design aglow diaries: new studio open house & gearing up for summer

design-aglow-diaries-052214-1

It’s been a jet fueled couple of weeks here at Design Aglow. From our recent obsession with Pinterest which launched the creation of our first Pin to Win contest (hurry, it ends the 26th!), to the launch of two brand new gorgeous products, to a fabulous Open House hosted in our new Portland studio earlier this week (two words: donut bar)... we’re gearing up for a fun and fast-paced summer. Bring on the Vitamin D (just don’t forget your sunscreen)! For months we have been looking forward to getting to know our Portland community. And we finally were able to say hi to 50+ Portlander photographer friends at the Open House on Monday, along with our industry guest of honor, Finao. The Open House was a blast! We enjoyed mingling with creative locals in between bites of donuts. Portland-based Blue Star Donuts, aka our new BFFs, catered the event with fan favorites such as Maple Bacon and PB&J and our office personal fave, Blueberry Bourbon Basil. If you were able to swing by, we loved seeing you and can’t wait to do it again soon! As you know, we are fiercely dedicated to helping improve your personal and professional workflow so you can juggle everything better while saving time and money. In the past month we’ve released not just one but TWO game changing marketing products we are loving right now: the one-of-a-kind Virtual Postcards and gorgeous Hand Lettered Poster Printables. Both are customizable, and both are complete Design Aglow originals — you won’t see anything like them on the market! Be sure to stay tuned this summer… we’ve got some BIG things coming up! Until next time~ design-aglow-diaries-052214-3 design-aglow-diaries-052214-4 design-aglow-diaries-052214-5 design-aglow-diaries-052214-6 design-aglow-diaries-052214-7 design-aglow-diaries-052214-8

Hi, I'm Casey, a floral and visual designer, specializing in creating stylized events and gatherings. More than that, I love putting together visuals for retail and residential spaces utilizing natural components and botanical elements. Serving as the Creative Director for PlantShed, a full service, floral boutique in Manhattan, I have worked closely with high fashion and couture designers, bespoke interior design firms, and textile companies to help produce cohesive and thoughtful designs. While typically inspired by nature and organic shapes, I enjoy experimenting with more structured design concepts, botanical textures, and other far-reaching design aesthetics. But I never really meant to live in New York City. I came here in 2011 to spend a summer and potentially expand my career as a floral designer. Landing odd jobs and working freelance in the industry was exciting and stressful at first, though I eventually found a home at PlantShed, a New York based floral and plant company. So, let me tell you about PlantShe

I started my photography career in 1990 and, as expected from a traditional film photographer, my career followed a familiar path that transitioned to shooting digital. What you might not expect is that I still embrace the traditional medium of film; in fact, it now lies at the heart of the images we create at Cooper Photography. I've encountered many milestones over the years, but what I could not have foreseen were the three notable changes that saw me move full circle:
