Springtime Happenings at M + E
Monday, April 8, 2013


Fun times here at the M+E Studio.  We’ll be working on some great new projects this spring, but before we get to those, we have two exciting bits of news.

Emma and I were recently interviewed for Michael Harlan Turkell’s radio show Food Seen, which airs on the Heritage Radio Network.  We talk about all the various food-related projects we’ve worked on, as well as our misspent youth. Being on the radio was lots of fun, especially because the radio station is attached to Roberta’s, and we had some delicious pizza when we were done.

Click here to listen to the interview via the Heritage Radio website. The player is on the bottom of the page.  If iTunes is your thing, you can listen here.

I was also asked to contribute a little piece for the Virginia Quarterly Review on a favorite book jacket. It’s thrilling to be included in the piece with some of my favorite designers of all time.  You can check that out here.

Looking forward to all these buds bursting into blossom, yours, M + E

New Identities
Friday, December 14, 2012

I woke up this morning and realized I hadn’t updated the site in months.  It has been a busy Fall. In September, Emma’s first novel, Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures, was released via Riverhead Books and we embarked on a nearly three-month-long book tour.  It was super fun.  You can read about the last week (when she opened for The Magnetic Fields) here. Also, if you haven’t bought the book yet, please do.  It makes a perfect holiday gift!

All the while, we were working on the road and during the short breaks between trips.  Here are a few of the new identities we designed this summer/fall.



Our friends Lindsay Key and David Shade create beautiful interior spaces.  We designed this logo for them as well as their website. Check them out.




FlanniganFarm_FINAL-01The Barn at Flanagan Farm is a new property from the people who run The Barn on Walnut Hill—another property we designed the identity for. Lookout for a website for the property early next year.




Our friends at The Brooklyn Kitchen started JCAN to bring knowledge of Japanese cuisine, technique, and ingredients to America.  Find out more about them here.



Black Owl Ventures is a new creative consulting and development firm. Look for more from them in 2013.



The Rogue Reader is an ePub focused on releasing original, outsider suspense fiction.  Learn more about them here.



We’re also putting the finishing touches on one of the most exciting projects I’ve worked on all year.  It’s a new restaurant from the people who brought you Seersucker and Smith Canteen.  It’s called Nightingale 9 and will be open in the next couple of months.  I’ll unveil the logo and signage once we’re all done.

The end of the summer marked another end to a book cover design season. Here are some of my favorites we designed. All of these will be out this coming Spring, 2013.

Passion Pit Pre-Order Poster
Thursday, July 12, 2012

Hey everyone,

We just finished designing this poster for Passion Pit’s new record “Gossamer”. If you pre-order “Gossamer” through Insound, you’ll get this special poster for free!  The poster is only available through the pre-order, so act fast before they’re all gone.
