Background

Rock Creek Homes is a small team of real estate agents who specialize in buying, selling and restoring homes in Washington, DC. We worked closely with the founders of the company to create an identity system that encompasses the complex and precise nature of their industry. The final outcome was a brand that represents their mission and heritage.

We worked with the renowned craft printer, Mama’s Sauce, to produce a set of custom, letterpressed stationary. The business cards were printed on handsome 220 lb. Lettra—about as sturdy as a house!

Together with our friends at Jumbie Industries, we produced one a kind, laser etched, cypress, Shou Sugi Ban sign.

Shou Sugi Ban is a traditional Japanese method of using fire to make hardwood resistant to rot, insects, and water.
