But I have a new website to show off. This is our design studio, Tackett+Barbaria. It’s the same company, same vision, same commitment to compelling design and collaborative process. Just a new website with a few new tricks. Come over and say hi…and I’ll see you back here on Monday with a fresh cup of coffee.



keep these in mind

 KEEP THESE IN MIND  posters from the folks at Go to Public School. Designed by Jay Sauceda and screen printed on 18×24 off-white 100lb cougar opaque “manila folder” style paper. Hand numbered and made deep in the Heart of Texas, and yours on sale (for a short time!) for only $10. 00 each (or four for $33.00).  They’re all clever, but I do like the first one best. Because you know it’s true…we’re all in this together.

design relief

When a disaster happens in another part of the world, we watch helplessly, and perhaps make a donation to American Red Cross. Unless you’re a designer, then you make a poster, or a t-shirt. It’s really a two-fer, in my opinion. The design community comes together to raise money, and the creative engagement heals and helps. And you get the bonus points for giving a gift of art for the holidays.

First up, Print Aid NYC:

I Still Love NY T shirt from Sebastian Errazuriz:

From Cool Material (the design is also available in a notebook):

And from 20×200 (lots of great photos to choose from, but this is my favorite):


la distributrice

Montreal’s La Distributrice is the smallest coffee shop in North America, located at 408 Mont-Royal East, close of the corner street of Saint-Denis (just in case you’re in the neighborhood). La Distributrice offers espresso, americano and latté directly on the street. Identity and packaging by designers Gabriel Lefebvre and Rachel Lecompte. Lovely.

slingshot cold brew

I love great packaging, especially packaging that’s typographic, and I love cold brew. So that would make this a triple shot. Slingshot Coffee Company branding and packaging, designed by Dapper Paper in Raleigh, NC.

A few gems from Daily DishonestyIt’s a lovely little project of lovely little white (and sometimes colorful) lies from graphic designer Lauren Hom.  And no, it’s not true that I have used these myself. Well, perhaps a little true.
