Born in a former Pennsylvania crude oil boomtown, Doug realized he needed to seek city life or go insane. Upon graduation from Rochester Institute of Technology, with $250 in his pocket, he packed his black 1977 Chevy Nova and left. He met Selene Carlo-Eymer while they were working at Selame Design Associates. “We each sat next to chain-smokers,” he reminisces. “Once we orchestrated the move to bring our desks together, the rest was history.”
He and Selene formed Eymer Design, a traditional and new media design communications firm. For over a decade, Eymer Design brought intelligent, incisive design to the development of branding strategies, corporate image and identity systems, sales and marketing collateral, annual reports, packaging, interactive marketing, and World Wide Website development. They won national and international recognition, as well as many awards.
Over the years, Eymer Design developed a strong working relationship with the large Boston agency, PARTNERS+simons. In early 2000, PARTNERS realized the benefits of joining forces and acquired Eymer Design.
In spring of 2004, Doug left PARTNERS+simons and started EYMER. These days Doug can be found working on a variety of creatively motivated projects for a smattering of fun and interesting clients.
Doug is past president and former board member of the Creative Club of Boston. He currently sits on the board of the Cohasset Library Trust, SciCoh Youth Football League, and coaches Little League baseball. Doug was also a founding board member of the Cohasset Education Foundation. He frequently lectures on Branding and the Design profession and coaches Little League baseball.

Sally is a writer and editor specializing in web copy, long-form content and social media. With 25 years of experience in print and digital publishing (educational, book + magazine), marketing and corporate communications, she’s done a little bit of everything. During an especially long winter, she helped to dream up the dark underworld of the Tiny Mind Gazette and hasn’t been quite the same since. However, for professional (paying) clients, she always keeps her multiple personalities in check. Sally has a B.A. in Communications from Simmons College and completed the Stanford Professional Publishing program. For more info, see: www.sallysisson.com
Michael Calienes has been a advertising copywriter for a long time. He thinks he's funny. And he's right more not than often. For more info, click here.
John contributes (under diverse aliases) to TMG because he can’t help himself. He is otherwise occupied as Publications Manager and Chief Enthusiasm Officer at Boston University School of Management. He loves golf, words, and his family (but not in that order), and hopes one day to retire peacefully on an ant farm.
Dr. F graduated from "Parts Unknown" High School (Where he enjoyed sitting among the E's and G's, and other F's.) He is a military veteran with too many words on his fingertips. Dr. F received a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Arts from Excelsior College and is a three-time graduate of the Defense Language Institute. He is fluent in several languages and not afraid to use them. He's toured the world trying not to be "the Bad American" and has drunk the cup of human culture (and a few other legal concoctions that have permanently scarred his outlook on life). He admires the beauty of language and the comedy of daily life. He spends most of his free days pondering the leave piles littering his back yard.
Dr. F uses TMG as that "little pile" of ginger to cleanse the soul and get on with that next morsel of sushi in life. He enjoys watching people exercising, watching people drawing, and watching people play the guitar; activities he used to enjoy doing himself, when he had time. Dr. F's children say he's so obsessed with providing his tales to TMG, that they've had to pull him out of many a busy intersection while he was jotting down observations for his next TMG offering.
He'd like to tell us more, but then…
