for the space, making sure that with such a paired down construction timeframe, and a tight construction budget, that we would maximize effort by re-purposing existing architectural hardware such as the glass sliding doors, ceiling-mounted IT wire routing baskets, and limiting the amount of floor-channeling to the essential locations of the two East-side conference rooms.

Rachel Tublitz - Tublitzed

Tublitzed is the work and play of Rachel Tublitz

I'm a designer and front-end engineer with 8 years of professional experience.

Rachel graduated Pratt ID in 2008
Her website,  Tublitzed  is a direct and masterful 
realization of the intelligent designer, sharp artist, and easy playfulness
that Rachel wields so deftly. A few samples from her
site: Click on images to go to site.

click on the text above to meet the team! Will make you smile!

Rachel has some lovely images - the presentation on the Photos Page of images practically woven together, is startlingly beautiful. A couple here:

When asked if she'd like anything featured, this simple sentence; "I'd say....I'm working on the web building interactive software, living in NC's triangle area. You can feel free to pull whatever off the site if you want."

Well, yes. "It's simple, but it says it." Check out the site. And Tublitz & Tots - which is a lovely!!
