Letterpressed Book Jacket

This project was a thank you to our clients who attended our SHSMD dinner. We purchased 60 copies of "Longitude" by Dava Sobel, and because this was a piece of a larger campaign, (see my post for the SHSMD Dinner Invitation) I wanted it to have the same feel as the previous pieces. "Longitude" is a story of innovation, imagination and discovery that also contained many nautical references which made it a perfect gift for our clients who received the nautical invitation package and attended dinner aboard a large, vintage ship. To keep the same look as the previous pieces, I used the same colors and fonts with fun type treatments. As I was creating the design, I realized that this project was demanding to be letterpressed. I have always wanted to have my work printed at the premier letterpress print shop, Studio On Fire. So, with some creative thinking (for the budget and time off work for a press check) I was able to have my book jacket printed at Studio On Fire AND I got go to Minneapolis for the press check and a one-on-one tour.
