I love how these photos from August, and revisited in December, show the progress in making this new construction house a very special family home.

Made by MIAD

I am excited and privileged to announce that my husband David and I are co-chairing MIAD’s 2014 Creative Fusion event!  Naturally, Jessica Jubelirer Design is a proud Sponsoring Partner and our team will work with MIAD student talent to create a visually spectacular night that reflects fantastic design: “Made by MIAD.”

Art and design play a tremendous role in innovation, which is fundamental in the 21st century’s global economy. MIAD’s unique place at the intersection of art, design and technology is important for the college’s students and our community. We are inspired by MIAD’s students, and the creative energy they show in their work, and by MIAD’s passionate faculty, whose hands-on approach enables graduates to engage with the world and strengthen our community. We look forward to an unforgettable evening in the heart of MIAD’s creative studios!

Save the Date: Saturday, May 3 at 6:00 pm

A New Website!

While websites may be a dime a dozen, designing one that catches the eye, reveals the unexpected and gets to the heart of the matter quickly is the challenge.  Early on, it was clear that great photography both sets great websites apart from the ordinary and it is also what truly shows our work. On the other hand, I found the key to the design of the website is subtlety with just enough personality to allow the photography to speak for itself: a perfect backdrop for each photo.

newsiteEmbarking on a creative process completely different in format and medium than my daily design work was such fun! I found the details of designing the website not unlike designing a room:  Carefully considered layout, design, color and balance, all assembled to show our work.  In both cases, it’s the attention to the finest detail that brings it all together.

My aim was to start by photographing homes that were diverse in design as well as rooms with striking architectural elements.  Revisiting rooms I know like the back of my hand with a fresh eye for the photograph was a joy.

An unexpected pleasure and sense of accomplishment came together in the detailed process of chronicling our work.  It really highlighted so much of what we do well in a manner that gets to the point quickly and visually.  I found this to be especially true of the architectural details: sweeping staircases, striking fireplaces, intimate nooks, and balanced and beautiful kitchens.  Overall, the process was a great opportunity to step back and reflect on all we’ve created over the past five years. The photographs reveal homes truly unique to each client with common threads of quality, execution and imagination.
