When you are a management consultant I think what you want is a business card that looks like it, itself, has been well managed by a consulting designer. In this business card for Miner & Miner, Mike Kasperski managed the ink out of this project. He went with a risky registered emboss where the raised side of the “II” hits perfectly the offset-printed “II” and on the pressed side, well, it creates a delicious indentation where you just want to throw a blankie on and take a nap. As if that wasn’t enough panache, the business cards come in a little sleeve that is foil stamped in black. The whole look screams sophistication and seriousness with a dash of luxurious restraint.
