I LOST MY DOG
Marine Park housewares
After 15 years working professionally in the design world, I Lost My Dog is the creative vision of Creative Director turned CEO James McDonald. A New Yorker his whole life, he was born and raised on Long Island’s Suffolk County and is a proud resident of Brooklyn, New York for 12 years. He graduated from the University of Farmingdale with a degree in Visual Communications and traveled to Europe many times to study art history. His professional career began as intern and freelance designer at Jive Records in Manhattan. Since then he has gone to develop high-end watch design for Kenneth Cole and Freestyle, travel the world for design related meetings and conferences, packaging and display design for many eye-wear manufacturers, album art for various bands and groups, and many other unique design projects along the way. Our love of type, travel, vintage, music, the ocean, sports, and anything weird or different are the inspiration for our designs. Our growing company is family operated and based in Brooklyn, NY. Our goal is to provide one of a kind products that appeal to a broad demographic: savvy design consumers, those who take pride in where they come from, and those who want to have a lasting memory of where they have been. We accomplish this with good old fashioned American pride in our work and partnership to grow our business with you together. We now employ a small design team and sales reps to achieve our expansion at pop up art shows, our online presence and with retail accounts. Our growing customer list includes over 50 accounts, mostly small boutiques as well as larger national chains. We are happy to provide further info to buyers needing references and credit checks. All of our work is designed and printed in Brooklyn, NY, USA. About the designs and illustrations: I've traveled many places and the maps I make are all based on places on I have been and explored. Instead of taking a map and putting its name in the location on or close to its geographic area, I added a new twist. Each letter is different and every town, county, borough, state, or prefecture is all drawn by hand, giving it an original and organic feel. No typefaces are used at any point, resulting in hundreds of hours spent to design my unique cartographic signature. All of my art is registered with the U.S Copyright and carries a unique registration number and certificate. The sizes of all our posters are made to fit common frame sizes and we also use high standards for paper and ink to produce gallery quality giclee prints on an HP z3200 ink jet plotter. Simply put, its high quality art in a standard size the customer or you can frame affordable and easily.

Masterwork Plaques
Williamsburg manufacturing
Masterwork Plaques is an experiential design and metal signage studio that produces high quality metal plaques for individuals, designers, contractors and corporations alike. Founded by a team of public artists, we are skilled collaborators with an eye for design and a unique perspective which allows us to create metal products that are long lasting and visually unique. Our projects vary in scope from client to client, ranging from standard signage and historical medallions, to complex wayfinding systems and commemorative projects. UNIQUE DESIGNS Each client’s project is considered important and unique, and we strive to create one-of-a-kind plaque solutions that differentiate themselves from mass-produced, “lazy” signage. We provide custom designs free of charge to potential clients. HIGH QUALITY PRODUCTS Each metal offered at our studio has its own range of benefits, and the variety of metal options allows our customers to select what works best for them. We always suggest that our clients create their plaques from the best materials they can afford. While bronze and stainless steel are more costly than other metals, they last a whole lot longer and the investment pays off over time. Our customer relations team can work with you to determine the highest quality product that fits within your budget. FRIENDLY CUSTOMER SERVICE Masterwork Plaques believes in providing knowledgeable and friendly customer service. Our team of experienced plaque makers work with each customer to determine the best possible layout for plaques in addition to the proper material and size for each project based on client preferences. We provide free consultations for installations and in-depth care and maintenance guides for all plaque projects. MADE IN AMERICA All of our plaques are made by American plaque makers in American design studios, metal fabrication shops and foundries. Manufacturing in America requires relationship building, collaboration, creativity and flexibility. We look for these same qualities in our employees and manufacturing partners. Our clients’ varied project needs and stories inspire us to become better at what we do and to create metal work that bears the “Made in USA” label with pride.
