American Manifesto Update

CRW_9779_web.jpg

Since we've released American Manifesto, time has flown by and we've been bombarded with an overwhelmingly positive response. We'd like to extend a wholehearted thank you to everyone involved. It's been such an amazing experience to see the conversations that have spurred as a result of people either purchasing or interacting with the book.

The launch party was hosted in conjunction with an AIGA Minnesota Cocktails with Creatives event with around 100 guests. Shortly after, Todd was invited to discuss American Manifesto during the morning show on local radio station, AM 950. You can listen to the segment below. We've been sending out copies to politicians and public figures while continuing to seek out opportunities for new press coverage to continue the dispersal of his message encouraging social change. The end goal is for the Manifesto to serve as both a starting point and fuel to a larger conversation that needs to happen regarding current American policies.

At the launch party, book sales were high and there were fantastic, engaging conversations among guests regarding both the content and the design and production of the book. Following the radio spot, we also had a wave of inquiries and sales. The book is drawing attention from the creative community as well as the general progressive public. 

If you'd like to view the book in more detail, we have posted the book under our design portfolio, which you can check out here. We still have copies of American Manifesto for sale, which you can purchase in person during our studio hours or you can buy it online!

Are you looking for holiday decor and gift wrapping accessories with a bit of humor this season? Or maybe some that are a bit vintage inspired with that tactile letterpress feel we all love?

Wedding Invites

It’s been loud around the shop lately – and not just because of our press. Wedding bells have been clanging all summer long with our massive influx of wedding invitations needing to be printed! All jokes aside, we’re happy for all these couples and glad we were able to provide them with some beautiful and fancy invites. Most of these were brought to us by other designers, so it’s really wonderful to see the level of talent in our community and to be able to help finish their work off with the perfect high-quality craftsmanship we strive for. Using good ol’ classic letterpress printing, edge painting, blind debossing, die cutting and metallic inks – we definitely covered all our bases with these invites.

Market Street Dermatology Branding

When the doctors over at Market Street Dermatology approached us here at Angel Bomb to design an identity for their new dermatological office, we were very excited. After talks about what kind of look they were going for, we knew the best approach was something classy, modern, and clean. We ended up creating a street sign motif out of negative space with modern type. After designing a line of stationary to match, complete with greeting cards, we knew we had set up Market Street Dermatology with an identity suite that we could both be proud of. Once it was all designed we jumped on the press to print some awesome and tactile goods for them. An interesting part of this project worth mentioning is that we used both offset and letterpress printing for their pieces. By using offset we were able to get better coverage with the flood of ink on the backside of the cards. Best of luck to them with their new business!
