Making an impression with design
Founded in the late 19th century, Barnhart press has undergone its share of identities in its decades-long existence. To create a brand identity that could extend well into the future, we melded a contemporary look based on classic printing motifs. For example, the “b” and “p” recall plate-to-print methods, while the corporate colors are the Cyan and blacK of CMYK fame. The good folks at Graphis found this work particularly intriguing.
Being a printer, Barnhart continuously needs to prove and re-prove the impact that the printed page still possesses.
So, over the years we’ve designed multiple pieces that help them do just that. These pieces were also designed to win multiple awards. Which they did.
