 JP GRAZIANO Concept by Jen Serafini and Jack Muldowney

Jen and Jack wanted to collaborate on a branding project together, so they decided to rebrand their favorite sandwich shop, JP Graziano, as a concept design.

JP Graziano is one of the oldest and most recognized sandwich shops and Italian grocer here in the West Loop of Chicago. They pride themselves on a rich history and generations of a family owned business, which is something Jen and Jack wanted to focus on and celebrate in their new concept. The colors lend themselves to a more traditional Italian look, while the clean and simple typography balances out the style by bringing in some more modern touches. They had a ton of fun building this brand out, from postcards to stickers and sandwich wrappers.

Quote(s) of the week - 21/07/2014

55 Hi’s    |    http://55his.com

55 Hi’s was started in 2010 by Ross Moody as a simple means of spreading inspiring quotes and quirky ideas. It has since spiraled out of control—in the best way possible—into an online greetings collective, of sorts. A destination for graphic goodness, tasteful typography, and artful alliteration. 

At 55 Hi’s, sincere life lessons are laid delicately onto handmade french paper where they frolic joyfully, side-by-side, with cards that become shot glasses. Why? Because both of those things will make you smile, and smiling is a nice thing.
