I had the pleasure of meeting Keir Whitaker when we were both a bit too early to Brooklyn Beta 2014 and bumped into each other at the neighboring coffee shop. Since then, we've continued to bump into each other at conferences and online. When he asked me to collaborate with Shopify on a design for the Event Apart series, I was already on board. Serena Ngai helped to art direct, and the fine folks at Holstee stepped up to printing the final design. I designed this large with a pointed pen and lots of calligraphic flourishes, so the printing was not an easy task. They knocked it out of the park, with perfect registration and gorgeous color.
If you happen to be at An Event Apart events, look out for Shopify and see if you can grab a coaster!
