Are you ready to embark on an Immortality Quest?

Collecting Stories People Love to See.

Inside every person – and every business – is a collection of stories and memories. We draw them out of you creating a visually engaging Visual Life Story that is deeply meaningful and creates a legacy and connection between generations.

Personal Life Stories

It’s easy for stories to get lost in the shuffle of everyday life. You might think your friends and family know your stories, but they probably don’t know the half of it! Personal Life Stories are a way to honour a life’s journey, leaving a legacy of story.

Business Life Stories

A Business Life Story expresses the heart of your business journey. Use your story to enlighten  new employees, celebrate retiring staff and remember the incredible journey that brought your business to where it is today.


All obit-books start with a “heart crafted” obituary that is combined with photos to create an accordion fold booklet to share with family and friends. By re-purposing the obituary, we offer an affordable and memorable keepsake with minimal effort. 


A visual summary of a presentation that incorporates key words and phrases with simple graphic metaphors. When shared, sketchnotes are a powerful way to help people recall and reinforce key messages and wisdom.

Deborah LeFrank

Memory Collector

After over 30 years as a successful landscape architect, Deborah began combining her passions for design, organization and life journaling. It started with the realization that her father had always been sharing stories and that these stories would be lost if they weren’t recorded in some way. Deborah gave him the gift of a lifetime, a Visual Life Story and made him feel unforgettable. It was a powerful moment and for Deborah a new career was born.

I gave away some of my best friends last weekend.

I gave away some of my best friends last weekend and now I regret it. I’ve had a visceral response to this clearing out of ‘things’. Lately there has been purging going on at my house and I’ve heard maybe at yours too. It’s been over two years since I’ve stopped...
