This identity set is part of the Dig for Fire (video production company) brand overhaul timed with the inception of digforfire.tv. With a plethora of items to ship to clients and friends that include reels, mix-cds as well as business correspondence there was a need to develop a series of options that could accommodate the various materials—the hand-assembled packages with the layering of different materials and textures is reminiscent of a gift.

We wanted the materials/packaging to immediately feel like they were designed and assembled with care. We also wanted to keep the set from feeling too over-the-top or spendy. Using inexpensive digital offset from online/hands-off print vendors was a risk that paid off with careful planning. We kept the pieces simple (pure CMYK black and red, no gradients) and mixed textures freely to make humble materials a bit more interesting.

Pieces in the set include:
-Letterhead with stamped #10 envelopes
-Satin business cards with a kraft wraparound sticker
-Kraft cd/dvd mailers with a wraparound label/closure
-Round stickers
-DVD labels
-Notecards with matching envelopes
