Here are a few pieces we recently framed for Sheila Cole, a local Minneapolis designer and owner of Shecole Inc. (www.shecole.com) for her own home.
Here is the art we framed and corner details of each of the PRISMA Frames:
We love the saturated color we can achieve with the PRISMA Frames and the modern look.
These frames do have infinite design possibilities and a designer can be extremely creative with their concepts for commercial and residential client's projects. Please visit our showroom to see these samples in person and we can assist you in framing your next great design project.

Venus by Aubrey Beardsley
He was unknown in 1892. By the time of his death in 1898, a mere six years, he had broken through the Victorian unconscious and hurled England into the 20th century. Many of his drawings first made their appearance in books or magazines with relatively limited subscription. Despite this, his erotic, humorous, and haunting drawings came to be popular and have been for more than a hundred years.
A great example can also be found in Goldfrap's Video below:
ASI did all of the signage in the project and have featured the donor wall in their overall case study for the PMHH project, please see the link that is featured on ASI's website. The link describes the great collaborative process that went into the design. The project also received 1st runner up for the “Best of ASI” at their national sales conference in Miami.
Thanks to ASI for the nod!

"For over a decade, my work has been exploring the complex relationship between representation and abstraction. The motif-driven compositions, comprised of natural, social and historical iconography, serve as framework to investigate this interaction." -Will Corr
