new: Hammermill Selects

Featuring: Chico Hamilton

We're crazy about paper– what goes into it, how it performs, and what we can do to make it even better. Paper means a lot to us, but what our customers do with it means even more.
This Hammermill Selects features the inimitable Chico Hamilton in the work of one of New York City's leading boutique design agencies, OTTO NY, for Joyous Shout! records.

Exceptional Work, Exceptional Paper

The Hammermill Selects series was created to share the spirit of creative inspiration and show you the possibilities of paper. So we continuously search for the finest examples of creativity that also demonstrate what Hammermill paper can do for you and your work.

About the Work

From the outset, OTTO NY knew that they would not have big budgets for photography and illustration. OTTO NY used type as a tool to create a consistent foundation for all Joyous Shout! materials. The bold use of the font Champion, along with the diligent management of our color palette, help to identify and unify all Joyous Shout! Interactions. The brand is distinct and consistent. When you see it, you know it. When you see it again, you remember it.
