Money Well-Spent

15 Aug 2012

When our client, Santa Monica-based Library Alehouse, asked us to help promote the grand opening of their newly renovated interior space, we definitely thought outside the box – with custom-designed wooden nickels. These memorable coins-good for five dollars off any bar order- were an instant success with existing patrons and first-time visitors who soon became repeat customers. We say, give us a nickel for your thought every time. Especially a wooden one.

SHOW and TELL

We love our design ancestors-like Hatch Show Print, a letterpress shop founded in the 1800s. Today, it’s owned by the Country Music Hall of Fame but still relies on old-school techniques like printing with hand-inked, hand-carved wood blocks. We commissioned our very own Hatch Show Print to celebrate our anniversary and held a party to celebrate. The result was a tuneful recipe for design success.
