gifts & gallery

For 7 years I owned, operated and branded my own store in Downtown Brooklyn. Artez'n was a neighborhood store featuring products made by over 250 New York artists (pre-Etsy). Products ranged from shirts, jewelry and underground comics to collaged furniture, iconic barware and metrocard sculptures.

Although my store has closed, I'm honored to have given many of my artists the confidence to change their hobbies into careers; and proud that at least 4 of the artists have since opened very successful stores of their own.

I also found that i love making designs for retail. Some of the custom designs for Artez'n can be found here.  Current retail items are available here.

At year 5, it was time for a brand update. This "hipster" design, created in 2008, was used in conjunction with the original branding.
