I love design. I’m a design junkie. Some might even say design whore. And I can honestly say that I’ve not come across a body of work that has literally blown my mind in longer than I can remember. And then today happened and I found Hammerpress.

Hammerpress was founded in 1994 by Brady Vest who was busily turning the four-year-plan into the four-and-a-half-year-plan at Kansas City Art Institute. Years later, what started as a fascination for letterpress has developed into a full-blown business specializing in wedding invitations, custom artwork for restaurant chains, CD packaging, corporate identity, posters and art prints as well as a growing line of stationary products.

I, personally, would like to say Thank You, Brady. Thank You very much. Here are just a few of the pieces that caught my eye…
