We're here at @napavintners' #AuctionNapa and excited to see our design work in action while enjoying some delicious wine. Perhaps we'll even get a glimpse of the Coppola family, the honorary co-chairs this year! Follow along our Story for more 🍷

Shelves are looking pretty spiffy at the office.

It's #NationalWineDay and we're taking time to appreciate some of our clients in the California wine industry. Swipe left to view print, identity, packaging and website design for @napavintners' #AuctionNapa, @redcarwine, @cliffamily and @freemarkabbey.

Part of the creative process at #ChenDesign: sketching out our vision of the perfect product shot with trusty pencils and paper.

Finally out in the wild: @venusspirits' special release vodka! We designed the packaging back in 2014, and can't wait to see it in person at their distillery in Santa Cruz. 📷: @venusspirits

Slowly but surely unpacking and getting settled at our new-ish office.

Auction Napa Valley, hosted by @napavintners, is an annual weekend of events that includes vineyard parties, vintner-hosted dinners, and live auctions to benefit disadvantaged families in the region. We designed a booklet invitation for #AuctionNapa that is custom die-cut, side sewn-bound, and incorporates French folds, multiple metallic inks, and de-bossed details.

Fun news from #CoffeeExpo2017: @kcpurveyors was a Design Lab Packaging Award Recipient! This particular re-branding project included creating an exclusive gift package and consuming lots of delicious coffee, naturally.

Starting off the week at a press check for @sfheritage. More will be unveiled at their Soirée 2017 celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love and the landmarks, luminaries, and legacy businesses of San Francisco. #sflandmark

Friday happy hour, courtesy of @venusspirits. A belated congrats on their many recent awards, including awards for packaging design! We're looking forward to continue collaborating on future projects, too. 🎉

We're building out quite the prop collection for an upcoming shoot with @johnmastersorganicsusa.

Today’s office view: the beautiful @roundpondestate. We’re shooting for our client @wydownhotel’s soon-to-launch website, and couldn’t ask for better weather. Check out where else we'll be stopping by today on our story!

Humbled and grateful to be included among @print_mag's Spring 2017 San Francisco issue / #chendesign with @thisiscollins @turner_duckworth and @sterling_brands / shout out to @debbiemillman for the vision, @johnkeatley the pictures and @zachary_petit the words

Remember to look up every now and then. Grateful for our new #chendesign studio space.

Very excited about this early Christmas gift -- can't wait to pore over every last #nasaworm #branding detail. Thanks @alexcasella12 for indulging this nerdy #chendesign #typophile 🤓

Holiday happy hour started early today. What a crazy amazing year it's been. We can't wait to see what 2017 brings our way. #chendesign discovers #makewesting

The ultimate #tbt -- 88 years ago on this date in 1928, our #chendesign studio was the sparkling new home of the Guaranty Building & Loan. Reports the Tribune: "The building will set a new style for Oakland. Of colonial architecture, simple in line and dignified in appearance..."

Finally out: winter 2016 catalog by #chendesign for @benefitcosmetics lands in 35 countries worldwide. We've almost never been this cheeky and quirky in so many languages.

Always proof print pieces in printed form. Always. We still do after all these years (and technological advances). #tuesdaytip from your friendly #chendesign team

All set for talent to show up. #chendesign photo shoot for Money magazine #calmbeforethestorm

This #chendesign team. Always blown away by the talent, thoughtfulness and dedication to deliver nothing but their best. Sneak peek of a new magazine launch for a national association client.

Been burning it all week #midnightoil #chendesign #goteam

Ready to meet clients new and old / #chendesign new digs #oakland #sfbayarea
