It’s amazing how much more interesting these branding projects are with a bit of time spent on the presentation. The wood, arrangement, flowers and camera angles help the project come to live.
Just ordered this print for the office by Joey Roth.
Kelli Anderson just pulled off what might be the coolest wedding invite ever created with a paper record player included that plays a song written by the groom and bride. With a bit of paper folding the invite booklet reveals a needle that plays a flexi disc record. If I ever received an invite even close to this one I would feel obligated to buy them an amazing wedding present.
Get inspired looking at all of Kelli’s amazing work.

Excellent article by Craig Mod on the future of books in a digital world, content forms, sustainability, and book layout design. Plus, the layout of the article is fantastic!

Does anyone have a good recommendation for a card holder?
