Quick post: The venerable Allan Peters had Neil Stevens’ work posted at his site and I thought I would share it here too. Stevens’ colorful posters are minimalist, but each thoughtful details and a color palette that brings the concept to life.

Below are a few samples, but many more images can be found at the link!

PRINT | Wang & Wong Wedding Invitations

47389046-media_httplovelystati_ejIkF

Quick post: I’m working on a side project involving wedded bliss and such, so my eye is tuned to related items. The simple letterpress invitations and assorted stationary are elegant and, yet, personal (guests are invited to write words of advice on the back of custom coasters).

It’s always a nice touch when the bride and groom take the time to design invitations that speak to who they are and their preferred aesthetic. It’s like a sneak peek of the big day for the lucky guests on the mailing list.

PRINT | Tastefully Ornate Business Cards

43105156-media_httpwwwbeastpie_mlwHl

The tastefully designed business cards for rug designer Julie Dasher feature patterns from her designs. The front of the card features a different color from her brand’s identity, while the back is printed tone-on-tone in a soft off-white color.

Overall, the effect is one of richness and sophistication – offering a peek into the products (and designer) behind the cards.

PRINT | Howler Business Cards

Howler business cards

Designed to reference penalty cards from the world’s favorite game (soccer/football), these cards were printed with tonal inks that provide subtle – and beautiful – contrast to the papers selected.

It’s often challenging to create a card that stands out from the usual fare, but these do a nice job of doing just that.

VINTAGE + PRINT | Middletown Lumber Newsletter

Letter details

In the age of electronic newsletters and impersonal “Dear, Friend” emails, I love the idea of bringing back the hand-worn, vintage feel of the classic, informative, interesting newsletter.

In addition to the beautiful paper selected for this piece, the interesting mix of typography makes this a mailer that – I would presume – most people would love to receive.
