We're always really excited to see the revival of craft in this digital age. Too often to we depend on our computers, our phones, or our ipads, and we too are guilty as charged. That's why we love seeing talented "analogue" artists such as Dana Tanamachi being celebrated and their work being supported.
Miss Tanamachi is a talented chalk letterer whose work can be seen at the Ace Hotel, Garden & Gun magazine, and Rachel Ray Magazine. She is an alum of Louise Fili - powerhouse of restaurant and food branding in New York, and another firm that gets us all kinds of excited.
We love all of Miss Tanamachi's work, but are especially giddy over her designs for Nagging Doubt wines. Wine labels can often have too much noise on them without saying so much, but these are so beautiful and they give useful information such as flavor notes and suggested pairings. Brilliant, we say.
We're also smitten with the time-lapse of Miss Tanamachi working on these gorgeous labels.
