A few weeks ago we had house guests in from Baltimore for a few days. And just yesterday, I received a great little thank you note from them designed by Knock Knock. I had never seen the Knock Knock products before so I had to go to the website and check out what they are all about. I have to tell you, as a designer that works for a rather large social expressions company, whose primary product is ink on paper greetings, we should have done something like this a long time ago.
Knock Knock’s entire line of products is based on the concept of “fill in the blank.” Even their tag line on their logo says it, “Multiple choice correspondence, because life is fill-in-the-blank.” I love the concepts, everything from paper “Tweet” notes for the Twitter challenged, to “Top reasons I must have sex with you.” I just spent about 45 minutes going through the web site and have a whole list of products I intend to order from them.
The thank you card that we got is well designed. It has a great color pallet, it looks like nicer stationary without being to over the top, the editorial is fun and light. The entire piece has a semi-retro feel without relying to heavily on retro shtick. This is really fun stuff.
