Until Nancy teamed with Brick Design to create a brochure for Strut, she had no idea that luxury automobiles might require further fancying up with titanium grilles and wheel rims. Who knew?


Forest City + Richard Rogers

When developer Forest City and Pritzker-winning-architect Richard Rogers vied for the contract to remake San Francisco’s Transbay Terminal neighborhood –– replete with the tallest tower in the west –– they turned to Pentagram and Nancy to create a book showcasing the proposal.

Dreyer’s Willy Wonka Ice Cream

Nancy had a blast channeling her inner Willy Wonka for Dreyer’s new brand of premium ice cream. Along with writing a unique back panel paragraph for each flavor, Nancy whipped up many of the names. (Her favorite? Why, Kerfuffle Truffle, of course.) The design is by Studio Hinrichs.
