It was so nice to hear from Reid Neubert's wife of 10 years.
Reid designed the most popular Supergraphic on this site:
Here is what she had to say:
When I started dating Reid back in 2004, he had his own marketing/ branding business, Reid Neubert and Friends. I knew that he had done graphic designs before, however I did not know in what capacity.
Reid had an architecture degree from Berkeley. Never a practicing architect. He said to me that it was a great foundation to go from. After graduating from college he did some hand drafting for an architecture firm out of Sausalito. He really enjoyed the lettering aspect and could copy the main architect lettering. From there apparently he went into graphic design, eventually starting his own Marketing/Branding consulting business.
He was an amazing photographer and sold his photograph images to Art.com and Getty images
Reid was diagnosed six months after we started with salivary gland cancer. Reid and I exchanged rings in 2006, eventually getting married in 2009. We resided in San Rafael, CA until his death. I have attached a photo of us from 2012.
He was an avid sailor and I think he was at most peace when he was sailing. He was a volunteer for the Blue Water foundation, a nonprofit organization that takes unprivileged kids out on to bay to teach them about sailing. He loved working with the kids. https://www.bluewaterfoundation.org/
In addition, Reid love to social dance. In particular, West Coast Swing. After introducing it to me, we would go to as many West Coast dances as possible.
Before he became too ill to work, we designed a couple of kitchens. It was really fun working together. I wish we could have done a lot more together. See link for portfolio of our design work:
I was very lucky to have had him my life!
