Wink is honored to be a part of this year’s ARTCRANK. Our letterpress poster was printed by the fine folks at Spark Letterpress.
Our poster, Metro Loop, celebrates the two great cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, noting both their similarities and differences, especially from a cycling perspective. Fellow Wink alum, Phillip Clark, joined us in this poster collaboration.
Although the opening night has come and gone, posters are still on display and for sale through May 4, 2013, for $40 each at One on One Bicycle Studio and Handsome Cycles in Minneapolis.

With Wink’s signature wit & creativity, they helped create a book for Cheryl Najafi. A rural Missouri native decorating tables with cherry-tree branches to her current and much-anticipated dinners and parties that always include a “cherry on the top” surprise for her guests, Cheryl Najafi teaches others to break the rules of “proper” entertaining.
Najafi inspires hosts to infuse their own personal style, humor, and whimsy into any occasion. Most people put all of their efforts into celebrating big events, but she believes it’s the little things in life that nurture us, making moments matter—and memorable. With You’re So Invited, she shares her fresh approach to entertaining to get you planning your next—or maybe your first!—party without fretting or fussing, so you can relax and have as much fun as your guests!

Wink was tapped by the Minneapolis-based Minnetonka Moccasin Company to re-imagine the heritage footwear brand from head to toe. Like several iconic heritage brands born in the heartland of America (think Redwing Shoes, Duluth Pack and Faribault Woolen Mills), prides itself on its decades-long tradition of craftsmanship and quality at an honest value.
The brand identity and website were launched in February. The site, developed in collaboration with strategic partner Good People Branding, bridges the rich history between the family-owned company that was established in 1946, and today’s rapidly-growing global brand. The refresh helps bring the iconic heritage brand to the forefront of today’s fashion conversation. To view more of the work click here.

They were looking to create a safe and worry-free egg option to consumers. Their answer was Pasteurization. The branding needed to be consumer friendly and memorable. Thus, the idea was to embrace the egg by giving it a unique personality that stood out from the rest of competitors in the market.
