“TOGETHER WE FLY”

For us, it’s a metaphor for how we like to work. Part skill, part improvisation. Always paying attention. In the work. It doesn’t just look good, it feels good. We’ve always got a record on in the studio.

Not smooth jazz. Old jazz. Timeless jazz. For us, it’s a metaphor for how we like to work. Part skill, part improvisation. Always paying attention. In the work. It doesn’t just look good, it feels good.

"WELCOME TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD"

Gene Kansas Real Estate and Highland Real Estate reached out to us as they were repositioning a set of retail storefronts in the center of Virginia Highland. At the very intersection where the neighborhood gets its name, stood a tired wall, and they had a vision to transform it into a landmark welcome sign. We knew we wanted to celebrate the rich history and essence of the community, so we got to work digging for a deeper understanding of what made this place so special.

And as is the case whenever we have the opportunity, we ended up in the archives. There, we unearthed some old print newsletters called The Virginia-Highland Voice. These publications used little illustrations to add visual interest, and the 1980 November issue featured a drawing of a partridge perched in a pear tree. We felt an instant connection with the style and subject matter of the image as it directly embodied the neighborly charm of Va-Hi. We were able to add a bird, swap in a peachtree, and ground the image with some bold type to make the mural complete.
