It is now July and masks, gloves and constant hand-washing are just part of our daily routine in the studio...

To launch our new collection of gold-engraved record dividers, I wanted to playfully explore music and emotion with a series of feelings-based record dividers to help you organize music by emotion. Mental health and music are magically tied to one another in my experience- music helps me feel better, but can also transport me.
Imagine coming home from a challenging day to a selection of pre-selected records to help relieve, feel and cope with strong emotions.

This month I am thinking about mothers, families and our essential workers. To support families in my community who need our help now more than ever, Koeppel Design is hosting a sale and donating 10% of every sale on our website between May 1st through May 8th to the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank.

While life as we know it seems very different right now, there are a lot of things that have stayed the same here for me in San Francisco. Music continues to be a source of joy, delight and relaxation for me- and I hope for many of you as well. Music has the powerful ability to transport us, and can help us feel connected when we can't be with the people we miss and love.

San Francisco and 6 Bay Area counties have issued a shelter in place order to help slow the spread of COVID-19. As a result, our production studio is temporarily closed until 4/7. Orders will not be shipped during this time, and studio pick up has been paused. Our online store will remain open and I humbly ask for your continued support during this challenging time. The next several weeks are going to be incredibly difficult for all of us, but I am encouraged by the resilience of my community and city.
As a small business owner, much of the work I do is completely on my own- from design to production, all the way to order fulfillment. If you’re able to place an order in the coming weeks, your support will help us bounce back to full production as soon as shelter in place orders are lifted. We have a lot of products in stock, and several new products launching in the coming weeks and months. Our annual online Samples, Seconds and Experiments sale will continue as planned, starting March 27th. For all orders placed during this period, thank you. We'll hit the ground running and get orders out to you as soon as it is deemed safe by the city!
If you're considering placing an order in the coming weeks, thank you. A few folks have asked if there are other ways to support us- sharing our website with your friends, or buying a gift certificate for someone who collects records will help immensely.
Staying safe by taking precautions for our health, and that of our community is the most important thing right now. Music is a real comfort, and I hope in the coming weeks we all take time to enjoy the records we love, that makes us feel good, calm and hopeful.
