Wendy MacNaughton is such a talent and her new book, Meanwhile, in San Francisco: The City in its Own Words looks to be a very special collection of illustrations and notations, capturing all the corners and characters of her home city — from the library to an intersection to a few moments with a city bus driver. Bravo!

We created invitations and illustrated table signs for Eve & Nick’s wedding on the rooftop terrace at the Gramercy Park Hotel. Great to see it featured on Style Me Pretty this past November! You can view the full gallery there.

Eve writes: “A brunch-themed cocktail hour included egg and cheese crostini, french toast bites, and mimosas, bellinis and Bloody Marys. In lieu of table numbers, we assigned each table a New York City landmark, illustrated and calligraphed by Paperfinger, who also designed our invitations. We set locations based on the guests seated at each table — for example, we sat at the Museum of Natural History table, the New York landmark where we got engaged, and in a winking nod to our sense of humor, we sat the groom’s high school friends, all native New Yorkers, at the Times Square table.”

I am so drawn to the bold design and concept behind the branding and packaging for Lupains bakery, created by design firm Les bons faiseurs.

Finally took some time to explore Long Island City, Queen’s 5 POINTZ. So much lettering inspiration!

Marc Johns is still at it and doing it well. Another good one from his steady stream of dear and quirky drawings.
