Good Stuff Holiday Pack

In collaboration with Portland-based printer Premier Press, I pulled together a group of local designers, illustrators and photographers to showcase some of Premier's processes and papers in a fun, collaborative way. We came up with the theme "Good Stuff," and a packaging system, 2013 calendar, double-sided wrapping paper and a 20' x 14' wall banner were created. Contributors include Nishat Akhtar, Thomas Bradley, Kate Bingaman-Burt, Will Bryant, Ben Clark, Jordan Domont, Nicole Lavelle, Tom O'Toole, Aaron Rayburn, Michael Spoljaric, Ryan Unruh and Everett Vangsnes. Photography by Ryan Unruh, with photo assistance by Matthew Jones.


After pulling open the perforated tab, the complete 6" x 9" collection is revealed.
