Thrilled to be featured on Trish Witkowski’s FOLD of the WEEK with our design for the I AM STERN laser-cut folding mailer.
NYU Stern commissioned us to design a unique and tangible promotional piece for the Undergraduate College. We came up with the idea of doing a folding banner that could be easily mailed, but would unfold to a large size for display, like a pennant. We had already designed the branding for the “I AM STERN” […]
Mythbusters has been one of my favorite shows ever since it first made it to air. And I’ve been an Etsy seller since 2005, having been so fortunate as to witness its creation firsthand thanks to my fellow Gallatin alumni Chris Maguire, Haim Schoppik, and Rob Kalin.

I’m always looking for innovative ways to set text, and in the process of creating this postcard, I thought I’d give 3D lettering a try. I wanted to use a three-dimensional “ribbon” to mimic the movement of the pen or brush in the process of cursive writing. I also wanted to reinforce the feeling […]
This project has been previously detailed, but I recently photographed the actual booklets for posterity. Here’s how they came out.
(Update: photos of the printed booklet are now up.) New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business engaged with three steps ahead this summer to create a set of program booklets to be distributed to incoming students at Summer Orientation. Our work for Stern thus far (NYU Stern CACE Poster & NYU Stern IBEX […]
