Earlier this week, we planned a meeting (read: collision) of two delightfully different worlds: 200 of the most fashionable people in New York were invited to the city’s favorite dive bar to toast our collaboration with Derek Blasberg. Always the inspired party-thrower, Blasberg had a vision of models, muses, and rockstars nibbling Hooter’s hot wings and sipping on Veuve Clicquot in a joint typically frequented by bikers and barflies. This tall request may have daunted the novice party thrower, but your faithful stationers were up to the task. Just don’t try this at home, kids.
As the things around us become increasingly digitized—yes, including notes and invitations—the authenticity of the handmade has become ever more valuable. The design community’s enthusiasm for hand-lettered typography has reached a fever pitch, and we’re not sorry to say we’re part of the crowd.
