Hot Off the Press: Marin Humane Society, Sure Skateboards and More

August 28, 2013

How often have you heard someone claim they’re not affected by advertising, or that they ignore commercials and think society is too consumer-oriented? All of that is certainly debatable, but working here at PsPrint, I see marketing all day, and some of it I just love – the design, the message, the product, all of it. This week’s collection of inspirational printing orders contains promo pieces that a curmudgeon would love, from Lindsey Campbell Design’s whimsical dental practice business card to Marin Humane Society’s Woodstock-esque postcard handout to Rob Rodrigues’ sticker design advocating skateboarding’s “zero emissions.” All these examples of promotional printing are – especially in the case of the cinnamon rolls on Mariposa Baking’s postcard – a feast for the eyes. And isn’t that the point of marketing – to attract attention? “Hot Off the Print” is on a roll these days with amazing art and design – take a look at last week’s edition, which spotlighted wall-worthy poster marketing.
