Ash&Ember: A Gentleman’s Shop
Ash&Ember is another outside project I did through Inuendos design project and it was very exciting for me because I have designed quite a bit for them. And their proprietor Joe is a very cool and encouraging cat to work for.
Here is a gallery of some of what I designed for them:
The back of the Gift Certificate seen in the first picture!
The actual directional sign at work!
My illustration and design based on a sketch I did in 2009. Joe at Ash&Ember collaborated with me telling me what he envisioned the final looking like. And here is Jade. She will, like Abe, be featured on a matchbox.
The sign I designed for Ash&Ember. This sign was team worked as far as it’s final execution. It was to be lit which was pricey, I had the idea to make it in-house with plexiglass with frosted elements on standoffs, the production manager suggested lighting it from behind and using translucent vinyl lettering in black. In the end we came up with a sign that looks almost painted on in the day and saved Ash & Ember some scratch!
Measurements are in Millimeters so don’t let the numbers throw you. This box features not only my design but my illustration and tag line.
Ash&Ember is ’round back so a directional sign shows foot traffic where to go.
Joe sells hand blended tobaccos and required labels. This design is based off of my Ash&Ember sign design and the business cards.
A gift certificate designed by me… no, printing it won’t help you, it will need the signature of the Proprietor or his agent.
Jade matchbox cover design!
