Hi friends, sorry it’s been awhile. We’ve been busy working 20 hour days, inventing fonts, learning German, making new work, launching an online shop, expanding our studio – all the while trying to keep a very exciting secret.
You see, earlier this year we were approached by the (extremely nice and amazingly easy to work with) stationery editor at Martha Stewart Weddings to create a custom stationery suite for their Fall issue. We jumped at the opportunity and worked with her to create a custom set that was inspired by the imagery and color schemes she sent to us in an email. About a week after we had received her original inquiry, the designs were printed and carefully packaged in our handmade wooden crates as if we were wrapping a present for Martha Stewart herself. Off they went to New York, and we were burdened with the knowledge that one day, we would see our designs printed on the coveted glossy pages of MSW – and we couldn’t say anything until it was released!
Well, the day has finally come, and we are proud to announce that on page 244, there we are.
And, since we’re on the topic of Martha Stewart, I’d also like to mention that we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve been nominated for an American Made Award! Holy cow. Can you believe it??? We can’t. We’ll especially be delighted if we hear on September 7th that we’re a finalist. Can we hold our breath that long? We’ll have to see!
