On a cliff overlooking the Long Island Sound, the moonkissed studio is dominated by the flood and ebb tides, the calm or fury will of seasonal winds and the constant play of texture, light and color. The moon, of course, is the powerful conductor of this symphonic convergence of nature. And on each clear evening, she gives those who admire her pause as she rises over a jetty to the Atlantic and gives twilight to Manhattan while we sleep. Silently she glides across the sky, giving late-night truth-seekers a confirming nod to the interconnectedness of all things… and that knowing wink that hints at the infinite mysteries of our greater universes over her shoulder.

The moonkissed philosophy is one of forever searching for ways to capture the essence of and express our emotional interconnectedness with all things — the things we like and buy, the activities and services we seek out and enjoy and the people we love and admire, including those with whom we choose to build relationships in our work life, in our communities and in our hearts.

MOONKISSED FOUNDER ALINA WILCZYNSKI

AWilczynskiPortraitSerious500x333pxProfoundly inspired by the promise of worlds of adventure within, Wilczynski proudly announced to her Kindergarten classmates when asked, that she wanted to be a librarian when she grew up. The reaction from her aspiring firefighter, police officer, lawyer, doctor and nurse classmates didn’t exactly elevate her popularity status. And even though she couldn’t yet read most of the books she cherished, she felt the power of her imagination ignited when turning the pages of written language that were crafted and combined with the language of art and design.

The communication arts singled her out before she knew what it was called and she manifested an entrepreneurial spirit without knowing that it would spoil her for any other approach to work, life and learning. She trusted the dream and in turn found a career that allows her to fill her insatiable curiosity about all topics of discovery while journeying with other passionate entrepreneurs, deep thinkers, dreamers and renegades from just about every industry.

Wilczynski has Sharpied nametags with titles such as: Co-Founding Partner, Senior Editorial Art Director, Creative Director, Photographer, Videographer, Co-Founding Board Member, Events Director and Co-Conspirator.

Though you will notice that Librarian is not on that list, Wilczynski knew early enough that she was meant to be a guide and interpreter of sorts. She has been privileged to help translate the dreams of clients from almost every industry over the past 20 years.

Most recently, Wilczynski has been invited to serve as Senior Consultant for Wonder Women, an organization committed to empowering women to lead, to contribute and to impact society. Whenever asked about this collaborative effort, Wilczynski is quoted as saying, “Aligning my life’s work with the mission and vision of Wonder Women will be fulfilling a great desire to contribute to women’s causes all over the world. I am honored and humbled.” Read more about Alina…

SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING

“The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: a human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive.
To them, a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create — so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, their very breath is cut off from them.” – Pearl S Buck
