Design + Print: Bookmark for the First Lady

Even though I’m a card-carrying liberal, I was very excited when an old friend and client asked us to work on a bookmark for Laura Bush. Steve used to work as a concert promoter, and we created many great posters for the shows he booked at the Dixie’s/Saji-Ya stage at Grand Old Day. Now he’s …
