WHAT WE DO

We are a design consultancy for end-of-life. We help our clients craft unique and meaningful experiences through consulting, experience design, custom fine goods, and wholesale products.

Grief is heavy, painful and feels impossible to bear in the midst of death or loss. We provide courageous stewardship to clients that need creative expression for these emotions during life's most painful, yet transformative times. 

WHY WE DO IT

We believe the human spirit is capable of immeasurable compassion and growth in the face of tremendous loss. When grief and love are witnessed and shared by one another, it can open us up to beautiful ways of sharing our stories and ourselves. Some are funny. Some are sad. We find all of them awe-inspiring.

Meaningful and creative work is birthed from love, chemistry, and connection to things both seen and unseen. We believe people with vast amounts of courage, compassion and creativity do not shy away from life's most painful moments.

 

WHO WE ARE

We are a small firm that works with a network of multi-disciplinary designers, craftsman, builders, artists and storytellers to take a modern, yet human approach to the shared experience of death, dying and loss.

Some of us have been designers and craftsman for at least a decade and have a unique blend of professional art and design skillsets that include:

  • Traditional Graphic Design & Fine Art
  • Letterpress Printing
  • Fine Press Printing & Publishing
  • Hand Bookbinding
  • Heirloom Archival & Preservation
  • Documentary Filmmaking
  • Writing & Poetry

While we have supplemental training, knowledge and experience around grief and dying, we are NOT licensed doctors, counselors or therapists. Nor do we take the place of funeral homes or directors.

We do, however, have a reputable and highly qualified network of local professionals and organizations we can refer you to. Some of which are doing beautiful, creative and ground-breaking sustainable work.

WHO WE WORK WITH

Our creative consulting, product and design services may be utilized during all stages of life.

We work with individuals, families and healthcare organizations in need of design and creative services to better support their clients. Sometimes this takes the form of brand communication and establishing the internal core values and ethics of what sustainable organizations are built on. Other times it's a simple redesign of spaces and environment. 

Sometimes, you or a loved one has just been given a terminal diagnosis and life's loose ends need some attention. You might need a little help in finding ways to say the 5 most important things:

“Thank you."
"I love you."
"I forgive you."
"Please forgive me."
 "Goodbye.”

And, sometimes you are alone and you lost the love of your life. A spouse, a parent, your child? Even your beloved pet? And you have no idea how to carry this heavy load that's been asked of you and how to integrate this loss into your daily world.

We can help during all of those confusing times, wherever you are, whoever you are.

 
Welcoming fresh, new perspectives on how we experience death, loss and grief is the key to unlocking how we view our lives in the present.
