“This time a custom House Industries block set design commissioned by friends at Herman Miller Japan. I thought I’d try to roll all of my favorites into this one… Andy Warhol, Maria Montessori and, of course, the Herman Miller trifecta; Nelson, Eames and Girard.

“We are going to tie the knot. In the Greek language, there is an expression that uses the word “hang” in order to say “marry”. So, traditionally, when the father of the bride says “I will hang them”, he means that he will tie the couple with the holly bond of marriage.
This tradition inspired a humorous invitation that includes both a rope and instructions on how to make a slip knot.”

“We recently designed gift wrap—complete with box and gift tags—for Hemlock Printers as a holiday promotion. Each sheet of wrapping paper is double-sided and there are eight unique designs in all. Hemlock was kind enough to customize a set for us to give away to our friends as well.
What better way to celebrate packages of all shapes and sizes, than with happy wrap to shroud them in joyous anticipation of holiday gift giving.”

“This month sees the launch of the new Penhaligon’s Christmas gift collection. The gift boxes, which are based on the theme of anthropomorphic animals, deliver a bespoke gifting solution for the boutique perfumer. Briefed with delivering eccentricity and decadence, the new collection creates a fantasy world in keeping with the brand’s charismatic charm. Each range tells a story, from an afternoon tea party through to music and discovery.
“This was a fantastically collaborative process with the client – we both wanted to create something unique that didn’t rely on Christmas clichés. The use of bright colours makes a real statement and ensures the boxes are not too traditional.” Jovan Buac, Senior Account Manager, jkr. “That’s the beauty of Penhaligon’s – the careful blending of the old and the new – modern doesn’t have to mean forgetting the past, but feeling classic doesn’t mean being really conservative.”
