Here’s a selection of projects, including new websites, business cards, website redesign, logos, bookmarks, and flyers.

  • Business Cards – R-T Design
    Business Cards - R-TDesign.com

    Hot off the press: R-T Design business cards.

    You want your cards to stand out in the pile, and a little personality on the back will do the trick.  These have the righteous, “I know what I’m doing side” and the counterpoint, the individualistic graphic on the other side.

  • 4th Aniversario Poster
    Libros Schmibros 4th Aniversario poster - R-TDesign.com

    Libros Schmibros is celebrating it’s fourth birthday this August.  12,000 books into hands since 2010!

    This year we’ve added the Metro info and a QR code.  We’ve also stepped up our game with a MailChimp campaign which incorporated the flyer image, text description (so that something shows up as a summary in folks email clients), a link to the membership / donation page and a payment button.  MailChimp is practically magical, for managing campaigns.

  • David Kipen – Public Figure
    David Kipen I Print - Broadcast - Public - Conversation  - R-TDesign.com

    Busy public figures like David Kipen need to have a web presence, but often cannot spare the time to figure it all out, and make it a reality. We can help, contact us!

  • Hotel Mariachi – Book Release
    Hotel Mariachi - Book Release

    When you produce an iconic work, such as Hotel Mariachi, it is a good idea to tie-up the corresponding domain, in this case HotelMariachi.com .

    This site functions as a hub for interest in the recently published scholarly work.  Links to events, press and social networks are featured on the site.  The book cover image was used in the header for unambiguous identification by the interested public.

  • Business Cards – Libros Schmibros
    Libros Schmibros Business Cards - R-TDesign.com

    Libros Schmibros Lending Library, located on Mariachi Plaza in Boyle Heights needed some stand out business cards.  Cards that would help to get their mission across, at a glance.  Since opening in 2010, Libros has put over 18,000 books into hands, and more importantly, in front of eyeballs.

    This historically immigrant community has always had a deep and abiding love of literature and the arts.  The grandparents of both founders lived in Boyle Heights.  Now, these people with deep, old roots in the community have come back, to share their love of and commitment to literature.

  • the Bookmarks, Redux
    LS bookmarks redux
    The now super-saturated CMYK bookmarks

    Online pre-press proofs?  Oh heck yeah!  The first batch of bookmarks was not saturated enough, after being converted from RGB to CMYK.  So, here we go again–super saturated and gloss this time.  Better get out those Industrial Extra-fine point Sharpies!  Rookie mistake!

  • Jewelry Toolery – Arts Education / Small Business
    Jewelry Toolery - R-TDesign.com

    Jewelry Toolery , a local arts education small business, had a quite tasty HTML site but needed to be able to easily update content.

    The site was transitioned to WordPress.com, and now provides easy-to-edit basic information, a contact form and a dynamic announcements / workshops page.  Now, the site owner doesn’t have to worry about updating the software or plugins.
