“Some detailed shots of a 2 color poster I designed for @ibasedbod ‘s upcoming short film. Showing at Brewvies this Friday. Brighton and I printed this on our in-house Risograph printer. @ Urban Lounge.”

“My incredible Oma turned 100 on March 8th. Brighton and I designed and hand printed handkerchiefs as a party favor for her celebration that weekend. The design is based on some of Oma’s favorite things: ladybugs, humming birds, Las Vegas, Spring, and 4711 perfume. I based some of the typography off the stunning 4711 bottle label I would always see Oma with. Also the fragrance is unmistakably connected to her- so we spritzed all the handkerchiefs with 4711 before giving them to guests at the party.”
