Who doesn’t love to have inspirational sayings and quotes around as little reminders or motivators. It’s even better when they are attractive and functional, like these coasters.

Project Description

Design Life is a set of 8 coasters with inspirational sayings that relate to both design and everyday life. Each quote said by famous thinkers, designers, and even a top creative from Anthem, is beautifully illustrated with the designers unique interpretation. We hope they will serve (pun intended) as inspiration, reminders, or conversation starters; or perhaps all three!

Production Lesson(s)

For the designers, this was our first letterpress project at Anthem. One of the challenges we faced was finding the right print vendor on a tight budget. Cranky Pressman was a great find, and they made our vision really come to life. ”
