A Shop Visit

As I mentioned recently, I had the honor of being a part of an article on entrepreneurship in The Lakelander magazine. Here are a handful of the photos Dustin Prickett (The Lakelander photographer and owner of Sunglow Photography) took for the article. Dustin did an incredible job of making lemonade of the lemon that is my shop. ...

Some Local Press

I absolutely adore my local City magazine.The publisher is a brave gentleman who stepped out of his comfort zone to bring a quality quality of life publication to our community. He sought some pretty wise design counsel and an incredible editor (a friend of mine with exquisite taste). When she stepped down earlier this year, a dynamic team of women (the world-changing Alice Koehler and the mighty fine photographer Tina Sargeant) took the helm.The most recent...

Building Your Business Stationery

A business' stationery is rarely thought about. About the only time some businesses consider it is when they experience a re-branding and have to purchase a whole new suite.Some clients, however, build their stationery suite as needs arise - business cards for a networking event, thank you cards following a large project.

A Pair of Letterpress Business Cards

Recently, one of my neighbors at Catapult Lakeland asked for some business cards that solved a couple problems he had. Like many creatives and entrepreneurs, Joshua leads a couple different lives. He's the CEO of a software development company and owns a real estate company, among other things. He wanted a business card solution that was relatively minimal in content, reflected a hand-crafted vibe,  and funneled recipients to his most effective channels of communication.To do...

Awesome Letterpress Postcards

If you read my posts regularly, you may know that I'm currently taking a few Skillshare classes, including Branding With Radical Typography by James Victore.Man, James is a tough teacher.I'm not sure about the other students (I have my assumptions), but I came to the class with a shoulder full of baggage as it relates to type and design. I'm a type snob (I might change the fonts I use on this website because of how...

Does Where You Work Matter?

After an unexpected week hiatus, I’m back with another Creative People Are Weird.Typically, I try to have a fairly clear opinion in these videos, setting up to volley with you, dear viewer, and incite lively discussion.This week’s a little different.I’ve been thinking (and reading) a lot about location.Are creatives who chose to live in rural areas or smaller cities at a disadvantage over their more cosmopolitain colleagues?Has technology compensated for all of the challenges of...

Designing Stationery In Adobe Illustrator – Using Templates

Many designers seem to see Adobe Illustrator as some great mystery. I'm always amused by how many people I know who are perfectly comfortable working in Photoshop, but will do everything in their power to avoid working in Illustrator.The fact is: For most stationery design projects, the best tool for the job is Adobe Illustrator. (tweet this) Illustrator is an incredibly versatile tool for text and illustration design.
