“Two Arms Inc. is a ( soon to be husband and wife team ) founded by Mike Tabie and Karen Goheen in 2009. We met 6 years ago in Orlando, FL while working with a local design agency and screen-printing together on nights and weekends. We independently moved to New York but continued to work separately within large and small design agencies. After a year we decided to take the plunge and partner together and start a business with our own vision in mind. There is nothing more satisfying then working with someone you love and trust. We love collaborating and getting our hands dirty. We are specialists of the handmade. We believe in craftsmanship, an attention to detail, and that sweet spot between concept and execution. We started this business because we care about what we do, and we want to work with clients who are passionate about their vision.” — Two Arms Inc.
HERB LESTER | LUGGAGE TAG SET
"When we aren’t working, we are traveling! Well …traveling to the bodega, traveling to find the best NY Slice, or traveling to the nearest bar… Even if we don’t venture far from our humble Brooklyn neighborhood, we don’t leave without a custom set of four double-sided tags: Air, Rail, Land, Sea. This product was a fun collaboration with our favorite team across the pond, Herb Lester Associates. These tag’s are printed on almost indestructible Tyvek®, a 1950s miracle product that looks like paper but resists tears and water."
BELL & OAK | FINE LEATHER GOODS PACKAGING
"At the corner of Bell and Oak street in Denton Texas is Weldon’s Saddle shop, where Clint Wilkson’s grandfather has hand crafted leather since 1957. Bell & Oak leather goods is dedicated to his grandfather’s craft of building saddles. All of the products are made using the same processes and tools that have been in his family for decades. We absolutely loved Clint’s work, and were thrilled to work with him to create his packaging. The Bell and Oak logo was created by one of our favorite designers Curtis Jinkins of Neighborhood Studios."
