I enjoyed using this beautiful tulip photo by Larry Shapiro to make this poster for an upcoming photography exhibit in Los Gatos.
I’ll be exhibiting one of my collages:
If you like it, you may purchase wall art, clothing, and lifestyle items with it printed at: https://society6.com/product/night509847_stretched-canvas#s6-7140287p16a6v28
Love it when I am able to create my own photo to fit with a design. So much nicer than searching for stock photos and then trying to customize them.
For these food still-life shots, I knew what colours, what layout, and what vibe I wanted for the brand and shot it with food found in the house and garden.
Here’s the final rack card:
The image on the front is a mix of photos taken at events catered by Palace Cafe Catering. It’s the same image you can see in a magazine ad in this post, “Catering Company Re-Brand.” Photographers: Michelle Walker Photography and Michael James Buchanan.
And here’s the gift certificate:
Thank you, Palace Cafe Catering, for working with us on your new branding. It’s been a special experience.
Last year our client, Palace Cafe Catering, decided to close their Sunnyvale cafe and focus entirely on the catering side of their business. They have begun construction on a huge and fabulous new kitchen with offices in Belmont. We are looking forward to participating in moving their business forward. Thank you, Palace, for including us in your exciting new business plans.
Along with this move, they are updating their branding. They’ve new colors, style, design, and fonts. New print collateral is in the works and their new web site is almost ready for launch.
PREVIOUS AND NEW LOGO
NEW MAGAZINE ADS
Yesterday, we finalized their new e-mail campaign template and launched their Mardi Gras Menu. As always, our mouths watered while we work – we know how delicious the food is.
If you would like to try them yourself (we could not recommend them more), call 408.774.6100.
On the web at palacecafe.catering. If you see a site with a cream background, this is the site we made for them in 2004. But with the new site just about done, hopefully, you’ll be looking at their new one.
We are pleased to support the Montalvo Arts Center by donating graphic design and printing costs to the Montalvo Service Group. It’s the most local of the non-profits we support. Each time we visit, we feel good knowing we’ve contributed to the preservation of this beautiful villa and grounds.
This year, we’ve produced two designs for the mothers’ day brunch fundraising event. Wonder which they will choose?
If you would like to treat your mum to brunch this May 8th, you can call the box office at 408 961-5858 or keep an eye on their website’s calendar.
We worked with a new printer, PrintingForLess.com, to make this referral card.
Referral cards are difficult. They need to be small enough that someone would carry it around. Nice enough that people will pass them onto their friends. They need to track the giver and the receiver so that the rewards can be passed on and so you can track your ROI.
Our client has been handing these out all holiday season. We’re looking forward to finding out if they do bring in new clients – it’s a great offer for the giver and receiver, so they should.
What could be more fun than working with Halo Blow Dry Bars and HPD Public Relations? Halo is using their clients as models. MPS got to shoot the models at Halo while the stylists were working on them. We now have a library of unique photos our client will have on hand for use in print or online marketing.
Have you been to MenloVille? It’s a fantastic shop on Valpariso Avenue between Alameda de las Pulgas and El Camino in Menlo Park. It’s great for gifts and for high-end re purposed items. We recently did a photoshoot there and then created this full-page magazine ad. See the ad in the November issue of Gentry (we did the SkinSpirit ad too!)
