Tools of the trade.

Walker Zanger Marble Fan Deck 1954

In our world of design today we have so many tools available us to help our clients experience  the final outcome of our vision. We can use our phones to send images of product back and forth; create “Pin Boards” filled with rich images of well designed spaces and product; submit detailed CAD drawings of each room with elevations and perspective of every corner, and  use computer programs to drop in actual product  images for bathroom and kitchen tile designs. Yet even  with all that technology,  it can sometimes be difficult to convey the finished product.

Flash back to the early 1950′s when Leon Zanger was getting Walker Zanger off the ground. All he had up his sleeve was his  business card and this simple fan deck of stone. Measuring a mere 2″

x 3″, clients would be presented the color, veining, and characteristics of all the exotic stones available for their project. I wonder if as he called on perspective clients with this simple tool of his trade, he ever imagined the vision that would become the Walker Zanger of today.
