My passion for documenting my life experiences through short videos inspired me to turn it into something more — to not only be able to share the power of film, but also how much film enhances others’ memories of their significant moments, too. As someone who was always drawn to my creative spirit, it wasn’t until I realized I could make this passion of mine no longer a side project, but a career. From there, the name Blnk came from a dream. The rest is history.
01. WHAT’S IN A NAME
B-l-n-k, think like blink, except I did the hipster thing and left out the “i”. There’s often a reason for everything, and for me, it was a play on typography. If any of you are design nerds, like me, keep reading. I left out the “i” on purpose, because I wanted the word “blnk” to visually represent it’s meaning — a blink happens in a flicker of time, a moment that passes so quickly, that in fact we have to open our eyes and blink again to live it some more. You know the flickers you see in my videos, or the manipulation I do with time, it’s inspired by this exact thing, this feeling we all feel.
I'm so happy you’re here, and what's even cooler is now you know why Blnk is, well Blnk. With a little bit (more like a lot) of love, and a bucket load (more like infinite truckloads) of passion and hard work, Blnk Films was born.
02. OK COOL, AND THE LOGO?
Yep, I have a story for that too. The more you get to know me, the more you’ll realize I have a rational for nearly everything. I don’t do things just to do them, I create with intention. Blnk's logo is an illustration of tree rings. Because I gather so much inspiration from nature and the world around us, I spent time diving deep into how our experiences relate to something found in nature that physically documents life and growth. I thought deeper about the idea behind trees as a symbolic tie to human life, more so, a tree’s growth patterns and their relationship to our own life phases. You see? Tree rings — a symbolic representation of the experiences in our life that make us who we are. Yeah, I think it’s pretty cool too.
