The South Illustrated

September 26, 2012

“The South Illustrated” 2013 calendar was designed exclusively for Garden & Gun for our sister company Sideshow Press. Each calendar page is hand pressed on our pony-sized 1926 letterpress. We illustrated each month with a drawing of a southern staple and paired it with a quote by a southern author. The monthly cards are displayed on a wood veneer mounting plaque with a leather strap for hanging. Each calendar set comes packaged in a burlap bag sewn with a letterpress tag.

Home Team BBQ

September 20, 2012

We have been working with Home Team BBQ for many years now. Recently, we updated their brand that we originally designed for them back in 2006. We kept the core elements of their brand, infused some new elements and expanded their logo family. With two locations and a cult following, we designed a few more elements that they could use on everything from menus to sauce packaging to merchandise. You can see some of that new branding at work on the sauce packaging we just completed for them. Read the rest of this entry »

Mixson Bath and Racquet Club

September 12, 2012

When we heard Mixson, a new community within the Park Circle neighborhood in North Charleston, was opening a Bath and Racquet Club, we were beyond excited! Over the past several months we’ve been working with Mixson to brand and plan a launch event for this new alternative to the traditional swim and social club . The first step was to invite a group of influential Charlestonians to become the founding members. Each of the newest members will receive a hand delivered invitation to the club, complete with a printed towel and map to the property all neatly packaged with a feathered shuttlecock.

Lichty Guitars

September 3, 2012

We were first introduced to the beautiful work of Jay Lichty through Garden and Gun Magazine several years ago. The magazine awarded the talented luthier as the overall winner of the Made in the South Awards in 2010. It was a pleasure meeting Jay and his wife Corry then and we’ve been following his beautiful work ever since. We were thrilled to get a call from them this summer to help them take the presentation of their brand to the next level. Read the rest of this entry »
