Paul Howell

Paul Howell learned everything he knows about graphic design in the Navy. Not really, but it’s fun to point out that he printed his first design at the age of 15, working as an intern in the design studio of the U.S. Navy’s Department of Morale, Welfare and Recreation on the U.S. Naval Air Station Roosevelt Roads in Ceiba, Puerto Rico.

He’s come a long way since then, earning a BFA with honors from Arizona State University’s graphic design program and working at some of the Southwest’s most respected firms.

Bob Jacobson

I'm currently (April 2020) focused on bringing broadband internet service to the region (Southern Arizona's Santa Cruz County) and locality (the hamlet of Patagona and its neighbors) -- where I live and broadband doesn't. However, when called on by other actors for more complex challenges I do my best to serve.

When Life Imitates Work: The Fence Project

Jim Bolek Fence Project

I Have Not Lost My Marbles

By Jim Bolek

When my wife Sheila and I restored our house 27 years ago, we built a block wall around the backyard to keep in our dogs and kids, and keep out other dogs and kids. But we wanted to be good neighbors, so the wall was only four feet tall. (We had small kids and non-jumping dogs.) We could talk across the fence, keep tabs on yards when neighbors weren’t home, see their dirty laundry, and so on. Nude sunbathing was out, but that was rarely an issue.

Plainsboro Public Library

Branching Out

Hardworking graphics add punch to the community-centered design of the 21st century library.

Think of a public library, and what comes to mind? Perhaps the red-brick blocks of our youth, where fluorescent lighting cast a yellowish glow and anything above a whisper was strictly taboo? Fast-forward to today, and a slew of newly built libraries are conversation starters, awash in natural light, with vibrant colors and patterns beckoning card-holders to linger and explore.
