New York designer Wade Jeffree designed it, we built it.

“Assembled in the United States, with high-quality materials sourced from trusted vendors, each book is crafted with meticulous care and consideration. Soft-to-the-touch fibermark covers, spot gloss deboss, post-consumer recycled 80lb premium blend paper, and dot grid matrices all add up to the perfect formula for inspired productivity” — Action Method.

Anthony Burrill x The Designers Foundry Auction http://thesuburbsdesign.com/2016/10/26/anthony-burrill-x-the-designers-foundry-auction/ http://thesuburbsdesign.com/2016/10/26/anthony-burrill-x-the-designers-foundry-auction/#respond Wed, 26 Oct 2016 16:47:06 +0000 http://thesuburbsdesign.com/?p=954 Anthony Burrill x The Designers Foundry Auction

We’re excited to announce our work with The Designer’s Foundry building the countdown silent auction system for their special collaboration with legendary type designer Anthony Burrill.

To mark the release of FUNCTION typeface by Anthony Burrill, TDF and Burrill commissioned Thomas Mayo to craft a special woodblock alphabet. Each woodblock is an edition of one, a true collectors item. Each block is 15cm (5.9 inch) in height, hand made by Mayo in London. The woodblocks are wrapped in organic tissue paper and packed in a foam lined luxury kraft box with red foil detailing.

Pottery Tea Cups http://thesuburbsdesign.com/2016/08/22/pottery-tea-cups/ Mon, 22 Aug 2016 11:51:41 +0000 http://thesuburbsdesign.com/?p=861 The Suburbs co-founder Tim is obsessed with pottery. Hopefully in the near future a full blown business can be born out of it (watch this space!) but for the time-being though we’re pretty swamped with Design work with little time for making a mess with clay. Here are some of Tim’s creations which we released through Informal Tea and are now unfortunately sold out.

Check out more of Tim’s pottery work here and here.

TDF is a hand-picked team of type designers from all around the world and have licensed fonts to major international clients such as Nike, Harper Collins, Dolce and Gabbana, EA Games and the BBC.

We helped TDF to impliment a new homepage design, streamline search functionalities and develop a more user focused navigation which could be simplified on the bold and graphic product pages.

Informal Tea Co http://thesuburbsdesign.com/2015/08/31/informal-tea-co-2/ Mon, 31 Aug 2015 02:26:48 +0000 http://blog.thesuburbs.co.nz/?p=555 We’ve just launched a refreshed website for our organic tea company, Informal Tea Co.

The brief was to improve upon the existing website with a new design which was more refined and customer focused on both desktop and mobile.

The existing site was showing it’s age technologically speaking so a key element of the re-design was to make use of modern technologies for improved SEO, UI/UX, speed and customer flow. The design looks to make better use of the blog to build site content and integrates new features such as customer reviews to help boost sales and we’ve planned for future functionality to be easily integrated through the new tabbed product pages.

Check out the website.
