A lovely little letterpress print

A recent print that found it's way to the studio is proof that sometimes that best things in life are the most simple in design. A collaboration between Blush and Jim Williams is the perfect example. Choosing six fonts they found to be the most inspiration, a print of the alphabet was created on a vintage Heidelberg cylinder printing press. Bauer Bodoni has never looked so good.

Happy V-day

Could there be a more love-ly message to receive on V-day?

A lovely thank you

Hand-written thank you notes are a special thing, but even more so when received from a client and penned on an R+J bespoke design. Featuring a special moment of their wedding day, this letterpressed notecard contained slits on the front of the card, allowing a photo to featured on the card design. The photo could then be removed and kept as a keepsake at a later point. With their custom logo featured on the card and on the liner, this design was complete.

On trend

With the spring trends of pretty pastels and powder pink colours appearing in shops, our recent invitation design for a Bat Mitzvah seems quite appropriate. This letterpressed invitation, RSVP card and flat notecard featured colour combos fit for a young girl, while sophisticated patterns and font choices allowed the design to feel modern. The hand-lined envelope allowed for a fun pop of colour to appear and introduce the recipient to the feel of the celebration. In a chilly London town, these colours bring a bit of warmth.
