Infinite Lunar Tracking Device

We are proud to release the Infinite Lunar Tracking Device. This KeeganMeegan creation has been circling our brains (and hearts) for a while. It was inspired by our infinite wonder and awe of the mass of rock we call the moon. We continue to be interested in it’s phases and the affects it has not only on the way we see things, but also on how we feel things. We’ve created a participatory keepsake calendar that can be used, over and over, every year. As the month and day changes, so does the phase of the moon. You can track it by watching the lunar phases in the sky or when life (and/or the clouds) makes it difficult to stay connected to the moon, you can use our Lunar Art Print cheat sheet to get back on track. Available for sale over here. Sized at 5 x 7.5″

Like the natural and cosmic worlds, this calendar will allow for some bits of ambiguity as well as some precise tracking… We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Each infinite calendar comes with a stand and a small art print that contains the dates and times of the Phases of the Moon for that year – New Moon, Full Moon, First and Thirds Quarters. The chart was converted to Pacific Time (since that’s where we were when this lunar device was conceived). Every year a new chart, along with a new tiny art print, will be produced for you to reference and to replace the previous year’s.

The Daylight Studio

Our neighbor The Daylight Studio posted a great review of the business cards we printed for their talented crew. Here is a small excerpt written by Tyler Davis of Daylight. Also check out the cool video they made during their press check at the bottom of this post

As our Daylight team has grown, we’ve felt the need for new business cards to reflect our fresh new group.  To some this is a quick and simple project, and certainly not a blog-worthy one.  But we at Daylight refused to take the easy route.  Instead of reprinting an outdated design, we started back at square one.  When it comes to your own business, nothing is good enough and this project was held against that high bar.  A growing company that sells design needs to present attractive cards when meeting new people (and potential clients!), so we went the extra mile and had beautiful letterpressed cards printed here in Southeast Portland.

Fuzz Interactive

Fuzz Interactive, rising stars in the design and web development community approached us to assist in making a show stopping business card.  The final product is one of our favorites. They were printed on 220# Lettra Pearl White with a Red 032 flood with an additional deboss pattern on the front. It brings new meaning to a tactile feel.

Once they came to pick-up their cards, the topic came up of our home built website we’ve relied on for far too long. We commissioned Fuzz to take on the task of bringing us into the modern world, giving us integrated eCommerce and mobile functionality. We’re so very happy and humbled to be featured in their portfolio next to Industrypdx, Wacom, Intel and Adidas.

Also a big high five to Dan Cronin who did a stellar job photographing our portfolio.
