Nine to Five

A number of you have expressed interest in what it is I *really* do for a living. Although I do have a degree in interior design, a very long story could tell you how I ended up in the madcap world of advertising (yeah, I said madcap. Could have said zany, too). I am lucky enough to be Director of Creative Services and an Art Buyer for an ad agency in San Francisco. It's a sweet place to be everyday and we're right on the water which doesn't suck. I work with uber talented, fun people who create great advertising, are completely un-politically correct and make me laugh all the ding dong day. We all even eat lunch together at the 'big table' most everyday. If that weren't enough, I get to wear flip flops, should I so choose, and bring my dog Cooper to work everyday, as he mostly snores under my desk. So, because it is such a loose and creative environment, I am able to gather and am immersed in a lot of inspiration for design here. Everyday I receive mail abundant with talented photographers' and designers' promo pieces and I love displaying some of my favorite artists and those that spark an idea in me on the walls around my office. It changes out constantly, but here's a sampling of what's up right now. I'm going to try add links for as many artists as I can identify from the mess, and should you need their talents or have any questions, I am happy to help you find them.

So...what inspires you? Wanna share?
