I was thrilled when Jen Silverman asked me to create one-of-a-kind custom donor gifts for the top donors at the University of Buffalo.

The University’s signature blue and white colors date back to 1886 when they grew from a one diploma granting institution, to two. At the time the School of Medicine tied its diplomas using white ribbons. As its School of Pharmacy prepared to graduate its first class, it distinguished itself by using blue ribbons. Keeping this firmly in mind, I designed a pashmina and silk tie with entwined blue and white ribbons as an enduring symbol of tradition.
I hope you’ve enjoyed hearing the story behind these designs. If it has inspired your thinking about pursuing a special recognition project, we would love to hear from you. You can also see more of our work in our Lookbook.
