Prashanti Kanagasabai, Business Development Manager for The Australian Trade Commission (AusTrade) in New York City hired ERA404 to design the booklet to accompany their event, The Australian Designers Collection. The fashion show in January will unveil Australian fashion designers to the United States and is part of the Ford SuperModels of the World event. The wiro-bound booklet features 16 designers with bios and samples of their work and was printed at Hudson Printing in Long Island City.
era404 worked with a prominent NYC-based Investment Company and Creative Director, William Imboden, to create a 60-page, leather-bound book to document the culmination of a year’s worth of global investment research. The book featured 35 charts, 12 original illustrations (including a three-spread, full-color rendering of Tom Sawyer on the Mississippi), laser-etched cherry wood medallions and tons of research information and photography.
As the book has not yet been produced, an NDA prohibits us from including information about the investment company (you’ll notice the portfolio images have the identity blurred out), however we’ve added this piece to our portfolio and Creative Director, Don Citarella, has included large, high-resolution images in his blog. Our client is excited to move forward with this project in 2008.
Rand Burrus, of RANDM, hired ERA404 to design and production manage an invitation for Hello Kitty’s 30th Anniversary Kickoff Party at the Rockefeller Center, in New York.
The resulting pop-up card and accessories won the AGC‘s Showcase Award in 2003.
Brooklyner Adam Goldstein, of the Brooklyn Wine Company, hired ERA404 to design the labels for three of his new wines, Feliz Red, Feliz White and Grand Army Meritage. Illustration for the pieces was provided by Brooklyn’s own, Ryan Seslow. The labels have been applied to the first bottling available now exclusively at RedWhiteAndBubbly.com, also designed by era404, as well as T-shirts currently being sold at Brooklyn Industries (www.brooklynindustries.com).
