Steven Smith Teamaker

Rose Gonnella — Steve Sandstrom was the first and a most generous contributor to Design to Touch; his type design is always astonishing graphic artistry.


Steve Sandstrom is widely known for his typography and packaging work. In 1994 his creativity in building the Tazo brand defined how tea was received in the United States. His packaging work is a natural fit for the experimental engraving done in Design to Touch. This design was adapted from the Steven Smith Teamaker packaging. The exquisite line work shows how engraving’s opaque inks hold with precision to create solid, saturated color on dark colored paper — even with the most intricate of patterns.
