This sweepstake sees New York-based Kaufmann Mercantile, who've donated a whole bunch of accessories, team up with eco-friendly furniture makers Environment, online creative magazine Design Milk…and MOO! Jaime Derringer, Design Milk's Founder and Executive Editor, has specially designed a suite of MOO stationery as part of the ‘essential office’ on offer to one lucky winner.
Keeping it simple
The focus of the giveaway is on the meeting of style and functionality, and Jaime has made every effort to bring this out in the Luxe Letterheads, MiniCards and Postcards she’s created. “Design Milk’s brand is very distinct, so I wanted these new pieces to really reflect that. I used black and white for a modern, minimalist look and created a complementary set of Postcards using my own artwork,” she says.
Jaime feels a well-designed suite of stationery is a crucial addition to any working environment. Not only does it signal professionalism, but it’s a pretty good way to make a client feel all warm and fuzzy inside. “Nothing feels more special than receiving a handwritten letter or thank you note in the mail – especially these days, when it’s a rarity," she says. "You tend to appreciate and value those businesses who take the time to write a note instead of shooting off an email.” We couldn’t agree more!
On the horizon
We’ve seen some inspiring creations come through our printers from Design Milk over the past few years, and they tell us they’re now planning to make some Flyers and Luxe Postcards for an upcoming exhibition. Brimming with ideas and design finds from around the world as they are, we can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
