When not busy designing and managing projects for our wonderful clients we’re busy working on projects for The Candy Factory, our coworking space located in Lancaster, Pa.

From our coworking zine to space design, marketing materials and merchandise we’re never short for fun and interesting projects. Our most recent merchandise project are labels for our custom coffee blend called Bridge Mix. This amazing blend is locally roasted and blended by the historic Gerhart Coffee Company and it tastes as good as it looks!

We take our coffee seriously around here and our design is no exception. We hope you enjoy our labels as we much as we enjoy our coffee.

Like how this looks and interested in how it tastes? Stop by Warehouse D and pickup some for your very own.

We’re always up for a challenge, and for the fourth year in a row we were given the task to create a unique and personalized digital holiday greeting for Landis Communities.  Landis Communities offers support to Lancaster’s older adults and dependent-living community guided by joy, compassion, integrity and stewardship.

We were challenged to do something different and fun that kept with the Christmas spirit. It took a lot of brainstorming, sketching and reworking, but we feel this vintage stop-motion card was the perfect complement to this amazing organization.

After our planning was complete, we hand drew and crafted each piece, including the type. The scene and characters were brought to life with over 700 individual frames stitched together and edited to create the final piece.

The vibrant characters and stylized landscape capture the nostalgia of the season through its vintage aesthetics and warm message.

We were delighted to work with the Landis Communities team again this year on this special project. You can check out the full video and images of our process below!
