Congratulations to our Chili Champ, Mike Bellamy, winner of the 2017 ChaseDesign Chili Cook-off!
The ChaseDesign holiday mailer starts its journey a year or more before it arrives in your home. In 2016, the mailer was the collaborative effort of designers and production specialists who took the idea from a simple paper prototype, studied how it would fold and open, hand-cut refined prototypes, did type studies, chose paper stock, and designed an envelope to carry the finished piece around the world.
For the Genesee Studio's front panel, Senior Designer Riva Powers celebrates the full moon in all its majesty, aligning with February’s full moon in real time.
The details: photography in the background and a manipulated watercolor for the moon texture.
Inspiration for the front panel at our Genesee Studio comes from many sources. Reflecting on a classic work of art, Senior Design Director Bill Finch notes, “I have always been struck by the unashamed nature of Leonardo da Vinci’s L’Uomo Vitruviano, undraped and unembarrassed for hundreds of years. But even so, it seemed appropriate… and compassionate… to prepare him for a Central New York winter..."
The 2016 Holiday Party was adorned by bows and bow ties, beard glitter, masks and laughter, good food, good music and wonderful company. Our thanks to Laure Lillie for documenting the good times at the Skaneateles Country Club.
With our latest front panel, Designer Jade Cole encourages us to reach higher, “with a nod to the recent super moon.”
And below, the new panel in its natural habitat...
Of our new front panel, Senior Designer Riva Powers writes, “This concept celebrates apple picking season with a nod to vintage illustration and graphic styles and a wink to Chase’s history, with the line ‘For Over 50 Years.’ Any chance to break out the watercolors is welcome – both the apples and type are hand painted. I am also very inspired by vintage typography so I was glad to be able to incorporate that into the design as well.”
