The stack of grads' books with a "belly band" made of collagd printing elements

Otis's very first MFA Graphic Design class graduated this Summer!  The talented group of 7 gave away these books at their thesis show to advertise the work they had done in the program. They had asked me to print the screenprinted portions of the books in Cyan and black on chip board. Great work everyone, Congratulations!!!

Pittman-Van Leeuwen Wedding Invitations

Here is a look at a Wedding invitation packet I printed for my friend Cira. Her mother, Kathleen Pittman, a Graphic Designer, designed the whole thing. The gold ink letterpressed on champagne textured cardstock looked beautiful with the Italian patterned envelope liners.
