Barkers, Forever Young
The Barkers are a kick ass Chicago based husband & wife creative team.
And that's put simply, because lets be honest, they are so much more. I am so glad to see how much these two have grown their business since our collaborations together; from photo duo just starting to dabble in motion - to now, running a full fledge creative studio. I'm so impressed <3
"Nicole's eye for layout and design is as thoughtful and fun as it is tasteful. We’ve worked with her on several promotional items over the last two years and couldn’t be happier with the way each turned out." - Chris & Kristin Barker
It's always exciting to find creative ways to pull the Barkers bold personalities into whatever we're working on & this "Field Notes Promo" project was no exception. A punched out "B" was one of my favorite details we decided to use, both in this promotion and several others in order to help build a strong brand recognition. We kept the design playful, youthful and quirky to match their photography. This promo in particular was actually a notebook: there are blank pages inside for the reciever to use :)
Over the years working together, we designed several emailers together. Here's just one of my favorites.
Shimmery. Gold. Envelope. Have I mentioned I freaking love these guys? Our very first promotion together and one of my favorites to boot. Taking a strong "High School Memory Book" vibe, we had a lot of fun with the details on our #StayGold mailer: from a custom postage stamp to custom gold binding, a belly band with tear off postcard and hand lettered envelopes. These are the kind of projects that make me love what I do!
