[This is 2 of 2 posts of business cards designed by Silnt]

For Distillery Studio, an environmental design firm in Singapore, Felix Ng of Slint was brought in to help deploy their existing identity in a fresh and sophisticated manner. Felix explains:

With the challenge of retaining the complex logo and rethinking how Distillery wanted to be perceived by their target market, we needed to strip away elements that were cluttering the brand identity. The business card is designed by silkscreening a custom-mixed metallic bronze ink and PMS 491 U on 220 gsm New Raglin paper, Distillery’s existing logo is applied as an accent using blind-emboss, allowing the details of the logo to be seen on both sides subtly.

At least in pictures, that copper looks simply delicious and it’s amazing how much more engaging the logo feels embossed. All in all, a great business card to match the style of work at Distillery Studio.
