A friend asked me to design labels for her new line of Jam. There was no way I could say No to such a fun project. She want’s something “Sexy” that uses Black. So my first stop was to the blog, The Dieline. It’s full of amazing packaging design from all over the world. Here […]

Ink Link at the U

Friday night Jen and I ran over to McNeal Hall on the St. Paul Campus at the U of M. The College of Design hosted a party to show off their new letterpress studios. We met there in those classrooms many years ago and it was cool to go back. And it was great to […]
