Here’s a peek at the extra special packaging we’ve put together for our brand new print series. Get ’em while they’re hot on Etsy!
Music has always been a gigantic source of inspiration for me as a graphic designer (see my wedding invitations, for example), and I’m proud to introduce the first specimens in a series of audiophile prints exclusively for the Three Steps Ahead Shop on Etsy. These examples were all inspired by music of the 1960s, specifically […]
Here’s a sneak preview of the 2012 Los Angeles Printers Fair show guide cover, which will be given to all attendees of the Fair and also be available for purchase as a limited edition letterpress poster. The Fair is taking place at the International Printing Museum in Carson, California on Saturday, October 6th. Among all […]
Our friends Jasmine & Yale are getting married soon, and Alyssa and I decided to go all-out with our letterpress habit to create their invitations. The design process started on the computer, but the goal from the start was to create something really special, where the computer would only play one part of the tune. […]

Just caught wind of this video posted two days ago on YouTube—a simultaneous parody of Lady Gaga and the font-of-the-decade, Neutraface. Nevermind the comedians’ unenlightened pronunciation1; it certainly proves that Neutraface has ascended to a cult status almost comparable to that of Helvetica.

One of my favorite aspects of living in Southern California is the local architecture and its accompanying signage. Many of the schools in my area were built in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, and lots of them utilize gorgeous, low x-height, geometric titling faces like the ones on which Neutraface is based. The Southern California […]
