Thrilled to reveal the new wholesale catalog from Bremelo Press Summer/Fall 2016.
While Sheila and I talked over tea, we realized there was important design history in her family to share on her business card and stationary. Sheila's father Tom Strobel is known for his op art of the 1960's and early '70's. We wanted to re-create this history in the design. As we were working, Sheila asked if she could have an exclamation mark in her name. We found an Alpa-Blox sort and a circle ornament, and made one. Hand set type leads to interesting solutions we wouldn't have thought of on our own. It's the best collaborator and I love it when a good conversation starts an adventure in the print studio.Read More
Sometimes, the more simple you go, the better it is. I love this card and stationary set for the photographer Kristin Zwiers for that reason. We've kept the design clean so there is room for her own style to come through. It is like her camera. It is the tool for her creativity, and with it, she will make beautiful things. Stationary as a tool. I've never thought of it like that before and I like it.Read More
Briar wanted to know the possibilities of the materials in the shop. So we looked at the wood type, the metal type, the numbering machine, the perf rule and I told him about 'bleeds'. This card has a perfect balance of curiosity and restraint. That's not easy to do, but in the right hands, it works.Read More
