"Leave the dishes.
Let the celery rot in the bottom drawer of the refrigerator
and an earthen scum harden on the kitchen floor.
Leave the black crumbs in the bottom of the toaster.
Throw the cracked bowl out and don’t patch the cup.
Don’t patch anything. Don’t mend. Buy safety pins.
Don’t even sew on a button.
Let the wind have its way, then the earth
that invades as dust and then the dead
foaming up in gray rolls underneath the couch.
Talk to them. Tell them they are welcome.
Don’t keep all the pieces of the puzzles
or the doll’s tiny shoes in pairs, don’t worry
who uses whose toothbrush or if anything
matches, at all.
Except one word to another. Or a thought.
Pursue the authentic—decide first
what is authentic,
then go after it with all your heart.
Your heart, that place
you don’t even think of cleaning out.
That closet stuffed with savage mementos.
Don’t sort the paper clips from screws from saved baby teeth
or worry if we’re all eating cereal for dinner
again. Don’t answer the telephone, ever,
or weep over anything at all that breaks.
Pink molds will grow within those sealed cartons
in the refrigerator. Accept new forms of life
and talk to the dead
who drift in though the screened windows, who collect
patiently on the tops of food jars and books.
Recycle the mail, don’t read it, don’t read anything
except what destroys
the insulation between yourself and your experience
or what pulls down or what strikes at or what shatters
this ruse you call necessity."

Fabio Ongarato Design
"Design continues to play a more important part in contemporary discourse because it deals with the way we feel.
For all of us, design must be an experience regardless of medium; whether it is print, environmental graphics or identity creation, the outcome must stand out and truly connect.
Our designers are compelled by the view that design is a cultural imperative and so see it as his or her personal responsibility to create a heightened experience that engages emotionally and intellectually.
This view leads to ideas that find form beyond one dimensional expressions, with our designers owning and guiding the multilayered design process; working closely with clients to understand their marketplace and their perspective in order to determine a unique voice that is our client’s – not our own; a unique voice that reflects an enduring, differentiated point of view.
Our work is informed through strategically-driven thinking and research to ensure that it is distinctive and goes beyond the expected; ensuring the outcomes surprise us, delight us, reassure us, engage us.
Such feelings are the product of our broad ranging craft, and the essence of the work detailed in this website.”
