In an emergency: Should you have a problem entering the apartment you can go next door to the landlord’s daughter’s residence and her office is upstairs, Meghan can assist you. Her house is to the right of our entrance. If you arrive late in the evening, or on the weekend our landlady may also assist you. Sandy’s doorbell is the bottom one.
Once you are upstairs you have the choice of two entrances, the one at the top of the stairs takes you into the back of the house. The front door into the living room. Use the key for the top lock in both instances.

I have a background in advertising and graphic design and currently publish two art and design publications as well as books on design and illustration, directories and annuals.
I founded 3x3, The Magazine of Contemporary Illustration in 2003 and purchased Creative Quarterly, The Journal of Art & Design in 2005. Together with my partner Sarah Munt we edit, design, produce and publish over 2,000 pages of content a year.
I moved to New York in 1999 from Houston, Texas where I owned an advertising agency for thirteen years; once arriving in New York I worked at Mullen in North Carolina and at a B2B Agency in Manhattan. After 9/11 I became the co-publisher of Graphis Magazine and after 11 months begin work on 3x3.
Together our firm, HivelyDesigns, has won numerous national and international awards for our efforts. We also work in branding and package design when the opportunity arises.
Our live/work space offers a quiet place to work on our many projects.
We are active in a number of organizations including AIGA, Society of Illustrators and Society of Publication Designers. Our work has received recognition and reproduced in Communication Arts, Applied Arts, HOW International Design Annual, Society of Illustrators, Society of Publication Designers, Best Cover Designs, The Graphic Eye and the Belevedere Festival in Rome. 3x3 Magazine was recently named one of the top 100 design publications of all time.
Sarah and I like photography, fine art, bookbinding, cooking, travel and attend as many shows on and off Broadway as we can. We are both speaking at the Joseph Binder Symposium in Vienna this fall and then onto London to speak at several universities, colleges and art schools.
We try to get out of the city at least every six weeks to recharge our batteries, mostly in upstate New York but we have travelled to Maine and St Martin's in the past as well as London, Paris and Berlin.
