lauryn’s business cards

December 10, 2010

Sometimes, people forget that letterpress is great for simple designs as well as really elaborate ones. These cards we did for Lauryn are super streamlined, but with letterpress and edge painting, they’re minimalist without being plain.

It’s actually kind of symbiotic: the simplicity of the cards plays up the letterpress, which plays up the simplicity of the cards. Funny how that works, huh?

Aside from the cool camera icon, the edge painting in a rich mustard yellow was (of course) my favourite part.

Here’s hoping recipients will appreciate what I like to think of as a little hint of sunshine on each card. So cheerful!
