Editor: Thom Ryng
Thom was born in a small town in central Germany but grew up in urban Chicago. How he arrived in Tacoma is anybody’s guess. He’s a whiz with words, focusing his talents on writing, book design, and even what he insists on calling “marketing mojo”.
A bibliophile, he has a passion for early book design. There is absolutely no truth to the rumour that he speaks French. If he had a single thing to tell you, it would be this: collect metaphors.
Staff Writer: Francine Mastini
New York, Rome, Seattle… Tacoma? These cities in Francine’s life (so far!) created her sense of style and fueled her love of beauty.
Raised near Manhattan, schooled in Italy, home again to cross a continent to Puget Sound, art has shadowed her every step. She’s learned to observe pattern and design and translate them into the form and functionality of style.
Artistry is everywhere.
