Wittman Estes
Wittman Estes is a Seattle based collaboration between architect Matt Wittman and landscape designer Jody Estes, founded on the idea that buildings and landscapes could be combined into one interconnected whole. The office is known for innovative designs for custom residential spaces, energy positive prefab housing, multifamily housing, and their ability to design for sensitive ecological sites.

We believe architecture should be based on connecting to nature and experience, and not be about making new shapes and precious objects.  Living spaces should be innovative and experimental, but also comfortable and cozy.  Housing should be modern and refined, but also have depth and richness of material and detail.  Architecture and landscapes should be beautiful and timeless contributions to the cities and geographies they are part of.

It may strike you when you return from a vigorous hike up Mt. Constitution and relax with your friends in the sauna or the soaking tubs. It will certainly happen when you eat a meal at the Doe Bay Café.

We invite you to visit and discover for yourself the remarkable, ineffable quality of this place.

Hannah Sessions
My art has always come from a place of instinct for me, and it is never easy to write about. When I draw or paint it is like a meditation, an opportunity to fully see and appreciate the beauty and wonder around us. As a farmer (Blue Ledge Farm goat dairy, established in 2000) in Addison County, Vermont, I live surrounded by my muses—be it the landscape, animals, farms or food, I am constantly moved and inspired by what is around me. I am fascinated by the lay of the land, by the way that light and human existence can create beautiful patterns upon the land, by the bond that we have with our livestock, who are both our friends and our livelihoods. We are all species existing in a place, in a moment in time, and art keeps me grounded and fully aware in the present. Though my time is stretched thin, and time spent painting is a precious gift, I think being a farmer gives me a unique perspective as an artist, almost an “insider’s view” on all things farm, as I live and breathe it every day. When I do sit down to paint, my life and my observations reduce down to a pure essence, and it pours onto the surface. I hope my love for this life comes through in my work and allows to viewer to share in a moment of awe in life’s everyday moments.

Ways We Work is a digital publication focused on telling stories and getting first-hand accounts of how people do the work they love. The idea that we can make a living doing the work that we love is driving more people to pursue their passions everyday. But what does that really look like?

Ways We Work wants to hear from people when they’re in the trenches; honest and candid conversations with people who are discovering the rewards and challenges of what it means to do the work they love.

Our goal is to be a thriving community where people come to get rejuvenated by reading about others who are on a similar path share their everyday experiences; the challenges, the victories, the elation and the heartache and everything else inbetween.

Stuart & Lau was conceived between the connection from New York to Hong Kong – our two homes. Frequently traveling between both cities, we knew well the frenetic pace that characterizes each, and it was over the course of our journeys that the need for a smarter briefcase crystalized into a design philosophy and a brand.

Though based on opposite sides of the globe our existences were remarkably similar. Busy days were spent moving from location to location and meeting to meeting, navigating all forms of transportation in between. Our lives were full and varied, and the need for a carryall that transitioned seamlessly across settings and usages with equal parts function and flare formed the vision for a better briefcase.

Brutalist architecture
Brutalist architecture or Brutalism is an architectural style which emerged in the mid-20th century and gained popularity in the late 1950s and 1960s. It descended from the modernist architectural movement of the late 19th century and of the first half of 20th century.[1] It is characterized by simple, block-like structures that often feature bare building materials. Exposed concrete is favored in construction, however some examples are primarily made of brick. Though beginning in Europe, Brutalist architecture can now be found around the world. The style has been most commonly used in the design of institutional buildings such as libraries, courts, public housing and city halls.

Douglas Friedman
Douglas Friedman was born and raised in New York City in 1972. He studied Anthropology and Documentary Film Making at Occidental College in Los Angeles. Post graduation, Douglas worked for a few years making movies in the film industry. After working on SE7EN, The Game, and Fight Club as assistant to director David Fincher; Douglas left Hollywood with his camera, a suitcase and a one way ticket to Indonesia. The next year and a half was spent traveling the world and photographing everything he came across; from sherpas at the foot of Mt. Everest to sharks 100 feet below the Sulawesi Sea; and the architectural vernacular of each port of call along the way.

He returned to NYC in the late 90's to begin a serious study of photographic technique and theory. His fascination with architecture and design found its way into his work and shortly thereafter, Douglas was shooting stories for Wallpaper, Domino and Elle Décor magazines.

