I’m sure it’s disorienting picking up your life and placing it somewhere else. Making friends and gaining new clients in an unfamiliar area is the first step towards comfortable living. This lighthearted package is a smart move(pun intended). The myturtleneck name is quite appropriate too, considering the move isto Toronto… I hear it’s kinda chilly up there.

The air travel concept was inspire following my recent move from New York to Toronto. I already had an established brand/website called myturtleneck.com. I saw ‘myturtleneck air’ as a surprising and funny way to introduce myself to the best of Toronto’s design community. Humor was an important element in the whole project as the design itself.

It would have been amazing to be able to print this self-promo package on an offset printer if I didn’t have budgetary constraints. But I was lucky to have found a digital printer that actually performed custom die-cuts with small minimum quantity orders.
