Representing San Francisco

Screen shot 2013-09-11 at 11.03.06 AM

Save the Date! To celebrate the creativity and vibrancy of San Francisco, AIGA SF is curating a new exhibit inviting a serious lineup of influential designers, photographers and illustrators to create a unique poster of their personal impressions of the city. The inside/outsider perspective is reflected in the exhibition’s name InsideOut SF and will feature participants from the Bay Area, as well as those from around the world.

A Gala will be held November 12th and feature a silent auction to benefit the San Francisco chapter of AIGA, with all funds raised going towards scholarships, educational programming and community events throughout the year.

Bookshelf: What We’re Reading


There’s a lot happening these days at Wert&Co.–reflected in six books we would like to share with you. We’ve been preparing for a few talks and seeking to understand ourselves and our work more deeply, finding inspiration from the self discovery of childhood to the wisdom (hopefully) gained over the years. This month we also mourned the loss of John Berger who’s seminal Ways of Seeing provided us not just with a tool to view art in a revolutionary way, but a tool to understand critically the images that surround us. Finally with data ruling the day, in both politics and our work, we’ve found ourselves recently in a deep dive on both the mechanics, design and ethics of this fascinating subject.


Oh yes, the planet is sublime!


I have a crazy,
crazy love of things.
I like pliers,
and scissors.
I love
and bowls –
not to speak, of course,
of hats.
I love
all things,
not just
the grandest,
and flower vases.
Oh yes,
the planet
is sublime!
