How to Package Yourself as a Product - Personal Brand Coaching by Designer Maxwell Alexander

The story of how Branding became Personal

The story of how Branding became Personal by Designer Maxwell L. Alexander Back in my School of Visual Arts days (less than a decade ago) we were all like “branding is all about consistency, consistency is the king…”  Boy oh boy, have we gone far from that! As we all know the universe exponentially expands while speeding up in the process. Big Bang is the ultimate concept that can precisely describe socio-economic processes within human civilization: empires are born, expand then fade away. Real Estate bubbles grow, expand then blow up. Economists and mathematicians are busy creating models that supposed […]

Hudson Valley Hiking Adventures with Max & Dino

Hudson Valley Hiking Adventures: Overlook Mountain Woodstock, NY

Hudson Valley Hiking Adventures with Max & Dino Two weeks ago we were running around in t-shirts and celebrating Summer, but not on this beautiful yet crisp Saturday afternoon. Everyone knows that humans are the creatures of habits, but not everyone wants to face the truth. We are trying though! Things are more-less settled after our move to Kingston and we are finally squeezing some time to have actual “normal people’s” weekends when we can do something more laid back and less business-oriented. So, we (mostly I 🙂 ) decided to get in a habit of exploring nearby hiking trails, […]

It’s not hard to see why. “Many homeowners hear the term ‘barn door’ and think of reclaimed, rustic wood, which may not be a look they’re interested in,” says Linda Jovanovich of the American Hardwood Information Center. “But contemporary barn doors offer many more aesthetic choices than their traditional image suggests. We’ve noticed a trend toward the use of solid, fine-milled hardwoods like walnut and cherry for sliding […]
