When I first sat down to concept ideas for my new business cards, I wasn't entirely sure where I'd take it, but I knew I wanted to do something custom and fun.
I wanted to create a variety of unique designs to pull together into a mini collection of artwork. I took into consideration the end uses along with the various audiences that would receive cards and gave myself a few simple guidelines:
- Design new work
- Include some snark
- Be genuine
Following my typical process, I did some word brainstorming, then a little rough sketching before narrowing in on the designs. I stuck mostly to hand drawn lettering, but wanted to include a couple of quotes that applied to my work and include some surface patterns (in the end I only used one pattern in this round, but more to come next time).
I was quite happy with the results, so much so that a few of the designs have made their way onto product in my shop. Below are some photos of the work.
If you'd like to talk about how I can help you with a project like this, drop me a line.
