Earth Hour 2010

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Earth Hour is March 27th and the company I work for, Hornall Anderson, is doing their part to raise awareness of the cause. Above are some of the collateral pieces created to promote the event. My favorite are the posters that glow in the dark which were overprinted onto discarded test prints generously donated by  a local print shop. Lastly the folks in our interactive department created a beautiful microsite to get people committed to participating. If you have the time I encourage you to head on over to HA’s Earth Hour Page, lend your support and mark your calendar’s!

Hornall Anderson 2010 Holiday Card

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

I’ve got a little personal project to share with you today! Rachel, of Elephantine, and I were put in charge of doing the holiday card for our office, Hornall Anderson. This year we wanted to do a lighthearted and fun New Years card showcasing all the great people who work there. I’m really happy with how they turned out. They’re letterpressed onto 110. lb Crane’s Lettra Letterpress cover then we inserted a digital print of everyone wearing 2010 glasses. Evolution Press did the printing and as always, did an impeccable job. There is also a companion site that you should definitly check out. Rachel and the interactive group did a great job putting it together!

Bonus: You can see what I did for 2009 here.

Stache Bash Part II

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009


As promised, I’m back with a few more pics from the Stache Bash we celebrated last week in my office. These 3 gentlemen are the winners! Each took home a prize ribbon and a moustache key chain – never to be without some face fuzz again! I found the adorable keychains on Etsy by Majesty Inc. As for the prize ribbons I’ve included a tutorial!


1) Cut out two 1.5″ x 10″ strips of paper and score every half inch on each.

2) Accordion fold the strips at the score marks.

3) Connect the two strips into one with double-sided tape. Then connect the two ends so you have a continuous loop.

4) Cut out two 1″ circles

5) Flatten the loop and squeeze inward so there is no space in the center, next hot glue a paper circle onto the center of the flattened loop. It helps to have a second pair of hands for this step. Repeat for other side.

6) Glue ribbon onto the back side, these can be paper or fabric, whatever strikes your fancy.


To make the Moustache Sticks from above simply print out the template below onto brown paper, cut and glue to a wood skewer! No need to wait until next May, Moustache parties are guarenteed fun year round! Enjoy!

Stache Bash Part I

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

Last month was officially Moustache May here in the states. Sixteen gentlemen in my office decided to participate and grow a soup strainer of their own and compete in the first ever HADW Stache Bash. Having recently joined the events committee, I saw the perfect ocassion to have a bit of fun with the event and add a few extra details. Below is the invitation and an official list of all the participants.



On the morning of the event each person in the office was greeted by a ballot and personal moustache at their desk. No reason we couldn’t ALL join in the fun!




This turned out to be such a fun event to plan and celebrate. Stay tuned for more details from the day, the winners and a few DIY tutorials.

HADW Holiday Card

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

I spent the better part of last week designing and printing our company’s holiday card. Considering that I had less than 24 hours to design and order the plates for letterpressing I’m pretty happy with how they turned out.

We needed a simple card that could be customized with a personal note and mailed to our clients. The design is a subtle nod to holiday sweaters while celebrating the beauty of letterpress. I did one pattern with snowflakes and another with reindeer. Below are some pictures of the cards.
