Suite Stuff

  In the digital age, luxury brands are smart to set themselves apart with a sumptuous printed corporate identity suite. We did this one for Carelle, a jewelry brand, focused on simple, clean, beautiful, organized, color-coordinated materials that make a statement. A 5-1/4″ square, 48-page overview brochure fits perfectly into a hand-applied floating pocket. This […]

Innovation, Meet the Invitation

This multi-part, interactive invitation to the reopening of the Chevy Chase Pavilion was a collaboration with our clever and creative client, the multi-disciplinary design collective Street Sense. This highly customized piece was specified in a quantity of less than 500 pieces, so creating a cost-effective way to produce it took some imagination.  We love projects […]

At the movies: A Priceless Printing Caper

Thanks to the prolific Weinstein Company and Sony Pictures, there’s a bright spot in our snowy, slushy cabin-fever winter of 2014. It’s the indie film The Art of the Steal, now offered on Amazon Digital and maybe also by your local cable provider before it hits theaters in March. The Guru gives it two thumbs up! […]

The Juice

  A great way to make custom packaging out of stock containers is labels. We love these labels we make for Brooklyn’s super-hip juicerie Tiny Empire. They shout GREEN and the graphics are hip and all of the labels have the brand’s ethos imprinted on them, which we love, because it answers the question on every […]

Water.Salt.Soap.Shoes.

Water. Salt. Soap. Shoes. These are ordinary things we need and use daily. Brands that sell water, salt, soap, shoes and every other commodity product have to distinguish their products from all of the others. They may not have huge advertising budgets to do so, but every product requires a package. So why not make […]

It’s Only Money

OK, we admit, we love gazing at cool, money-themed rarities such as an 18-karat solid gold and jewel encrusted Monopoly set, a certificate from the first federal bond issue signed by President George Washington and an original ticker tape from the Crash of 1929, all of which are on permanent exhibit at the Museum of American […]

Many of course are academic or medical conferences, but these gatherings come in all forms. Today, 9,000 will descend on SuperZoo 2013, a conference about pets in Las Vegas, while in Baltimore […]

Packaging’s Next Wave

When is product packaging more than just  packaging? When it’s an instant pop-up video, a stunning 3-D, full 360° product experience or a lightning-fast mobile gateway to product demonstrations, explorations, social media sweepstakes and events. How is that possible?  Our Augmented Reality technology provides brands with a new paradigm for customer engagement via packaging that […]

More on that later. For now, though, consider the sense of touch. Before the ink ever hits the page, the materials you choose set the […]

Old School’s New Rules

In the world of printed collateral, the rules have changed. If you send an actual mailed invitation in addition to your e-blasts for a special event, your brand will stand out from the pack.
