Firefly Promotional Pieces

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

This weekend marks the first Firefly Handmade Holiday Market to be held in Boulder.   I’ve been fortunate enough to volunteer my time to help with various elements of the event, including display booth design for BirdDog Press, compilation of burlap swag bags stuffed with goodies for all the participating vendors, and will be assigned wine-pouring duty during Friday night’s opening party (not a bad gig!).  Saturday and Sunday you will find me helping The Makerie with the Community Table they are sponsoring for the duration of the market.  In exchange I’ve been offered the opportunity to display some promotional pieces during the event, for both vendors and visitors.

I had a good supply of letterpress “tags” available from a previous project, so designed my promotional piece for the vendors around the tags.  The tags are made of three layers of paper: gray on the front with my logo pressed in silver, orange (sandwiched in the middle) and brown kraft on the back.  I found a printer who offers 100% recycled kraft board in their paper selection, and worked with them to produce 5×7 cards featuring a digital version of wood block type from BirdDog Press.  Tucked inside are informational postcards, and the package is wrapped with orange and white cotton string from The Twinery.

The postcards will be available on the Community Table, displayed in a vintage hardware drawer (it is orange and gray – how perfect) found on Three Potato Four.  Please come visit Firefly this weekend!

Emerging from February

Friday, March 5th, 2010

I realized today that it’s been over a month since my last blog posting.  So much for that overly-ambitious cheapest essay writing service five-postings-per-week schedule.  February always does a job on me, and this has been a particularly long winter.  But the sun is warming up and signs of spring are everywhere.

Fortunately, February was also extremely productive.  I’m happy to announce that we just finished some nice website updates and have spent lots of time sprucing up this very blog.


  • We’ve added a graphic and a link to Colorado Homes & Lifestyles Magazine.  I’m embarking on a collaborative adventure with Colorado Homes, and will be contributing a weekly feature to their lovely blog.  The focus will be on the life of a particular project, allowing readers to follow the design and construction process while learning about materials, green-building strategies, experiences with the new City of Boulder Compatible Development regulations and so much more.  Our first post should happen next week!
  • We’ve recently joined Ellie’s List, a Boulder-based resource for green-minded building and design professionals.  Watch for their national launch on Earth Day 2010.
  • We’ve added a Twitter feed to the sidebar of our blog – please follow @krDESIGNco!
  • And finally, since my postings often rely heavily on associated visuals, we’ve increased the size of our image format.

Many thanks to my fabulous friends Susan and Laura at Q Digital Studio for all their work on my website and blog – these are some very talented ladies and so fun to work with!
