Truth be told, I didn't know anything about the Graphis till last year. I saw some designers posting about it and the work recognized was great. Some big agencies were in the annuals and I thought I would send in a freelance identity project I had just completed. Identity work that stands out on designer blogs and award shows often times requires expensive printing methods. Foil stamps, embossing, debossing, metallic inks, etc. This project was the direct opposite of that. See the full project here.
Anyway, excited to make the cut for the Gold category and be included with some great work. The book being dedicated to Paul Rand is pretty cool. He is one of my design heroes and I love that Steve Jobs story about him. Big thanks to Rob Belknap for taking a couple pics for me at his studio and to Chad Rucker for coming to shoot some ammo into stationary.
