Project Overview

For this project, I built on a logo and brand identity that I developed about two years prior and created the overall card design. Following the creation of the graphic layout, I oversaw the end-to-end production of the card by lining up a local master printer who could do craftsman-quality work with custom embossing, custom ink color, and specialty paper. The finished product was one that was distinctive, unique, and suggestive of the quality of the client's own work.

Often, the most satisfying part of the design process is holding the finished product in my hands. These cards came out amazing and the client used the design, unchanged, for several years. My favorite parts of them were the flat quality of the ink on the front, the precision embossing, and the perfect color.
