Oakwood Industries, LLC

Catalog Design & Layout

It has arrived! I just received the NEW Oakwood Industries, LLC catalog… and was so excited that I had to take a moment to share. This project has been one of the most extensive Bb design has had the opportunity to work on. We started fresh with all new photography. Bb design teamed up with vagabond photography for a photoshoot. {check out that post here} It made the design & layout so much easier to have such amazing photos to work with. From there the single shots of each image were extracted and everything organized to work with their collections. Of course we had to put some cool details throughout to make it stand out from the crowd.

You gotta check out their stuff… not only is it quality, will last forever {well, they do guarantee their furniture for 10 years, amazing!} and they have some very beautiful pieces. I have enjoyed working with the Oakwood team and am thankful for this experience. Check out the photos below and you might just keep Oakwood in mind this Christmas for that special someone who is hard to shop for! Stop by their showroom – HWY 136, Memphis, Missouri – to see what’s new and what you can get on your list.

Mid-States Catalog

Client: Mid-States Manufacturing & Engineering – Milton, IA
Project: Full Product Catalog update
Description: Mid-States had a specific idea in mind – to use a drawing of a wharehouse with their products being used instead of an actual pic. They would then use this drawing as a banner & the cover for their catalog. I worked with a talented artist & graphic designer, Karri Feeney on this project. We each took part of the products that needed to be incorporated into the drawing and went to work. We illustrated the entire thing using illustrator and learned a lot along the way.The next step was to layout the rest of the catalog which we again split down the middle… see all our hard work and the final products below.
Notes: These projects were completed a while back… and the Mid-States team was a pleasure to work with. We started with logo, business cards, weather-proof product stickers and then moved on to the banner & catalog.They all had great ideas to incorporate into each project. All of these were definitely a team effort and I think that things turned out really well.
