Project Description

The thought of designing crafted goods by hand is important to us. With the evolution of technology, designers often use machines as a crutch. Periodically, we dissect our process and use a more traditional, hand-crafted approach.

We strayed from the typical route of choosing color swatches for the brand. For the studio it wasn't about the brightest colors, but the textural quality of the materials used. Hand embellished elements on each piece gives them character and individuality. When choosing which line of paper to use, we took into consideration how it would tie in with other design decisions. We loved the look of randomness in the Speckletone line, which coincides with print process, giving it a united end result.

Production Lesson(s)

Scheduling an appropriate amount of time to put the care into each item is important since there is a possibility these pieces are the first interaction with the studio's design.”
