I know it’s not very “Nebraska” of me to say this, but I’m great at what I do. Part of it’s because I love it, part of it’s because I had great training via the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Interior Design/Interior Architecture Program, and part of it’s because I work with great resources and the people behind them.
I can’t tell you how important it is to have great resources at your disposal, especially if your passion is modern design and you work in the Cornhusker state (which I love, by the way, except for the recent license plate thing, but that’s another story). That got me thinking – why don’t I share these resources with you, along with other local people and places who get that it’s more than okay to think, live and love modern in the Midwest?
That’s the story behind the Modern Omaha Directory, or M.O.D. for short. I’m starting M.O.D. (which is free, by the way) to showcase local makers, movers and modern design shakers – resources you can enjoy and share with others.
Got someone or some place I should list on M.O.D.? Shoot an email with the particulars to email@example.com. If you send me a resource I end up listing, you’ll become a member of my M.O.D. Squad (perks to be announced later).
So, without further blathering, below is my first M.O.D. listing – Creative Concepts Custom Cabinetry, LLC.
Dan Casey launched Creative Concepts in 2012, which focuses on European style cabinets for residential and commercial projects. His vision is that ordinary is never acceptable. This is super important to a designer, because each client has different needs. A customer specific cabinet design can be a real problem solver.
I’ve worked with Dan on a number of projects over the years, and he’s become one of my go-to guys. He’s:
- open to innovation
- understands the importance of the most minute detail
- gets the Midwest modern design vibe
- is extremely respectful to clients and other contractors on the job
- creates detailed CAD drawings before starting any project so everything can be planned accordingly
Clients are always blown away by the quality of Dan’s work, because he builds custom cabinets like they should be built – he doesn’t cut corners by using cheap materials (you get what you pay for, people).
Take a look:
Hey, Dan – welcome to M.O.D.!
