Project Description

As designers, friends, and coworkers who spend roughly 60-80 hours a week together, we felt compelled to host a Christmas party for our friends.This was mostly just an excuse to design something together. One thing led to another and we ended up with invitations, food and drink menus, a map and custom-stamped wood ornaments as party favors (that also doubled as coasters at the party.)

The "Friendbears" theme stems from the fact that we always call each other bears as a nickname or term of endearment. The party was a huge success and a second one is in the works.

Production Lesson(s)

Order your stamp before you need it, not the day you need it. Otherwise the process went surprisingly well. ”
