    Music City Pizza Menu
    Music City Pizza needed menus so we designed a double LP record jacket that would open up to reveal the menu inside. A real record company printed off several hundred units of our custom LP jacket. We used brass fasteners to install clear plastic sleeves on the inside. (The idea was to make the menu easy to update without having to re-print the whole thing!)

    T-SHIRT & POSTER

    This client pays cash for used books on college campuses and resells them at great prices on the internet. They needed a t-shirt and poster that would appeal to college students, so we created a pulp-fiction style poster that is hard to overlook!

    T-SHIRT & POSTER

    This client pays cash for used books on college campuses and resells them at lower prices on the internet. They needed a t-shirt and poster that would appeal to college students, so we thought outside the box with a cheeky Victorian-era look.

    Ram Truck Wallscape
    The Richards Group (Ram Truck’s ad agency of record) hired us to create 2 poster designs that would be blown up HUGE to be hung on buildings in downtown Dallas. This design was made to promote the new new Ram Trucks that would be on display at the Texas State Fair. Fortunately, we did not have to create the art actual size!

    Chrysler wanted to promote their new line of Ram Trucks in Dallas using the same style of vintage illustration that we recently created for some State Parks poster art. So we came up with another big idea—big enough to cover the side of a building!

    DIRECT MAIL POSTCARD SERIES

    A very creative photographer hired us to help him promote his biz. He had a great idea for a direct mail campaign: send out one postcard a month all year long so folks could collect all the quirky postcards bearing his photography. We created a look for his web site, postcards and a matching pouch to keep the collected cards.

    BEER COASTER SET

    Toby Keith needed to promote his new song “I Love This Bar.” DreamWorks Records hired us to create a promotional kit that could be mailed to radio stations and publicists. We produced a set of coasters with Toby’s photo on the back and a cool logo we developed on the front. The coasters became an immediate collectible item and even started selling on e-bay!

    T-SHIRT & COFFEE MUG

    When we re-tooled and renamed our design firm, we wanted to give our clients and friends a keepsake bearing our new logo. T-shirts and coffee mugs were the perfect gift items for design geeks, friends and fans.

    T-SHIRT, POSTER & BOOKLET

    A few years ago, some companies in New York and L.A. seemed to have negative impressions of designers from the South. So we did an experiment: we bought 2 cell phones—one with a N.Y. area code, and one with an L.A. area code. We created an alter ego called Paper Monkeys and never mentioned where we were from. When they saw our work, they invited us to meet, assuming that we were local designers. Once we met in person, we spilled the beans & got a good laugh.

    DIRECT MAIL PROMOTION

    Our client asked us to create a direct mail piece that would stand out from all other junk mail. We started with this idea: ”Hey, your genius is showing!” Then we created a mask with nerd glasses and a forehead. The forehead could be flipped open to show a brain with the sales pitch printed on it. We made a clear mailer so the comical mask would be seen as soon as the mail landed on the recipient’s desk. People started wearing the masks at work... they were a big hit!

    BASEBALL CARD COLECTOR SET

    When a record company hired us to help them promote their roster of artists, we started thinking about our old collections of baseball cards. Cards are fun to collect and trade. They have cool photos and interesting stats. Why not create collectible cards of the various artists on Universal Music Group’s roster? The project was a grand slam success.
