make a difference

bela borsodi

every shot is so unique and creative. impressive. see all of bela borsordi's work here. he collaborates with paul graves on many of them.

NEW giant sea creatures

jeff and i just weren't satisfied with our first attempt to brand our screen printing studio. then jeff remembered this great drawing he did in college. i think little octo fits our design and aesthetic much better. we will start posting artwork soon.

Welcome to GOOD, media for people who give a damn

We see a growing number of people tied together not by age, career, background, or circumstance, but by a shared interest. This revolves around a passion for potential mixed with fierce pragmatism and creative engagement. We sum all this up as the sensibility of giving a damn. But to shorten it, let's call it GOOD. We're here to push this movement and cover its realization.
While so much of today's media is taking up our space, dumbing us down, and impeding our productivity, GOOD exists to add value. Through a print magazine, feature and documentary films, original multimedia content and local events, GOOD is providing a platform for the ideas, people, and businesses that are driving change in the world.

i love this site,, and i don't have any good excuses to buy such expensive items during the rest of the year. jeff has been good and i have been saving. the uten. silo by dorthee becker fits perfectly in our studio. the his and hers graphic blanket is for snuggling while watching flight of the conchords. i admit the latter is more for me than jeff. oh! i love the travel blanket too!
