What made you want to work at Envelopments?

When going through the interview process at Envelopments I was drawn initially to the positive, energetic atmosphere and family-like work environment. Everyone here is so close and I knew I could see myself fitting in and contributing to the design team. What excited me most was the opportunity to work with a team that I knew I could learn so much from. In the time that I’ve been here I’ve absorbed so much design knowledge and am excited to keep developing my own style and growing as a designer.

What made you want to work at Envelopments?

I fell in love with the family-like culture the moment I walked into Envelopments. I was also really inspired by the Envelopments Design Team and the work they were producing. I have always appreciated stationery, and when I heard about the opportunity, I was so excited to use my passion for typography and print design alongside such a talented team.

Tom Johns: “Mr. Whatever it Takes!”

Sometimes, life catches us off guard!  Hummm, sounds like something a basketball coach might say.

Tom was just that, a great coach!  He gave 150% of himself whether it was coaching high school basketball or his teammates here at Envelopments.

How crazy is it…a guy who never gets sick, gets the flu and the next thing ya know he is on life support.  Then not here.

We are very saddened by this loss of a great man. A teammate, a coach, a mentor, a father, a husband, a brother, a son, a friend.

In the last five years, since you joined our team…our Envelopments family, we have worked together to build a top notch company.  Your spirit and vitality will live on as we honor you and the time we have had together.

Tom, we will all miss your smiling face!

One of Tom’s favorite quotes:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Font Men Film…Font-tastic!

Font Men – SXSW 2014 Official Selection from dress code on Vimeo.

Our world is full of messages battling for your attention. We are all affected by fonts.  Where ever we look, from A to Z, we rely on typography to help clarify the message, enable legibility, and emote a sense of what is.

The Font Men, Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones, are featured in this short film shedding light on their unexpected path to working together and becoming one of the most successful and well respected type design studios in the world.

At Envelopments we are font-oholics and just can’t get enough. You’ll see how much we love to play with type in our invitation, web, marketing designs…and even some of the custom tattoos worn by our crew.

So for us, it was a joy to have Font Men show up as an official selection for the 2014 SXSW Film Festival.
