Type A Press: Brand Refresh and Web Design

I recently had the opportunity to work with Chelsey Nichol of Type A Press located in McMinnville Oregon. Chelsey owns and runs a letterpress print shop in historical down town McMinnville. She loves all things nautical and wanted to incorporate and anchor and a ship into her branding. Chelsey chose the color scheme and left the rest up to me. I loved all of the history behind her little shop so I tried to keep her branding looking simple and classic while giving it a modern spin.

For the website and blog I first came up with something more typical and simple - large rotating photos with a white background. Chelsey really wanted to incorporate more of the graphic elements of her brand so we went back to the drawing board and came up with something more lighthearted and playful. I really like the way it turned out. I also really like that Chelsey will be printing my personal business cards SOON!! Yay! Can't wait to hold them in my hands.
