This piece for Monogram Design showcases the studio’s attention to elegance and detail.

15229

Based on the book, No Plot? No Problem!: A Low-Stress, High-Velocity Guide to Writing a Novel in 30 Days, this kit takes the tone and task of inspiring writers one step further. It includes a clam shell box, inspiration cards immersed in tongue-in-cheek tone, a Noveling Affidavit, a progress calendar, and other humorous elements to keep a writer on task, all designed in bold colors and a retro-styled typographic treatment that aptly underscores the humor in the kit, and emphasizes the brand tone in the original book. Designed by Rise-and-Shine Studio.
