Joy 2016

Happy Holidays from the RowHouse crew! This year we actually carved out a little time to post some seasonal give-aways. Don't get too excited, it's not a new Lamborghini or anything. However, we did put together a very lovable set of paper cut-outs that are designed...

The Great Outdoor

We had an opportunity recently to create our first ever outdoor billboard. My son's little league team plays in the lovingly restored Anderson Yards in South Philly. When a space opened up for a sponsor sign, I grabbed it. However, that was the easy part. Then we...

Give it away

Because the NFL said so

Okay, I've been in this business for a while. I'm hardly what you would call a "precious" designer. I'm here to work with the client, serve the people, make things look and work better. "How can I help?" is my mantra. Just recently, I had that premise really called...

When a stereotype is the order of the day

Temple University Press frequently publishes titles that make every effort to push the buttons of social, cultural, political and sexual issues. This cover for Serial FuManchu by Ruth Mayer is no exception. When I was provided the manuscript from the director, many of...

Stories from real people make all the difference
