Are you geared up for Summer Cycle, 2015? Maybe this route map will help get you in the spirit to ride your city! We illustrated and designed these maps to help get you from the summer cycle start downtown in Pack Square to the Highland Brewery Destination. Hosted by Asheville on Bikes and sponsored by Highland Brewing, New Belgium Brewing, and Friends of Connect Buncombe.  Find more details about the ride HERE.

We've been hard at work designing the annual benefit auction catalog for this year's auction at The Penland School of Crafts.  It is a weekend filled with silent and live auctions that showcase stunning work by artists and crafts people. The piece above by Christina Boy is titled Rib Bench, measures 18" x 56" x 16" and is made from ash, oak and stain. Christina shares, "Just as your ribcage rises and lowers with your breath, this bench flexes when sat on."

One of the most exciting projects we have in the works is a collaborative mural with our friend and fellow artist, Kreh Mellick. This is Kreh's sketch of her portion of a large outdoor mural that will grace the side of our building in West Asheville.

Macaroons! Ribbon! Calligraphy! We'd love to be on the receiving end of these wedding favors for a wedding designed by Verge Events. Each macaroon box was tied in slate ribbon with an escort card with modern calligraphy.

We reprinted a letterpress printed hang tag job for Super Fun Yoga Pants. The varying bright colors correspond with the size of the pants and compliment the amazing patterns of the product. We love the debossed texture!
