Change is in the air

Things have been insanely busy lately here at the zen kitchen. Since I last updated this blog, me, Persephone & Benjamin, and the studio have moved into a new space just outside of Davis Square in Somerville. The old studio, while spacious, proved inefficient for running a growing design studio, so it was time to move on to a new place with enough room to expand in the future.

Speaking of growth, the zen kitchen has its very own intern—Madelyn Madeiros, who hails from Jamaica Plain, has delightfully agreed to spend a few hours a week in the studio learning the ins and outs of green design and running a studio. I couldn’t be more pleased—not only do I get some extra help around the office, I get to help another young designer learn the ropes of doing this thing we do—and hopefully, I get to show her a more mindful way of doing it.

In other tzk-related news, my articles seem to be popping up all over the place: the “Image is Everything?” series about making sustainable design choices, which includes “The Problem of Paper” and “The Issue of Ink” has now been featured in both Creative Latitude and the Holistic Business Journal. In addition, I’m in the process of writing a new article about making green decisions in your marketing plan for the Boston Herald’s Women’s Business magazine, which should come out sometime in November. The Somerville Journal also ran a story about the studio during the week of August 30th. It looks like all the hard work I’ve put in this year has started to pay off—in addition to all this writing, I now have a number of great projects in the works. I’ll make sure to keep you posted.
