Creative Works Conference 2016


It's time to "Build with Conviction" as designers and creatives from around the country are gathering for the Creative Works Conference this week.

In Memphis, Tennessee October 6th through the 8th, the Creative Works Conference is assembling some super talented individuals for education and fun. There are going to be great talks and workshops on graphic design, blogging, illustration and a lot more related to ad and brand creation.

As part of their event, they wanted to show off their illustrated logo design for the Creative Works Conference. There was no better way to do that than custom die cut stickers. They mocked up their heart in hand design as a stand alone sticker and two separate event logos stickers in black and yellow.

There is nothing better than showing off illustrations to a group of designers with custom stickers. We are super excited and geeked out to be a sponsor for this great event and in the likes of some amazing creative companies. We wish everyone a productive and fun few days in Memphis at the Creative Works Conference.

WordCamp Orange County 2016

WordCamp Orange County will be blasting off this weekend at the University of California-Irvine in the The Cove at the Applied Innovation building. WordCamps are a great place to learn meet, talk, and immerse yourself in everything WordPress. From the absolute beginner to the hardest of hardcore developers, WordCamp Orange County will have something for everyone.

Their sticker sheet this time around is based on a space theme, and while it's simple in execution, the colors and variety of rockets have this sheet as one of our new faves around the sponsorship desk. Plus, OC WordCamp reskinned their entire WordPress version of their website in a space theme, with interactive elements and on-point branding across all of the pages and navigation. Out of this world stuff, people. Check out a sample below.

OC WordCamp even has a special Snapchat geofilter for the weekend so WordCampers can select it at The Cove to tag snaps. And from what we've heard in past editions, the OC WordCamp karaoke afterparty is legendary. Follow them at wordcampoc by searching within in the app, or use their Snapcode to them.

WordCamp Orange County will have two tracks of sessions, plus speakers, workshops and karaoke for designers and developers, bloggers and beginners, business owners and burgeoning writers.

As always, we're over the moon to be with such a interstellar group of sponsors. Check them out and see what they can offer for you if you're a WordPress aficionado.









WordCamp Ottawa 2016


WordCamp Ottawa 2016 is off and running this weekend in Canada's Capital city. This year's sticker sheet is a collection of fun and furry (glossy) Wapuu's in various maple leaf flag combinations, and a WordPress logo with the Peace Tower as part of the design. Plus, and this might be the finishing touch: a simple display of rainbow gradient text with three simple words: Code is Poetry. What a cool turn of phrase, plus a sticker sheet that's just best in class.


This WordCamp is one of a handful of gatherings that design a badge for sponsors and attendees to throw up on their social media and/or various messaging platforms. Since we're proud sponsors of WordCamps all around the world, this is an example of why we enjoy this type of event sponsorship: it touches all of the bases, including great design, motivated organizers, creative technologists and...Wapuu!

The Art of Storytelling with Tellart


Telling a story is an art form unlike any other. Whether through pictures, sound, or finding new ways through design that compels emotion and experience. Tellart designs interactive objects and immersive environments for product innovation, experiential marketing and informal learning.

Tellart is made up of designers, architects, technologists, and filmmakers that can craft an idea into reality. Tellart works with brands, museums, cultural institutions, manufacturers, and service providers to help shape products and experiences. They work with their clients through research and planning all the way through the creative process to deploying their designs.

Last month, Tellart was awarded the 2016 National Design Award in Interaction Design bestowed by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, the prize celebrates outstanding achievement in design through excellence, innovation, and enhancement of the quality of life.
"Over the sixteen years of our company’s history, our team has worked to create designs that explore the frontiers of emerging technologies. Our goal has been to communicate and engage through interactive and multisensory experiences. We see networks, computation, and sensing as equal members in a materials palette containing wood, metal, plastic and glass–all powerful means to tell a story."

Tellart also conveys their brand through custom logo stickers. They put together their logo in array of different colors with a call to action to their website.

The art of storytelling is a beautiful thing and we enjoy being able to see the stories behind stickers like Tellart. Congratulations to them.

Inspiration with The Created Co.


A lot of people need a little coffee to start the day but the real inspiration comes from what that coffee mug says. The Created Co. started to help the dreamers out there overcome the ordinary through powerful messages on drinkware. They are creating a community around their brand with their messaging and have utilized custom labels to support the inspiration spreading.

The Created Co. spent months coming up with messaging and then worked with designers to bring it to life on drinkware. They offer a variety of coffee mugs, water bottles, and tumblers. In supporting the community, they also give 10% off every order to Charity: Water, who is working towards bringing clean and safe drinking water to every person in the world.
We’re creating drinkware to inspire, connect, and empower people because many of life’s most meaningful moments occur alongside a drink. Whether that’s the early morning moments with your cup of coffee when you’re most inspired. Or connecting with your closest friends at your local coffee shop. Or maybe it’s being in the outdoors on your favorite trail through the mountains. Wherever you happen to find yourself, we want to create drinkware that wakes us up to these moments and forces us to answer this question for ourselves “What was I created for?”

We were created to help brands get their messages out in the world through custom stickers and labels. For The Created Co. we made them custom logo labels to slap on outgoing orders to spruce up the packaging of their inspirational drinkware going out the door.

The Created Co. is doing a great job putting more positivity into the world and we love being able to help spread the message through labels for packaging.
