“Artist. I want to be an artist when I grow up.”

I wrote that when I was five and it has remained my personal mission statement for more than two decades. However, until I “grow up,” I will still create art and use my skills to a productive end.

For me, graphic design is flourishing within constraints. In fact, good design leverages the constraints such that they become the fundamental structure on which the piece exists. I view every design assignment as a problem I can solve with creativity and effort.

Igbi Design is created with Coda on a Mac.

Web hosting is provided by WebFaction.

Igbi Design is powered by Pyramid, a Python web application framework based on WSGI.

Igbi Design uses jQuery, jQueryUI, jQuery Noisy, Google Font API, Modernizr, and reCAPTCHA.

All pages are valid HTML5 and use CSS3.


Almost twenty years ago, I participated in a Multi-Cultural Interdisciplinary Unit project; my group researched Russia. In the course of our studies, we discovered the Best Holiday Ever: Igbi.

To the best of my knowledge, the Internet contains only a handful of pages with information on Igbi. There is my Igbi page, an article on answers.com, an article on TFD, an article in Wilson’s Almanac, and a temporary exhibit at the Kunstkamera. The other pages I have seen are in Russian or have gone offline.
