Here are some of our accomplishments:
Special Projects: Tall Tales Long Lenses Special edition photo books can sell for thousands of dollars, and this box – designed for a limited run of 50 books – needed to match the luxury and fine-art appeal of the products inside. Each material was carefully considered for durability and strength, look and colour, and how it felt to hold in your hands. A mix of leather-like materials, and more traditional woven fabrics give contrast and interest. A minimal foil stamped logomark tells the consumer everything they need to know. The unique design of the box speaks to the significance of what is inside, and – in an increasingly disposable culture – the over-the-top care in construction tells the end-user that this is meant to be used, loved and explored, for many years to come.
