happy monday! hope everyone had a great weekend. you know what today is, right? it's the last monday of the month and i have a new mini-view for you all. remember the january wedding we attended? the very cool art gallery wedding full of creative and unique touches? i thought it would be a fun treat to introduce you all to the groom, eric toyofuku; give you a little glimpse into his creative mind. i also thought it would be fun to get a little male perspective up in here.
first, a little backstory. my husband and eric have been friends since the womb and have maintained their close friendship ever since. eric is a designer by way of art center college of design. after graduation, he made his way up to palo alto to work as a designer for ideo, a design and consultancy firm. it was at ideo that eric met sue, his beautiful wife and soulmate. from there, ideo moved both eric and sue to the company's office in china, which is where they currently reside. their respective positions have eric and sue traveling extensively for the most interesting projects. for instance, they recently traveled to india to conduct in-home interviews to determine fashion and buying trends for a high-end denim retailer. talk about a dream job in social and cultural anthropology! OH, and as if eric's career as a designer doesn't have him busy enough, he also works on his own side projects such as custom designing their wedding rings and handmade/stitched leather goods. well, without further ado, herewith is eric's mini-view:
eric, thank you so much for taking the time to share these answers with us and give us a glimpse into your creative world. (now move back to california already...we miss you two!)
thanks everyone for helping eric feel welcome here. here's to another great week!
