For those of you who haven’t had the chance to meet our talented staff, I thought we’d take this opportunity to introduce you to the designers and support team of Studio Hinrichs. The caricatures were done during last years holiday party at Jardinière by our friend and colleague Zach Trenholm. Zach did such a wonderful job we thought that you might like to share the experience with us.
Several months ago we were asked by Julie Anixter, an Avery Dennison consultant, to create a “Designer Showcase” that features insights, examples and personal stories about packaging and design from some of the world’s leading designers and design school students.
The resulting website was launched in December. Designers visiting the site will discover packaging tips and new materials that can enhance their label designs and increase their impact on customers. The new site reflects Avery Dennison’s belief that designers and design firms deeply influence the way consumers think about and experience brands.

Rob Forbes, founder of PUBLIC Bikes in San Francisco, asked Kit Hinrichs to be one of 27 designers to create a poster for his PUBLIC WORKS project. The objective of the poster design was to interpret the combined ideas of “public” and “bicycles,” illustrating, in Rob’s words, “the impetus… to bring greater attention to the critical issues of public space, access, and livability of our cities.”
To create the poster, Kit Hinrichs worked with Studio Hinrichs designer An Luc to interpret the international appeal of urban cycling. The cartographic composition features bike routes from Amsterdam, Beijing, London, New York, Paris and of course, San Francisco. Vintage maps form the cyclist figure.
