Way back when, I lived in Japan for awhile. They do things a little differently over there and I observed that many people sent out new year’s postcards (nengajō) similarly to the way we send Christmas cards. So this year, instead of adding my small voice to the mighty holiday chorus, I decided to send my very own 2014 New Years card.
Perhaps you didn’t get a card (or the joke)? Shoot me your mailing address at ab(at)andrewbartondesign.com and I’ll see what can be done next year.
Happy New Year!
Thanks to the good folks over at the Cooper River Bridge Run, I had the opportunity to create the 2014 CRBR marketing brochure. This year’s featured image (the shoeprint), by Marcus Terry, is particularly good IMHO.
Meet Ken. He’s a great potter, a kiln-builder and the maker of my favorite coffee mug. He’s based out of Charlottesville, VA. Check out his site.
CLIENT WORK: SEWE ads are starting to hit the shelves in preparation for another great weekend in February. It’s always a pleasure to work with such beautiful artwork.
Maps are fun. I love the process and the finished product. But like most worthwhile projects, in the middle they can be challenging.
A map must precisely reflect reality so there’s not a lot of wiggle room regarding structure. That said, after establishing the framework, it’s amazing how much character can be added with design and illustration. To see what I mean, check out two of my recent map projects.
