What is SchemeWorks?
How many times have you heard the expression: Find something you love to do, and the rest will follow?
In the Spring of 2009, it occurred to me that I had invested half of my life in my graphic design business and it was time for a change. After a year of what the envious would call retirement (and others, well...), it was time to get busy again.
It was brought to my attention that the fact I have always loved making Colour Boards / Scheme Boards (or whatever one chooses to call them) was just a tad weird. It seems that the majority of folks out there, the ones who typically have the responsibility of creating these boards, would rather pay a visit to their dentist given a choice between the two activities. As one friend and principal of an Interior Design firm put it... "I had no idea you had a board fetish!" Neither did I.
SchemeWorks is the marriage of years of design experience, a great number of those focused on real estate marketing, my penchant for making things with my hands, the need to put my creativity in a commercial setting (with real deadlines), a really good excuse to wander the aisles of hardwares stores, and, buy and use all kinds of power tools.
So, there you have it. I've taken the bits and pieces of things I love to do, for the industry and people I love to work with, and fine-tuned this into a new career... and, an end to a brief (and far too early) retirement.
I look forward to taking your bits and pieces of this and that, and making works of art that work for you.
