"I adore Ari Signes, internationally-known designer from Spain. We have worked together over the last three years and we also became good friends in the process. I think she's one of the most talented designers and 3-D renderers (she produced all the amazing Mod Life renderings) on the planet. I feel horrible that she's endured what she has professionally and I stand behind her 100%. She stands up to abuse of power and shares her journey (on her blog) with Mod Life and what happened recently when she found out her name was taken off her designs in her blog post below.... --Kiersten"
I HAVE ALREADY FORGOTTEN
It's been four years since I post on here for the last time ....
What has led me to write this has nothing to do with revenge or anger, but a deep feeling of loss and disappointment. Someone said "There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness.” There is no more powerful action than forgiveness.
For almost 5 years, I thought Robert Petril and I were good friends. He infected me with enthusiasm and led me to believe that "if you can dream it you can do it. In 2012/13 , I agreed to co-design with him as well as design a few pieces of my own. I also agreed to create all of the 3D renderings for every design for him on spec (on good faith) over the last five years. I have not received payment for the renderings or any sales related to his last go around with my designs. I believe I received one payment for $70. I admit that, in the beginning, I didn’t want to get paid because I knew his financial situation and, as his friend, I wanted to help.
I am the designer of several of the pieces he appears to be taking credit for on social media and they appear to be part of the collection he just re-launched at High Point Market........
