What’s great about Summer is we have folks stopping by all the time…. Joel Speasmaker of Forest Design and artist Caroline Hwang dropped by to do some secret Poketo projects (secret for now, you’ll see soon) and also to let the doggies hang out.
Joel is an artist and designer, the former publisher of one of the raddest art magazines, The Drama, served as art director for Anthem Magazine, and the designer for our recently launched Poketo visual identity and website. Joel is holding a very special letterpress version of our logo here that he designed. Printed by our good friend and amazing art printer, among other things, Via San Mateo.
Our friend Via owns and operates an incredible letterpress studio in Berkeley. I’ll be featuring her studio, Olive-Route in a future blog post, more on that later.
Our studio is buzzing right now with Summer interns too. Without these incredible folks, I don’t know how we would survive. Hard working, dedicated, amazingly creative… I am extremely grateful that they are here working with us in the studio.
And of course, our Poketo peeps that hold down the fort, that make Poketo run smooth, our left and right hand… what else can I say, I am honored.
