We’re wired to notice the sensational — words and images that shout. It’s difficult to say if these "hits” make us feel uncomfortable or turned on, but we're spellbound regardless.
The background squares symbolize the partial “snapshots” we encounter daily -- like the squares on our Instagram feed, or the words that stand out from the headlines. The spilled glass illustrates the fragmented nature of these inputs and the unique, colorful narratives we create.
What a beautiful mess!
I Think About You
Colliding with inspiration takes up significant space in our daily lives. Our focus on a person, project or an idea moves through phases of hot passion and chilling indifference, transforming every single day. Within each cycle, we get to observe our worth, our vanity and our unity.

As someone who spent a number of years in marketing, I truly appreciate the zest of attention-grabbing headlines. It’s highly recommended to include numbers (like in “10 top secrets”) and words that convey urgency of action and ease of use.
