Lead Graffiti

My old advertising professor Ray is now running his own sweet letterpress studio called Lead Graffiti. They do beautiful invites, cards, menus, posters, and just about anything else you can dream up.

There are lots of things that I learned from Ray in school like the words to U2's Who's Going to Ride Your Wild Horses, and the benefits of having an all black wardrobe. Some of the most important lessons he's imparted on me are
-to "get off your ass" and do something
-the importance of constructive discontent
-to do things that take guts

I decided I wanted to do something different for the mix tape exchange covers, and was super excited when Ray let Melissa and I set some type and helped us print some CD envelopes.

Here are a couple photos from the day

I don't want to show the final product because I want people to be suprised when they receive them in the mail.

I have been waiting for this post all morning, hoping to be able to see the finished product... oh well, I have till the end of the day to decide right? by the way I'm loving that awesome photo you took of me. A great day! Can't wait for 'Home Sweet Home'
