sUPER excited about these. While the bride ended up going in a different design direction, they will be printed as a split-fountain on Gmund Savanna Limba paper (its pre-embossed with a fabulous wood grain). I think my favorite from this round has to be the oak with custom typographic swashes. You?

I have to say, I have some awesome brothers. Both of which I love dearly! Matt, the little brother, worked for Dingbat last year before he started grad school and if you remember he did a few great posts on business Friday. As a thank you, these were supposed to be at NSS last year for him to hand out but they got lost in a shipping snafu and then buried for a few months back at the studio. I finally was able to find them and dig them out as well as photograph them and get them sent off to their rightful owner. A few things about Matt, he really liked this flying pig that was rejected by another client. He claimed it as his own. Matt’s personality is all about having fun, enjoying life and having a positive attitude. He …

Now I know I say this a lot about my clients but Natalie was SUPER awesome to work with. While we explored what felt like hundred of options, Natalie was really patient with us as we worked on her designs, layouts and typography to create a minimalist rockstar card for her new consulting venture. When we finally got close to the design that Natalie wanted, it was a matter of then taking that and figuring out color and iconography to organize her information. This type was beautifully small and I love how petite it looks with their little matching dingbats and knocked-out type. I love the red on these too – it was a really rich and bloody color to print! Thanks Natalie for working with us and being so inspiring to work with. I am so happy with how these turned …

You may remember a few days back the logo variations we explored for Josh. Below is the finalized style guide for the branding we did for him. Upon completion of our branding package, we like to put together a style guide indicating pantone suggestions, RGB Hex #s for web matching, typographic notations for continued use on alternate business collateral and some pattern samples on extending the brand. In addition to the style guide, upon establishing the brand look, we can also apply the brand elements across to other pieces such as business cards, letterhead, notes, product tags and labels, and more. Part of establishing a style guide is to help grow the brand equity, especially when its a new brand. By establishing color harmony and typographic suggestions, we help that brand (and the people doing the every day stuff behind it) to …

It’s that time again to check in with my resolutions for 2011 and check-list. First off, I still haven’t bought anything for myself yea! Although iPhone 4 (yeah the one with the cracked screen 3 weeks after buying) has met an even more depressing demise- it dropped again, this time bumper cover and all, about 18″ and the rest of the screen shattered. I can’t really read anything anymore, but the touch functionality mostly works. It’s been taped up with packing tape. June couldn’t come fast enough for iPhone 5. Sheesh! Wedding invites were out the door for my brother-in-law – 650 of them, another sheesh! That made for an insane weekend! Things accomplished for NSS – The Book was previewed. There was a price cut on the Lettra 600 GSM – but not enough to temp us. So we’ve officially switched …

I’m a total sucker for some wailing banjo music, and even more so when they lyrics are A M A Z I N G! As I’m sure you’ve noticed a theme going on with the letterpress Valentine’s Collection 2011 – here is yet another set of cards inspired by my love for music. Calligraphy was done by the fabulous Grace Edmands Calligraphy and then incorporated into design for 2 really pretty Valentine’s Day Cards. Grace, thanks for collaborating on such a fun project – you really made these rock! Let Love Grow (above) inspired by Mumford & Sons Winter Winds: Love, it will not betray you, dismay or enslave you, it will set you free… Here is Mumford & Sons live with Sigh No More (inspired above) – you have to listen to the song change about half-way though and then go …

If any of you have sentiment for this song in Robin Hood (and recently in Fantastic Mr. Fox as well) then you will want this limited edition print we did in honor of love, life, and its eternal cycle. Every time I hear this, it brings me back to my childhood nostalgia of young love & innocence. Letterpress 8×10″ print in 2 inks (red/charcoal) on 110#/300GSM paper. Signed and numbered edition of 30, you can get yourself one in the shop here or by clicking on any of the images. Give the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, as a bridal gift, or anniversary gift – I know I’ll be keeping one of these for myself! Lyrics by Nancy Adams. You may remember this tune from Disney’s Robin Hood© or Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox©.
