"How To Meet An Angel" made by Russian artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov.
I read about this controversial art installation some time back and was pleasantly surprised to find it in plain view from our airbnb roof deck. Installed atop the Mentrum Kliniek in Amsterdam, a mental health facility, the metal and fiberglass figure is equipped with a backpack and looks to the sky with arms wide open requesting help.
While the intention was meant to signify hope for those leaving the clinic - hope that a guardian angel will assist them in their journey forward - some locals felt it appeared to be someone about to jump to end their life and didn't belong atop a psychiatric facility. Let's hope everyone with arms wide open receives their guardian angel to guide them to good health and happiness.
Home Gig most recently created marketing and promotional materials for Charles Laquidara's sold out multi-media memoir event in Boston, Massachusetts.
It’s officially sweater weather at home Gig so we’re sharing this post from autumn past. Check out all things corduroy - what does corduroy mean to you?
Corduroy textiles conjure up a number of connotations: for many of us it is the adorable Don Freeman picture book “Corduroy”, for some it is the fabric of a dependable work pant, or the name of track 8 of Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy, or grooved slopes of the freshly groomed ski slope. For others among us it is the velveteen ribbed texture that reminds us of the annual transition to our autumn wardrobe. Regardless of our personal associations, what makes the original corduroy textile unique is the way that it is both a luxurious velvet texture and a durable, inexpensive product at the same time. At Home Gig, it seems to us that it is precisely this dialectic quality that draws our attention to all things corduroy.
Home Gig recently had the opportunity to work with architect Dave Johnson of Skaala, LLC, and Bob Stafford and Mark Ellis of Carpenters and Co. to oversee the production of a design story on the “Corduroy” House to be featured in an upcoming edition of Martha’s Vineyard Magazine.
Day of the Shoot:
By the time photographer David Welch arrived to set up his cameras at the house for the photo shoot, Home Gig was ready with fresh cut flowers in hand and our car full of photoshoot essentials. Throughout the day Lauren was constantly on hand to finesse the details of each composition. Her experienced eye was able to direct the shoot to capture the interplay of light and shadow that runs throughout the dynamic space and makes the home a true architectural artifact.
The residence, dubbed “Corduroy House” early in its conception, combines the elements we love in vernacular agrarian architecture — shed roofs, exposed structural elements, reclaimed wood materials — seamlessly alongside a commitment to thoughtful architecture that takes advantage of long vantages across the space.
We were reminded again of the dynamic quality of corduroy when we met Lilly Croning at the Featherstone Reception this past week. She was spotted in a hand sewn ensemble she put together from thrift store finds. We never cease to be amazed by the transformative properties of human creativity and corduroy!
GROUDED Beauty Salon
We love ourselves a great day of beauty and when in Corpus Christi we make sure we book ourselves some time with the fabulous Ivana at Grounded Beauty Studio. We were so pleased to have had the opportunity to work creatively on the opening of her new beauty salon GROUNDED.
Home Gig designed her custom identity package inspired by the philosophy of being “GROUNDED”. We interpret that as a sign of balance. Using earth tones with a simple blooming flower, we centered stems rising up from its roots and love how it looks up in lights and throughout her marketing collateral.
Baby, Children, Home
This luxurious island baby, children’s and home boutique located on Main Street in Vineyard Haven, MA needed a fresh look and new ecommerce site for their expanding island store.
Noting the deluxe brands carried in the store such as Bella Note Bed Lines, Home Gig worked with an elegant monotone pallet and simple script fonts to evoke the feeling of luxury. We developed and designed the style sheets to represent new and existing products and directed navigation throughout the website.
Working with the store owner Home Gig introduced marketing strategies and developed a strategic plan to include branding and development, social media marketing and more. We look forward to working with this beautiful island boutique.
NO JOB TOO SMALL FOR HOME GIG!

Time to Shine
Using our favorite new creative method of foiling stamping, we’ve been able to design a beautiful Mandala style wedding suite to make Camil and Timothy’s wedding Shine!
ABOUT FOIL STAMPING
Foil stamping or pressing, (also known as foil application), is the application of metallic foil on to a solid surface by application of a heated die onto foil, making it permanently adhere to the surface below leaving the design of the dye and gives it a shiny look.
Home Gig created this Mandala embellished wedding suit using a cashmere pink and silver metallic palette for elegance. We matched the handmade fabric lined envelopes with a Peony pattern. See how your invitations can shine by using Home Gig Creative Services to create your special event invitations and paper goods!
Home Gig made a splash when we prepared for the seahorse themed Baby Shower for Kinsley Rose and mom to be Kaitlin Arga. From invitations to music, décor and favor boxes, Home Gig incorporated a tropical feel using teal and peach colors to set the tone and incorporated a seahorse graphic into the beach themed event. We designed handmade keepsake fabric envelopes to encase the pearl embellished seahorse invitations. A Diaper cake adorned with the seahorse and pearls was the center of the gift table while homemade soaps were placed into handmade favor boxes for attendees.
