Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
The best thing about APW couples is that they are the kind who manage to retain a sense of humor about planning a wedding. Weddings are not ridiculous, but planning for one nearly always involves the ridiculous. APW couples have laughter in them. They also know themselves well—somehow those who read APW are those who are all about the love, not about the spectacle. Although they also love a good party.
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
A wedding is a ritual that marks an incredible moment, the beginning of a life-long adventure. Stationery can help set the stage, as it is the big announcement saying Yes, It's True, We're Getting Married! Every one of our designs is rooted in the idea that each love story is different—we want to help people tell that story. Our model of creating stationery that can be printed anywhere allows couples to decide how much they want to spend on their stationery. At least one aspect of wedding-planning should be easy as well as beautiful.
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
I draw lots of things. I cook lots of things and eat even more things. I stroll in the park, or hike in the woods, or sneak off to the beach, a lot. I read compulsively, but they are mostly silly things like sci-fi, children's books, art catalogues, shelter magazines... it's been quite some time since I've dusted off a history book or philosophy tome!
