Tom Froese Stationery

Self promotion designed by designer and illustrator Tom Froese.

 "These letterpressed business cards and post cards were designed as tangible mementos I could leave with people with whom I meet and people I would like to connect with, respectively. They provide a tactile way for people to interact with my illustration, to not just see the forms but to feel them, to run their finger along them.

What I like about letterpress printing is that it is its own evidence of the process. You can see and feel the impression where the ink was laid down. There is something very honest about letterpress printing, where you work in limited colours, and those colours will only ever be themselves, not part of some matrix of many colours pretending to be one. Letterpress is a very natural production method for my illustration style, which uses larger coloured forms accented by simple, often linear details. I usually volunteer the constraints of letterpress/silkscreen methods as a basis for my work, so in this sense, this is the truest way for people to encounter my work."

Amola Salt


Rebranding for Amola Salt by Vancouver-based Arithmetic. The also developed the brand name creation, logo design, and packaging.

"Amola salt needed a reposition in the market. Arithmetic did extensive research on salt and ancient salt trading. Gathering this research and telling this story was the main focus for this design. Amola is a great example of masculine and delicate design with a touch of luxury for a product that is more of a necessity."

A "Ritzy Affair": Leo Burnett

Letterpress and hand-painted edged card by Leo Burnett Dept. of Design.

"In an effort to create an object that matches the nature of the event, these invitations brandish one luxurious treatment after another. When recipients open the envelope to discover hand lettering, letterpress, blind embossing, spot varnish, and hand-painted edges there should be no doubt that this will be one ritzy affair."
