SPRING 18 VM Concept @westfieldwhitfordcity // We always try to make all sides of our VM displays visually appealing but often the front side is still stronger. Let me know what you think...the first photo is the “reverse” side and the second is the “front”...let me know which you like better and why! No wrong answers! #designmerchants #visualmerchandising #westfieldwhitfordcity

It was over 7 years ago now that I sent my graphic designer @breemateljan a photo of some typewriter keys as a starting point to create a logo for Design Merchants. I still love it today and our new business cards continue to keep it simple but deceptively so! These babies are letterpress on 530gsm with die-cut rounded corners 😍 designed again by Bree and printed by @hungryworkshop For me it’s just as much how they feel (or make you feel) as how they look! #designmerchants #visualmerchandising #businesscarddesign #letterpresslove #vintagetypewriter #prophireperth #designmerchantsworkshop
