we recently designed brand new business cards for our ultra fun friend and calligrapher, mandy, of myrtle & lloyd. she wanted a letterpress card that was both chic and sophisticated, but still expressed her creative personality and talent. her beautiful, hand-drawn logo was blind de-bossed on the front and her contact information was pressed on the back in warm charcoal gray ink. the minimal design was the perfect palette for mandy to add a custom wash of watercolor to each card. we love this idea and hope her clients do too!

work wednesday: polis ventures.

we recently developed branding for a new investment company, polis ventures. they envisioned a modern yet traditional logo that reflected growth, elevation and also gave us the freedom to explore the acropolis and spartan/greek elements. their new business cards were letterpress on a double thick cover stock. the navy and grey logo stands alone on the front and their contact information is on the back. we wish raheem + omar best of luck in their new endeavor!

work wednesday: suzanne delaney photography.

our talented photographer friend, suzanne delaney came to us with a little idea. she wanted a petite business card that could hold a petite photo. appropriately enough, our other good friend allie, of petite rue, designed her logo. we took that beautiful logo and had it letterpressed onto 1 piece of cranes lettra paper. we had another piece of the same paper die cut with 4 slits to house a miniature 2″ x 2″ photo that sue is able to change freely. these 2 pieces are then adhered back to back creating a perfectly thick business card. sue is having so much fun handing out her cards and seeing people react to the unexpected surprise on the back!
this post was delayed a day due to a small studio opening we had for family yesterday!

work wednesday: gina sole.

gina sole is a very talented and well-respected wedding planner in the philadelphia, new jersey and new york city area. she requested an updated business card to reflect her style and the high-end services she offers to her couples. we just couldn’t wait for an excuse to use gold foil! luxurious gold foil stamping is used on the front of the extra thick cranes lettra paper. gina has a morrocan tile pillow that she loves and thought we could use it for inspiration. we added an element of surprise by using a pop of coral and a similar pattern on the back of the card. gina was overjoyed with the final product and we can’t wait to work with foil again!

calling card.

before facebook, online dating services, email or cell phones, there was only one basic social networking tool… the personal calling card. these cards are making a big comeback. there’s just something simple and nostalgic about them. chrissy came to us wanting one for her and her husband with a stylized portrait. this totally suits her bubbly personality and design style!
