DESIGN PROJECT: Ziggi Ultrathin Rolling Papers

My first question upon getting the commission for this project was why not use Cliff Robinson’s well-known nickname, Uncle Spliffy? I mean, c’mon!

NBA All Star and Portland Trailblazer legend, Cliff Robinson played on the 1992 Portland team that went to the NBA Finals against Michael Jordan and the Bulls (and had the series tied 2-2 with a road win in Chicago, way better than the Blazers did in the Western Conference Finals this year, ouch).

I submitted two designs for this project, and the client chose the white papers. Maybe I’ll nudge him to make this into a series and have multiple ongoing designs, as I think the red and black design is also strong.
