Terrapin Stationers Engraved Stationery
Graphic Design, Engraving, Illustration
 
While Terrapin makes their products the good ol' fashioned way, their designs are anything but. Founded since 1913 in New York City, Ted Harrington and his team produce some of the finest irreverent stationery in the world. Eye catching graphics and punchy slogans accompany their high-quality, meticulous production. Now produced in New Haven, CT, Terrapin continues to humor its faithful clients such as Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, Club Monaco (to name a few), and countless of other individuals and small businesses.
 
Some illustrated and typographic work I've created for the brand to note: The iconic Indian Motorcycle (available at the Marc by Marc Jacobs store in Soho NYC and featured on dozens of publications worldwide), You Fixed Me Heart (for Marc by Marc Jacobs and available on terrapinstationers.com), Lowrider and Los Fucking Angeles (for Epaulet), Mammoth (for David Wood), and the Holiday Airstream. Other clients I've created work for include Marc Jacobs International, Tory Burch, Todd Snyder, Club Monaco, Fallon Jewelry, David Wood, Helmut Lang, Leather Soul, Mirador, Paul+Williams, Greats Brand, Starwood Hotels, The Primary Essentials, Moda Operandi, The Row, and A$AP Rocky.
 
Responsibilities during my tenure as their designer include designing custom illustrations, digital typesetting, photo-realistic mock ups for client pitches, and prepping artwork to be approved, printed, and/or engraved. Examples: custom business cards, baronial notecards, NY Fashion Week invites, wedding invites, look books, Terrapin collaboration look books, and maintenance of the e-comm product images.
