Danny Gugger joins JSGD this week as our newest designer! Danny is a New England native who just moved back to our humble coast from Wisconsin (you have got to see his moving van). We’re captivated by his layout design for Collective Quarterly, his meticulous identity work, and wander-lust of an instagram feed. Let’s begin our hazing with a quick fire getting to know you questionnaire – little does he know that we are secretly judging his every answer.
Print or Digital?
Salty or Sweet?
Cats or Dogs?
Outside: Dogs. Inside: Cats – I’ve always grown up around cats and have a serious soft spot for them.
Morning Coffee or Nightcap?
Nightcap for sure. (Typically bourbon)
Packers or Patriots?
Not much of a football fan, but I’ve always gone Patriots by default.
Beyonce or Rihanna?
Rihanna as an artist. Beyonce as a person.
Welcome to the family, Danny! We’re so happy to have you – and you’re gonna fit right in :)
The end-of-year list season is upon us and, while our inbox and twitter feeds are being bombarded with design trend round-ups, the lists we tend to click on most come from the music realm. Our studio soundtrack not only influences our moods and keeps us bopping in our seats – but inspires our designs, daily!
Studio Vibes Included (but were not limited to):
Desert Sound Colony
Justin Bieber (don’t judge)
Oneohtrix Point Never
Robyn and Röyksopp
We got to bring our dream market into our own living room. Thank you to all of our amazing vendors and studio mates for participating – and to all those who came and shopped alongside with us! If you couldn’t make it (or didn’t get enough), links to everyone’s shop below.
What a beautiful duo for Pantone to choose for 2016’s Color of the Year! Rose Quartz and Serenity feel like a dreamy departure from last year’s grounded and seductive Marsala.
Uplifting in a time when we all need need it, Pantone’s reasoning for the first ever duo-choice covers everything from seeing a shift in focus to wellness, to seeing gender lines blur, to instilling a sense of order and peace. With so much psychology in color, we find it so interesting to follow their trends.
This year, we’ve specifically curated a round-up of guest vendors that we’ve long admired – who don’t all have brick and mortar shops here in Boston. We wanted to bring these brands to YOU so you can not only touch and feel their products but get the chance to meet their inspiring owners in person. Along with our super talented co-hosts/studio-mates, this event is a can’t miss for getting your Holiday shopping on!
