Project Description

I developed these promotional coasters while looking for my next job. I wanted something that I could mail to prospective employers that wouldn't end up in a pile with all the other resumes, books, and posters. These coasters found a home on many a Creative Director's desk and helped me get plenty of interviews.

Production Lesson(s)

Production went super smooth. I've worked with Jason, Kip and the good folks at Henry + Co. many times. They know what they're doing.

I brought some lessons learned into the process from the beginning. I've worked at a few shops and seen standard resumes, portfolio books and such come in and go straight to a pile in the corner—or the trash. When concepting, I knew this had to be something unexpected and worth holding on to.”
