Eight Hour Day + Studio on Fire 

Two of my favourite studios coming together here.
Designed by EHD and printed by SOF – Words EHD.

“We created this identity with the understanding that we would be traveling for a year…Instead of a standard letterhead, we opted for a postcard and notecard. We felt this was more mobile and highlighted the idea that we were on the road. We also use a stamp to pinpoint our location on a map on the mailing label…Our new blog was a large part of this trip…we wanted to have something to give people we met along the way, or those people or places we wanted to feature that wasn’t as stuffy as a business card. Our solution was the blog pog – a bit quirkier leave behind that let people know we were going to blog about them (EHD Likes You) or simply directed people to the blog to find out more (EHD Was Here).”

Eight Hour Day + Studio on Fire both awesome + both in Minneapolis…!

Eight Hour Day – Eli No!

“Inspired by a phrase often said by our nephew, “Eli, no!” uses iconic illustrations to tell the story of a trouble-making dog (our own Eli) and the one word that follows him around. We paired bold graphics and bright colors with clean, strong typographic layouts to instantly engage audiences of all ages. A call-and-response writing style makes this book easy to read, and even more fun to shout!”

Seen originally an age ago via Graphic Exchange but as I love it it had to go on this site as well.
Eight Hour Day great work coming out of Minneapolis. Words and images from Eight Hour Day.
