The past couple weeks we’ve been working on a simple logo for and a detailed drawing of a cool new space: The Pella at Blackstone. The guys over at Iwen Exposures are rehabbing the 100+ year-old Pella Lutheran Church (whose roof was torn off by the 1913 Easter Day Tornado hours after hosting its first service). The chapel will be a rental hall and the basement is going to house some pretty awesome sounding creative spaces. As for the logo, we kept it simple (you can’t go wrong with Emigre’s Brothers), but to add a subtle unique detail, we used one of the trefoils featured prominently on the exterior of the building in the negative space of the “A.”

The asked us to make a digital drawing of the building in addition to logo. This is always one of our favorite things to do.



It’s always a rush (in every sense of the word) to put out Hail Varsity’s annual yearbook. The 2014 edition hit newsstands this week and features a fantastic feature of senior Husker I-back Ameer Abdullah by Brandon Vogel with photos by one of our favorite shooters to work with, Alyssa Schukar. They spent a few days with the Abdullahs in the their small hometown in Alabama. It alone is worth the cover price, but it’s also chock-full of previews, breakdowns and analysis, plus the best Husker football photos of any magazine out there.

They’re on the stands until Christmas, but football starts in only three months! Go get it!

Hail Varsity teamed up with the Creighton Athletic Department to create a rush-job 120-page commemorative magazine for the Bluejay’s NCAA tournament run and their star player, Doug McDermott. The deadline was tight, but we think this is one of the best publications we’ve designed in the past year.

This Friday marks Arbor Day, and we’ve had this block print in mind for months. We took a slice of an old landscaping timber, cut out the shape of Nebraska (home to Arbor Day) with a bandsaw and used that as our block. Simple, grungy, texture-y. We love this sort of stuff.

One of our dearest clients, OBC, asked us to design a wool cycling jersey for cooler weather. We love bikes. Steel ones. With vintage parts and toe clips. So this was right in our wheelhouse.  OBC_wool_jersey_main


Welp, we’ve jumped on the tall graphic bandwagon. Well, that’s not entirely true. We’re late comers to the format, for sure. But we believe that we can convey information well no matter what the package, and for this project, the client wanted a tall graphic. So a tall graphic we delivered.


The start of a block-print series. All the best in 2014.
