Celebrating 90 years of Deskey.

This year Deskey is celebrating their 90th anniversary. And this afternoon, we kicked off our Deskey 90th anniversary with a little party at the noodle bar, t-shirts and fancy new nameplates…

Throughout the year Deskey will be celebrating the amazing things that have happened in the last 90 years at Deskey Branding. A lot can happen in 90 years—actually, a lot can happen with 90 of anything. We love what we do, and we want to share it with you. And because we know how amazing 90 is, we want to say thanks to you by giving back. We know that we are here because of you, and it’s time to say thank you. Join us this year on this page and on social media to follow all the ways we are celebrating this milestone.

Snazzy new 90th branded nameplates…

Follow Deskey as we celebrate 90 amazing years all year long. 😀🖐️❤️

Urban Artifact & Wildfire Pizza.

Oscar was watching us leave from our front window this afternoon…

“Hey, hey. Where are you going?” Sorry, buddy. We were heading out to walk over to have a beer at one of our favorite spots, Urban Artifact

And we wanted to finally check out their new wood-fired pizza kitchen located just across the courtyard called Wildfire Pizza Kitchen

We’ve been drooling over their photos on Instagram for a while now. We were really excited to try it. We each ordered a personal-sized pizza and cheese bread…

Cheese bread…

My Dad’s Favorite meat-za…

And Genifer’s Super Hawaiian…

Their pizza is outstanding! We’re always happy to have another great pizza place in the neighborhood. Northside is quickly becoming the best pizza neighborhood in Cincinnati. And we love it! 😀🍺🍕❤️

USL rebrands and it’s wonderful.

We were watching our FC Cincinnati play away to Pittsburgh Riverhounds. The match ended in a very uneventful 0-0 draw. But at halftime, USL unveiled their new future rebranding, and it was pretty slick…

 

As a designer who loves soccer, this would have been a dream project to work on. And it’s really well done. It’s a very nice rebranding for USL Soccer. The entire effort, everything about it feels very Premier League to me. The animations, the graphics, the fonts, the whole thing is wonderful. Well done, USL! I love how they tiered their leagues. It makes me sad that Cincinnati isn’t going to be a part of it. Because I think it’s great. I think the USL has a lot more vision than MLS. MLS has always just seemed like a huge cash grab to me. Less about the soccer, certainly less about the fans, definitely about snatching every last dollar possible. Sorry, I’m just not a fan of MLS. At all.

Here are the “highlights” from a pretty boring 0-0 draw…

 

 

But with this draw, FC Cincinnati tied a USL record by extending their undefeated streak to 22 matches. They can break the record next weekend at Nashville in the game of the regular season. 😀⚽️🏆❤️

Seen and noted.

How cute are these illustrations on the packaging for the Babyganics line of products?

We saw them at Walgreen’s and I thought they were super cute. I’m really a pretty big sucker for packaging that incorporates great illustration. 😀👏❤️
