This year at the National Stationery Show, RR Design Shop is proud to present three card designs (with many more in the works) celebrating Mexican American and Latino culture. Our Cinco de Mayo, Quinceañera and our Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) cards are creative, extracting the color palettes and design inspiration from these cultural traditions. Living in San Diego, there is a tremendous design influence from Mexico — I love the bright colors used for the celebration of Quinceañera (celebrating a girl’s fifteenth birthday)— neon orange, teals and hot pinks and purples. When I was in Austin, I fell in love with the little sugar skulls and marigolds placed on altars, showcased in yellows, reds and purples. They are designed to celebrate Dia de los Muertos, a holiday on November 1+ 2; two days of remembrance of friends and family who have died. Visit us at booth 1966 to see how we are honoring many different cultures through design, typography and letterpress.

Our new, beautiful catalogs are printed! Our design folds to fit into an A9 envelope (very convenient for mailings) and opens to reveal our whole collection of 72 typographically inspired greeting cards. All of the photography is by Conrad Firestein, my business partner and fiancé. We collaborated on the images over the last six months: many afternoon photo shoots, styling our letterpressed cards with dishes, flowers, shadowboxes, and small, fun, found objects. The images are also works of art, and will be used throughout the year in our promo materials. April 22-28th is National Stationery Week in the UK — a weeklong celebration of paper, writing and stationery! It would be great to have a celebration of all things paper here in the US, but that’s what the National Stationery show is all about, and we are happy to be participants. The show is fast approaching and we are excited!
