Seasons change and so do these business cards.

For this reprint, instead ok sticking to the grey + white theme that I've been seemingly defaulting to, I tried something diffferent. GOLD! I picked up a tube of gold in from the Printer's Fair a few weeks back from Ink in Tubes, pigment masters based out of San Jose, CA. Since then, I've been itching to use it for a project.

For these set of cards, I went full gold! Printed with gold ink and added a finishing gold edge on Crane's lettra 220# stock. The gold ink is subtle, not too shiny and brillant like gold foil, instead it leaves a pretty shimmer.

See the other grey and white version of these cards here and here.

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.

the specs:

European size business card
#220 Lettra Flourescent paper
2 color process (one with a blind deboss)