Over the next few years, Douglas began exploring his interest in fashion and portraiture and established himself shooting highly stylized environmental portraits for publications like Harper's Bazaar, InStyle, and Vanity Fair among others.

Douglas has had two exhibits of his fine art photography. The first, a collection of boldly graphic images featuring the architecture and landscapes of the rural Midwest and the urban Far East was sponsored by Missoni. The second, a colorful series of abstract portraits of burlesque dancers in New York City was underwritten by fashion design duo Ruffian. Douglas is currently working on his next show which explores portraiture that is heavily informed by the subjects' situation.

Douglas is a bold-faced name for more than just his photography. As a darling of the young international social set who gravitate towards the worlds of fashion and art, he frequently finds himself on the other side of the lens as well. His charisma and charm are as infamous as his movie-star looks and his signature 70's moustache. He's often written about by the same publications for which he shoots.

Douglas currently divides his time between Los Angeles and New York.

Stanfield
Designer and founder, Janice Stanfield started her line in Oceanside, CA in 2013 with the desire to create the chic yet functional bag she was looking for, and could not find.

Stanfield is about a life lived simply, with a focus on things that are durable and last for years. Likewise, our goods are about simplicity of design and functionality. We create bags that work for you, hold up to daily use, and won’t mind getting caught in a rainstorm along the way. Bags that compliment your active life, wherever you choose to go.

Our keep-it-simple design philosophy is not led by trends but rather an appreciation for utility and longevity. Although our bags might be an investment piece, they’re expertly made to last. From substantial materials like water repellent marine-grade canvas, to carefully considered details like reinforced seams for carrying heavier loads, fully lined and finished interiors, and smooth top stitching that won’t unravel. Each design is responsibly handcrafted in-house, in USA, with great care.

Stanfield is passionate about everyday objects and our relationship with them. We believe that knowing where our products come from will bring greater meaning to them, and we value quality goods over fast-fashion. Our goal is to create accessories that compliment your individual style and get you where you need to go with ease.

SHILSHOL
I founded SHILSHOL in early 2018, shortly after moving to Santa Cruz, California from my native home of Seattle, Washington. 

After working in sales management for almost ten years, I left my career to pursue this new adventure. I had two longtime dreams, running my own business and having a career in a creative field. I feel so fortunate that I was able to merge those two dreams together in the creation of SHILSHOL.

The idea behind SHILSHOL is to bring a clean, minimalist aesthetic to a collection of products intended for everyday use. These simple designs are elevated by a great attention to detail and the careful selection of quality materials with rich color and texture. 

Every order is processed, from start to finish, at our studio in Santa Cruz. That means all of our products are designed, cut, sewn, finished and shipped directly from our hands to yours. 

I hope you love your purchase as much as we loved creating it.

OHME
OHME began in the fall of 2014, over the course of many late nights and with a few simple tools, ideas, and glasses of wine.  Since then the tools have gotten a bit more complex and the ideas have gotten a little bigger, but at its core OHME is still the product of our dedication and love for the work we do.  

We strive to make pieces that are beautiful and easy to wear, and that embody our feminism, optimism, and even our sense of humor.  As we continue to grow and create, we hope you will find new pieces to love amongst our old favorites.  

Mia Stephenson is OHME's founder and chief fabricator.  She has been making jewelry since she was old enough to stop eating the beads, and cherishes her time spent forming metal into wearable statements to send out into the world. 

Looking for a name that embraced her history and influences and left room for new growth and evolution, Mia found inspiration close to home.  OHME is the combination of her grandmothers' initials, and for us it is a celebration of the women that shaped us and started us down our path today.

Process

For me, metalsmithing is entirely process, motivated by the meditation of doing, as well as the fantasy and completion of a beautiful piece. This process of creation is born from piecing together each step - sawing, filing, soldering, sanding, polishing, setting, etc. - and from a larger personal process of relearning patience, diligence, precision, and trust. 

Inspiration

I’m inspired by visual observations, primitive symbols, tactile experiments, and nature. 

Story 

My childhood stories tend to include the words: quirky, quiet, observer, sensitive. I was the girl wearing layers of skirts and plastic necklaces, my dream was to become a fashion designer, and I've always dabbled in different artistic mediums. My mom raised me scouring bead stores and assembling our own jewelry, a hobby I took up again in 2014, until I attended a class at scintillant in early 2016, where I now work and assistant teach.
