Boulevard Magazine – 3 issues!

January 31, 2012

Why not wait until THREE issues are ready to post them?

Read Boulevard February

February’s cover was the most fun to shoot – not only is it a dog, but one of my favorite dogs, Munro! He stayed in position for a good two hours, definitely earning the Woofles treats. As he posed with his bow tie (inside story), I said it looked like he was about to have a scotch. So photographer Gary McKinstry made it happen! Out came the scotch, glass and ice. Very debonaire.
Although Esi Edugyan has had plenty of local coverage lately, Azim captured her in a light that presents her in a new way. Thanks to The Superior for opening up especially for us.
I’m very excited about Sarah MacNeill’s involvement with the magazine as the writer for Design Matters. Check out the liberty print boots and birdcage umbrellas on page 54.
Everybody has time to make popcorn, right? Love the vintage/rustic feel of Justin Eckersall’s shot of our recipes.

Read Boulevard January

On the cover is the home of architect Terence Williams, a modern yet subtle retreat in Cadboro Bay, shot by Vince Klassen.
“Football” and “Victoria” aren’t generally spoken in the same sentence, but the story on Terrel and Marcus Davis, Victoria’s best in the football scene, is opened by a dramatic family portrait by Vancouver based photographer Justin Eckersall. Also in this issue by Eckersall is a shot of the new Chevy Volt in front of Dockside Green. He managed to capture the vehicle in motion while fending off commissionaires.
Emily Sawyer Smith, a “real” cowichan knitter is captured by Dean Azim in a beautifully melancholic tone.

Read December
You’ve heard of “Christmas in July”, in this case it was “Christmas in August”. It was one of the hottest days of the summer up at Bear Mountain for the Hot Properties shoot for this issue. The team at Home Style Solutions exploded on the scene with all the trimmings for a small space Christmas. Also in this issue, Dean Azim presented me with so many outstanding images from the Stone Soup Inn, that I was unable to choose – so I didn’t! Nigel Brown, new to Boulevard, was my go-to person for shots to accompany the Travel Near Pacific Marine Circle Route story.

artsy: Royal Coat of Arms

April 29, 2011

via www.ctv.ca

Herald Painter Robert Parsons, sketches the new Coat of Arms for Kate Middleton’s family, at the College of Arms in London, Monday April 18, 2011. Middleton used this Coat of Arms until her wedding day yesterday, when it was merged with the Prince’s Coat of Arms. Kate’s heraldic design features a tied ribbon to show she is an unmarried woman and the overall shape is an elaborate lozenge – a shield would be used for Middleton men.

I think this tradition should become the new trend. How fabulous to have your own image you can combine with your chosen one.

it’s graphic: A King’s Business Card

February 22, 2011

via www.julianzimmermann.com

I’ve wondered before… does Madonna have a business card? John Travolta? The President? What the heck do they look like?

King Bansah is an African King. He lives in Ludwigshafen/Germany, works as a car mechanic and governs his people from there. A real King.

From the designer www.julianzimmermann.com, “The new corporate design should underline the authenticity and lordliness of the king because they are essential for him and make his activities possible. A combination of royal and exotic impressions. One example of his engagement is his own royal beer AKOSOMBO. The benefit of the beer is passed on to the aid projects of the King in Ghana.”

A business set and a beer – for a King. How’s that for a dream job?

Event organizer, having a party? Use icebreakertags.com to get the ball rolling. Attach these conversation-starters with a safety pin, and instead of red-eyeballed stares at your next 8am meeting, get off on the right foot.

Icebreakertags.com lets you generate your own icebreaktertag for your next meeting or get together. Type directly into the tag to add your name/twitter/prompt, add a question, customize it with your logo or any graphic of your choice, and hit print. It will then generate a printout with 10 tags on it. I think these would also make good placecards at a dinner party or wedding.

December 28, 2010

Back at my desk after a whirlwind of flying paper, light sabre fighting, family toasts and delightful dinners. While taking a break to eat a truffle… I came across this excellent letterpress calendar. I’m particularly fond of June.

via www.letterpress-calendar.com

New years plans? I’ll be sharing a recipe for Atholl Brose – traditionally served in Scotland on New Year’s Eve to the first guests crossing the threshold of the host’s home, hence its other name, First Footing.

You need a 36 hour head start, so check back.

in the house: Marie Claire Maison

December 8, 2010

via www.marieclairemaison.com

Reinvented and renovated, this church was transformed into cozy, chic and serene abode by architect Perry Harrison-Hyde. Who knows what stories this church has to tell, but it was given a second chance with the marriage of contemporary architecture and history. Love that painting and check out the window screen separating kitchen from dining.

locals only: Zambris Restaurant

October 18, 2010

via iPhone, inside Zambris | Distinguished Zambris business card - custom size

Zambris Restaurant opened in it’s new location in the Atrium Building at the beginning of the month. When I visited, the place was packed with young and old, creating a vibrancy on this downtown corner that I haven’t felt in Victoria. Floor to ceiling windows, chandeliers and retro glass globe fixtures are a huge improvement over their previously limiting locale.

Check out their menu, videos and details on their new private function room (booked until Jan 1st) on their much improved website. At 820 Yates Street, open 7 days a week 11:00 am to Midnight. Closed between 3:00 pm and 4:30 pm daily.

it’s graphic: New Day & 3 Advertising

October 5, 2010

Admiring this work from www.3advertising.com for New Day, whose mission is to “engage troubled youth and their families in charting a proactive life course that will help them become meaningful and productive members of our community.”

“Will he own a rap sheet? Or a skate shop?”

“Registered drug offender? Or registered nurse?”

“Will she struggle to feed herself? Or fight to end world hunger?”

Check out the New Day logo. Notice the ‘Y’ about to flip over? Nice.

Red Hot Bicycle Wedding Invitation designed by Beth Campbell Creative

Happy 6 week anniversary (tomorrow) M&P! These wedding invites and announcement cards were a joy to design. I was inspired by this couple’s eye for design, their soft spot for bicyclettes and their killer style. The poppies in the basket on the bike are a nod to the bride’s poppy tattoo. It’s the little things that make something personal, and that much more special. I love these shots from their wedding in April. Check out the bride’s gorgeous blue dress, the grooms fab hat and the booze canoe!
