Event Designer, David M. Handy
It all starts with a conversation – a simple sit-down that is more meet-and-greet than business rendezvous. But once the books are closed and the hands are shook, the entry to event designer David M. Handy’s imagination bursts forth.
Possessing a fanciful mind that is limited by neither colour nor concept, Handy’s desire is simply to create – a craving fuelled by a passion for fashioning unforgettable evenings that strike at the heart of originality. “We create an event that is something that no one has seen before,” says Handy. “I want to do something that’s going to be wild, something over the top, and something that has not been seen a million times before.”
But nothing is forced in Handy’s world. Designs grow organically and feel natural, roaming faraway from a manufactured look. To mark this originality, Handy melds vibrant colours with a pinch of the unorthodox, giving classic arrangements a distinct yet comfortably conversant quality.
His welcoming demeanour towards clients helps to facilitate the creative process, and Handy holds this in the highest regard. “Something I pride myself on, and we pride ourselves on in the company, is our interaction with the clients. We’re very personal,” explains Handy, is based in Boston and New York.
Although weddings are his speciality, Handy’s company orchestrates 40-plus affairs each year, including non-profit and corporate events, launch parties and birthdays. But this frenzied schedule is all made worthwhile by the wide eyes and gapping mouths of elated clientele.“Just seeing their face when they walk in the room for the first time is fantastic.” www.davidmhandy.com
