Looking Glass Design is an online Art & Design portfolio and consultancy featuring the work of Mara Jevera Fulmer and associated artists. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your design project or commissioned art work.
Writings & Musings
From time to time, we like to share our thoughts on a wide variety of subjects. Sometimes it is "creative writing" and sometimes it is creative rants. And sometimes it's even important work that may make you think differently about a subject. Our favorite is writing about issues of visual language and crossing cultures in a variety of contexts. New material and articles are added regularly on the issues of visual language and communication across cultures.
