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” […]
An ad (most of which is blatantly ripped off from a vintage 1930s Iron Fireman brochure) that will be running in the LA Printers Fair Show Guide coming up in October. Featured type: the wonderfully dimensional Valuco by Aesthetic Apparatus, and Berber by Letterbox.

I love when I discover that two places, people, or things that I am interested in separately have something in common. I’m currently making my way through Life With Letters …as they turned photogenic by the late, great Edward Rondthaler, co-founder of Photo-Lettering, Inc. I came across this passage today (on page 60): … Occasionally […]
[singlepic id=194 w=500 float=] (Update: photos of the printed booklet are now up.) New York University’s Leonard N.
