IT House business cards

I've seen quite a bit of business cards over the years. Once in a while, a unique design will stop me in my tracks. When I open a file, I can typically see how to print the design right away. IT House's design made me pause which I hope will happen when someone receives this business card.

There's a play with texture. We create two versions in case the knockout of the letterpress didn't know and we pressed lines and the squares creating a design you can almost touch when you see it. To help the blind design pop, we added a touch of transparent ink. We foil stamped the information and mounted two sheets of Colorplan 130# for an extra luxe card.

the solo project

Here's are two variations on the same business card for a hair styling service, The Solo Project. Julio Hernandez, the man behind the concept, does amazing work (see his magic on my hair here).

The client requested a design with two variations of his card; one with a subtle geometric edging the card, and other with only type. Both are clean and minimal- just his style.
