The Holiday Season can be a difficult time for a lot of folks. A seemingly endless shopping list to conquer, a shrinking budget with which to do said shopping ~ and let’s face it: our businesses don’t run themselves while we’re visiting relatives.

For a lot of us, this is proving to be an especially challenging winter. All one needs to do is turn on any Major Media News Network to hear a chorus of Bah-Humbugs from pundits & politicos alike. It’s about this time that I really start thinking about what is most important to me ~ Family.

As in many households, my Grandfather was an important, central figure ~ truly the patriarch of our family. I spent a great deal of time with him as a young man; his ideals, philosophies & work ethic played a major role in my development, and I hope to pass those lessons on someday soon.

Recently, I visited my Grandfather in the hospital ~ he’s been battling an illness for some time now, and this last stint was a real struggle for him. It is always difficult to see a loved one suffer ~ we continue to want to see them the way we did as children: Strong, Resilient, maybe even Indestructible.

I wanted to do something for him this Christmas that would remind him of the strength and success that characterized his life. His father, Robert Keller Hasty played Professional Baseball from 1919-1924 for manager Connie Mack of the Philadelphia Athletics and was able to share the field with such legends as Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth.

On my last visit to see him, I was given a scrapbook kept of my Great-Grandfather’s illustrious career. I created this custom poster design, documenting an important part of my family’s history. Baseball is sacred in our family as it is in many American homes, and many of the values my Grandfather learned & passed on to me were taught through the game itself. Did you share a similar experience in your family? What games and activities were sacred to you and yours? Leave a comment and let us know! (more…)

Charleston, SC-based Little City Musical Theatre Co. was looking to make a splash on the regional theatre scene. They decided to produce a revival of Richard O’Brien’s Rocky Horror Show Live! This would be their 2nd production as an incorporated theatre group, and they wanted to represent their brand properly. Inkhaus Creative Director Sam Favata was hired to play guitar in the show. He seized the opportunity to bring the two businesses together, and a flyer design was commissioned.


Inkhaus created this flyer design ~ a hip, modern take on the classic iconography of the show. The production received rave reviews, and future performances are being planned. We look forward to working with Little City again, as we love to see fellow independent businesses grow and thrive. As Dr. Frank N. Furter would advise: “Don’t dream it, be it!”
