Owen Kirk Strandberg

Just getting back to work now after welcoming our new little man, Owen Kirk Strandberg into the world early December last year. Little guy came exactly on his due date, so at least we know he’s punctual. So far, it has been a pretty amazing experience, and it’s only been three months!

Oakland Illustrated: a Letterpress Collaboration

The fabulous folks over at The Weekend Press have teamed up with 10 talented friends and designers to Kickstart a lovely letterpress project entitled: Oakland Illustrated: a Letterpress Collaboration. Oakland Illustrated is a letterpress tribute to the city they call home in the form of 10 three-color prints, each featuring a different experience in Oakland. I am absolutely loving the palette of these prints. Find out more and back them here!
