Last spring I was contacted by Victionary and asked to submit a ton of product photos for a book they were putting together, Graphics Alive 2. This book is a follow up to the best selling first addition and I was elated to be in the running for the second! Duncan and I had a week full of late nights snapping photos, editing photos, and answering their questions. I am beyond thrilled to finally share with you that we are IN! Not only are we in the book, but we're the first brand featured! I always thought that even if I didn't get selected it would be an honor to be considered, you know just like being nominated for an Oscar? Though I still think that's true, it sure feels darn good to have made the cut.
I know I'm a bit biased, but this book is awesome. If you're into product design or graphics at all I think it's a must have. The cover alone would have sold me on it in the bookstore! It has a canvas, soft cover that slides inside this amazing sleeve and the eyes are holograms that appear open and shut from different angles. Here's the first page after the forward. Vivi Dot!! Unfortunately, they didn't quite get the credits right. Duncan and I did the photography. Hanna Brooks Nation created the girl images I use on my packaging and Kami Shallenberger created the very popular feather image. They also changed some of the wording for the descriptions, but ah heck who cares.
The second and third pages for Vivi dot: Duncan and I did get our names listed in our bio section in the back! Thanks for reading and sharing this exciting day with me!
