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” […]
My brother Devin and I recently completed this collaboration based on an idea proposed by famed artist/author/illustrator James Gurney: “How would an Art Nouveau designer (such as Alphonse Mucha or Henri Privat-Livemont) design a label for an imaginary product called ‘Lionfish Shampoo?’” We went a little far afield from the original prompt, in that our […]
The wonderful-to-work-with team over at Drayton Hall asked us to design their 2011 annual report (which was actually published in 2012). Over the past few years, we reworked their wordmark, redesigned their Interiors newsletter, and created a whole bunch of environmental site signage to guide visitors through their experience at the historic site.

For non-francophone readers, it should be possible to get the gist of the article using Google Translate. Stéphane is a fellow […]
The Printing Industries Association of Southern California (PIASC) is the parent organization that sponsors much of the International Printing Museum‘s activities. Each year, PIASC hosts Graphics Night, a gala event at which Southern California printers congregate and schmooze, among other more important things. Graphics Night also features an awards ceremony, where best-of-industry printing and print […]
Our design for Star Waggons’ 2011 holiday card. We went with a mid-century modern look, featuring a slightly-modified Buffalo from Photo-Lettering. (more…)
Every design project is a collaboration. Successful projects take two to tango; the best results happen when client and designer each bring something unique and important to the table.
