Design Library

I have recently been adding some great books to my design library. When I see something printed on paper it takes a piece to a whole new level. This is definitely partly because of growing up on the internet and having to find a lot of inspiration online.

Im constantly looking for a balance between analog and digital and books are a nice way to get away from you computer a bit. 

I'll definitely be showing more of these as I dig through them!

Open for Business

I am extremely excited to officially be taking on work as Mahaffey Design Company. After registering with the Secretary of State, and getting my EIN, things are starting to feel real.  2015 is going to be a great year and I can't wait to see where this company takes me.

 I wan't to say thanks and include everyone who has shown me support and believed in me along the way. This is truly a dream come true, I couldn't have done it with out you! 

My workspace, filled with some of my favorite tools and trinkets. 

The little things are finally getting situated in my studio and I can't complain about coffee a few feet away. Deciding who I share my desk space with is a daily battle, but I think we can get some type of schedule worked out. You may see some of the other team members frequent the blog. 

These guys are always a huge help when I need a good cat critique or dog recess. I will be updating this site as frequently as possible as new projects and fun stories come along our way stay tuned.
