Hart & Honey is the creative collaboration of Ashley Wilcox (graphic designer) & Lily Glass (photographer). We began working together in the Spring of 2012 when we realized that collaborating made our final products even better and the creative process more enjoyable. In our joint and individual work, we seek to generate quality content, meaningful conversation and tangible goods that make life a little lovelier.
Most of our best memories include food. our favorite gatherings take place at the table, lingering after a second helping. Food brings people together. It is a common ground, an even playing field. it is here that honest conversations take place. That true understanding of one another can happen. Food meets so many needs; it slows us down. The planning, preparing and consuming of it take us out of the daily grind, out of the content-content-content screaming at you and it grounds you. We hope you find a respite from the hustle of life within this space.
WHERE: Los Angeles, California.
WHY: Hospitality goes far beyond your pinterest party board and backyard twinkle lights. It's welcoming the unexpected, and making room for mess - your own and that of the folks that enter your space. It's not always lovely to the eye but often enriches the soul. Making room for the inconvenient and remembering over and over (and over) again that it's the people that matter most. We are told to love because we have been loved first. To encourage one another, build one another up, pray for each other and eat together. And in our experience, each of the former can take place while enjoying the later.You can read more about our WHY here and here.
What is "hart"?
The word hart refers to a red deer stag. The term was used in medieval times to describe a stag 5 years or older, mature and ready to be hunted. Committed to hard work and good craftsmanship, we strive to grow and be better. We think working together provides encouragement and sharpening that is often missed when creating separately.
What is "honey"?
Honey is the sweetness and intentionality we bring to our work experience. It's the one-on-one interactions and understanding our clients and their brand, their personality, and their hopes. Our work is based in the belief that hand-written notes are best and time spent investing in people is more important than time spent at our computers.
