International Delegation Service in Lebanon

February 14, 2017 - Douglas Cramer

In the summer of 2014, I traveled to Lebanon as part of a delegation to an international gathering of the leadership of the Antiochian Orthodox Church, the largest global body of Arab Christians and their fellow believers, who for many years contracted with me to oversee their English language Internet work.

This opportunity allowed me exposure to a vast range of challenges and learning experiences, from performing at my peak after 30 hours of travel, to overcoming cultural and language barriers, to discovering how to fruitfully contribute to a diverse team working in an even more diverse setting as we spent time in Beirut, Byblos, Balamand, and the mountains near the Syrian border. Lebanon is a small multi-ethnic and multi-faith nation on the edge of a war zone, straining under refugees fleeing Syria, while simultaneously a vibrant modern society.

Information Design and Strategy

October 22, 2016 - Douglas Cramer

Since graduating from Rutgers University in 1990 with a degree in English, and a lot of classes in what was then an innovative program in "Communications", I have worked in many publishing environments and observed first-hand the arrival and adoption of the Internet as our primary means of presenting ourselves, our ideas, our institutions, and our businesses to the public.

Deep Roots in Native Youth

August 8, 2016 - Rebecca Cramer 

My second written article in Jute Magazine! I love seeing where Jute is going, and am so utterly grateful to Lynzi Judish for including me in the blossoming of her work-of-love.

Liverpool, has always been a ship-building town, and when the industry died post-Beatles, in the mid-1980s, what was left was one of the most economically depressed areas of England. Ash Kumar’s introduction into the world of UK fashion began early with his grandmother; who, in order to help support her family, brought then drab Liverpool, a kaleidoscope of textures and fabrics in her clothing shop. Regarded as a “gifted saleswoman with a knack for bringing her customers in for the latest styles,” she surrounded herself and a young Ash, with beautiful fabrics and colors. Though Ash was born and raised in Manchester, some of his fondest memories are of the time spent with his “Gran” at her shop. Ash later found himself dreaming of fashion in college.
