Carpenter Collective

10 Year Anniversary

In the Spring of 2009, in the middle of a recession, Tad Carpenter officially kicked open the doors to start a new design and branding studio. Over the last ten years, our team team has expanded along with our passion for design. We love design. We love the clients we get the opportunity to work with and truly hope we get to continue doing this for 100 more years. Thank you to everyone and anyone who has ever worked with us, collaborated with us, inquired to work with us or supported us in anyway at all. Thank you!

In ten years of business, we never once had a business card or to be honest any real stationery or marketing materials of any kind. For our ten year anniversary, we decided to change that. Our new business cards are letterpressed on Crane’s Lettra paper by our longtime friends and collaborators, Vahalla Studios. Each designer in our studio has different artwork on the back which is part of our larger brand pattern.

“We are a design and brand studio that brings brands to life through strategy and strong visual storytelling. Our process is artistic, effective and honest. But to be honest, we just want to have a little fun together you know?”

We ship quite a few packages to clients and collaborators, as well as fulfilling online orders from our website. We wanted to design custom packaging tape that would work cohesively with our other brand materials. The tape is 1-color design on white will hopefully add a little joy to your mailbox when your package arrives.
