“The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” — a virtual holiday concert

Happy Thanksgiving to our clients and friends. We hope everyone is staying safe and keeping well.


Zoom Party! — The Guild, a philanthropic group of ladies and men affiliated with Adventist Health Glendale Foundation, could not meet in person this year for its annual holiday event at the Valley Hunt Club in Pasadena, and opted to hold a fun and uplifting event for members via Zoom. 

The Foundation is a longtime client of our design studio. When we heard they were looking for a "headliner" for the virtual event, we asked our talented friends Kevin Dalbey and Cody Gillette to perform. Kevin is a baritone in the Los Angeles Master Chorale, and Cody is an arranger, composer and pianist.

Emilie and Vic planned, produced and directed the concert in less than one week. Thanks to Jim Knell, Unleaded Pictures, for filming and editing, and to Irene Bourdon, Foundation President, for green-lighting the project.

Emilie designed the title sequence, and the performance has a vintage vibe. I think we are all longing for caroling in the snow…

We are grateful for our client Adventist Health Glendale Foundation, and the opportunity to be creative in many different ways during this unusual year.


Let’s talk about your project. Contact Creative Director Emilie Pallos for a free initial consultation. Please send an e-mail to or call us at (818) 242-9055. We are based in Los Angeles but work with clients in any location (thanks to Zoom)!

Good design is good business.

Hi, Everyone!

We hope you, your families and work teams are staying healthy. The EPGD creative team continues to work full-time on client projects at our home studios in Los Angeles — remotely.

In the past two weeks, we designed, developed and launched the new Adventist Health Glendale Foundation website. The password-protected site is aimed at donors, patrons and friends. Site contains the latest hospital info and news, vital during COVID-19, compelling patient stories, a section for The Guild, Zoom session links and a digital version of the Spring 2020 Difference magazine. New content will be added weekly. Check it out!

Our client The Racket Doctor, L.A.’s largest tennis store, now fills online orders through its website. Tennis players contact store for curbside service and racket stringing, quickly and easily through the new online form. You can also place orders for store merchandise — balls, rackets, shoes and clothing. Stringers have been working steadily since we launched this service two weeks ago.

Our team is now advising on media services/video for clients, including adding YouTube live streams and video functionality to websites.

Because we work in professional media, our studio has access to printing companies and others vendors to complete client projects, even during COVID-19 restrictions. We continue to offer web design and development, print design, photography/photo post-production and copywriting. And we have been busy!

Please let us know how we can help your business or company, now and in the months ahead.

Take care, and be safe.  :-)

Best wishes,

Emilie, Vic and Tom

In Memory of Peep, Designer Bird

This post is in memory of our sweet little Peep, finch and designer bird, who arrived on Easter Sunday 2011. She kept us company in the studio for nearly 9 years and "directed" many graphic and web design projects. 

Peep loved to sing along to Alison Balsom's trumpet music, and was especially fond of countertenors and Handel operas. Her favorite piece was Eric Satie's Gymnopédie No. 3:

Thank you, Peep. We will always remember you and smile. :-)
