5 — Tattly Set Packaging

Sometimes it’s not about overdesigning or overpackaging: let the product do the talking. And these simple print packs from Tattly with gorgeous product shots on one of my favorite stocks ever — Mohawk Navajo — just want to make you rub them on as much as the temporary tattoos they carry.

We rarely publish one-off projects since we prefer to focus on the “mass” production challenges of printing. BUT, when something looks this awesome how can you resist? Plus, how many engraved ouija boards have you seen?

1 — Misomber Nuan Look Book IV

Black. Black. Black. And then some more black. Inside. Outside. And in between. I just love the mysterious presence this book has, and, OMG, I so want one. The paint-lathered cover looks like something you would never want to let go.
