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

Happy holidays! We hope everyone is staying safe and keeping well.


Zoom Zoom — The Guild's holiday party goes virtual! The philanthropic group affiliated with Adventist Health Glendale Foundation could not meet in person for its holiday party due to Covid-19 restrictions. But the ladies of the Guild did not miss a beat — they held their festive 2020 event for members online, via Zoom. 


Our team planned, produced and directed this 16 minute concert in less than one week. We also designed the film titles (above). Thanks to Jim Knell, Unleaded Pictures, for videography, and to Irene Bourdon, AHGL Foundation President. And special kudos to professional musicians Kevin Dalbey, a baritone in the Los Angeles Master Chorale, and Cody Gillette, pianist and arranger, for their fun and uplifting performance.


Music: It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year • The Christmas Song • Holiday medley for piano • O Holy Night • Go, Tell It on the Mountain • We Wish You a Merry Christmas

Creative work during COVID-19

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. Small business is vital to our economy, and we are extremely grateful for your patronage during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond. Thank you!

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. :-)
