We were nicknamed "Jemily" in art school. We bring two very different design perspectives, constantly editing and balancing each other to create designs that are both functional and aesthetic.
blueprints: both of my parents are architects. i grew up playing with tech pens, t-squares and architectural templates.
lucky peach: for the love of food in hand written texts and illustrations, all printed on heavy stock paper. and did i mention advertising-free? lucky me.
rock, cloak and the wand: i’m a potterhead.
obsessed with coconut oil: 101 uses, it's good for you.
centaurs: i never believed in santa nor the tooth fairy. but i’m still hoping centaurs are real.
chai-wallah: the perfect symphony of black tea, ginger and cinnamon. and if i'm feeling a little fancy, i add cardamom pods. so pinky up.
void of color: i'm usually drawn to whites, neutrals, oak, walnut, concrete AND...
black: because everything looks good in matte black. ok, not everything but pretty close.
chocolate crinkles: best. cookie. ever.
freshly sharpened pencils: nothing worse than a dull one.
notebooks: i'm old school. i write down everything and am notorious for having ridiculously beat up, tattered notebooks.
teacups: i have a small collection. tea time is me time.
lemon: it's my favorite flavor.
downer movies: the darker the better. my current favorite is "melancholia" by lars von trier. it's a work of art.
david bowie: when i was 12 i developed this strange obsession for bowie. it's not about his music either, it's his face. don't judge me.
concert pianist. just kidding! i took piano lessons for 13 years. i love it, but i'm not very good.
black thumb: i love plants and would love to fill my whole house with them...but i'm a plant killer.
backup plan - farmer: not sure how that will work out with my black thumb, but my chickens are still alive.
color lover: my current favorites are navy and mustard, but it changes all the time.
reclaimed wood: hands down, my favorite material. the more messed up it is, the more i love it.
