Happenings: Charlottesville Ale Trail – Custom Beer Bottle

 

 

We recently had the opportunity to collaborate with the Charlottesville Ale Trail!  Charlottesville Ale Trail was started as a way to promote the growing brewing industry in the City of Charlottesville.  We manufactured a giant beer bottle, complete with a custom label, to celebrate their launch!  Thanks to Made in Charlottesville for the connection!

What We’ve Been Up To – Google Android

For our most recent custom project, we collaborated with Google Inc. to design and manufacture a cardboard Google Android!

If you find yourself at Google’s Mountain View, California campus, you’ll be sure to see our Cardboard Android!  You can also find them online at the Google Online Store!

A Royal Ride

eyan_uj_blog_002Eyan the Elephant appreciates the safe refuge you have to offer.

He is not likely to do circus tricks, or bear your load, but will bring a sense of grace to any setting.

Eyan’s quiet intensity inspires people to get things done. He will remind you to finish your homework, to write that thank you letter, and to upload those photos from the zoo.

Have some projects to do around the house? Replace the grout, refinish that bookshelf, or paint the nursery? Eyan will give you the strength to persevere.

And if there are kids at play, you may just see Eyan’s trunk sway.

Though humble, Eyan loves to sport a fancy coat. You can find him in Floral, Modern art, or Flag prints.

He dreams of taking a leisurely stroll from London to Glasgow, and invites you to join him!

Look for the Rhino! And watch for more Safari Stories.

A Flurry of Unicorns

There is nothing Merlin the Unicorn likes more than to share his magic. His mojo may be just what you need to complete that fantasy novel, epic poem, blog entry, or surreal painting (though his personal favorite is the Bay Area Figurative Movement).

He is also known to whisper lullabies to restless children.

Merlin loves family film night, especially if you’re watching something from the Harry Potter or Narnia series. He is also eager to sit through anything by Tarkovsky, Bunuel, or Švankmajer.

Merlin will inspire you to create, imagine, and aspire. He is shy, but generous.

Winter Solstice is Merlin’s favorite magical holiday. He is suited up in snowflakes, stars, and spangles to welcome the light! Invite him into your home to brighten up these dark winter days.

 

Wish Upon a Fish

Whether you are fishing for a mate, a job, or dinner, Wayne the Bass wants to make sure you succeed.

He is happy to hang around and wait for a catch, and may inspire the perfect line.

Have some secret wishes? Write them down on colorful scraps of paper, roll them up, and incorporate them into Wayne’s scales.

He will protect your dreams and serve as a reminder that patience reels in great rewards!

Wayne wants to wriggle into your holiday scene. He makes a great Advent calendar or Hanukkah day counter with plenty of compartments for notes, trinkets, and shiny objects.

Wayne is the fish that keeps on giving!

Meet Bucky, Dressed for Winter

bucky sweaterBucky the Deer is the perfect companion for home or office.

His calm presence will quell your anxiety.

Is there a deadline looming? Are you feeling the burden of financial stress? Wondering if that hot guy in the office will ever notice you? Training for a sports event? Gearing up for the hunt?

Bucky will remind you to tread lightly, eat your vegetables, find stillness in moments of terror, and leap ahead swiftly (all this in the safety of your own home).

Bucky has been around. From the stage set of the Jimmy Fallon Show to the pages of Southern Living Real Simple, and Sunset magazines. Bucky will remind you to live large and strut your stuff!

It’s getting cold outside and Bucky is bundled up for the holidays. He is very crafty and has knitted himself a few beautiful sweaters.
