The website was produced by Violet Khodagolian of DesigninLA and her collaborator Vachik Ghadimian. Aside from addressing the functionality of the website and the specific needs of Asbarez, these two young and energetic professionals had the arduous task of ensuring that our archives were properly migrated onto the new site, a task which proved to be much more tedious and time-consuming than initially expected. We would like to thank Khodagolian…
The Sweet Dreamer is a beautifully illustrated, fantastically imagined children’s picture book. It shares a powerful message about living our dreams, even as an adult. Saccareccia and her co-creator and illustrator Violet Khodagolian have tested the draft on a crowd ranging in age up to 86, however, and their feedback has been the same: This story is a beautiful way of reminding us to keep our sense of wonder alive.
Violet Khodagolian is an art director and web designer. Niki Saccareccia is a yoga instructor and a child therapist. Together, they have created The Sweet Dreamer, a “children’s book good for adults,” which they hope to bring to life with the help of a newly-launched Kickstarter campaign.
“Everything else we can be taught how to do, but nobody can teach you how to dream,” Khodagolian says.
