Last Thursday evening my coworker Roger and I attended Index, a comprehensive design fair by AIGA hosted at the Urban Outfitters Jharoka in the Navy Yard. There we met with paper vendors, printers and other members of the graphic design community to browse and learn about the latest goods and services available in the industry. The vendors included Astro-Dynamic, Bentley, CodeMyDesigns.com, Finch Paper, Mohawk Fine Papers, Millmar Paper/Xtreme Coated Cover, Monadnock Paper Mills, RMH Image Group, Wausau Paper and Yupo.
Interestingly, some vendors already knew of our With Love, Philadelphia XOXO™ ad campaign and described it as ‘the best thing you’ve done for the city.’
We also greeted the paper supplier (Finch Paper) and the printers of our very own annual report (Bentley), who fondly remembered our company.
Below are some photos of the Urban Outfitters facility down at the Navy Yard. The intricate wood carvings, beautiful fabric, and industrial leftovers make for an eye-catching, amazing venue. I even stumbled upon a secret room full of fantastic yarn spools. SHHH!
