This set is deceptive at first glance. The color, appropriate for the brand name, doesn’t exude jocularity; but upon further investigation, the pieces start speaking in a rather playful manner, breaking the stereotypical sternness of army green. And oh, so many beautiful diecuts.

The identity system consists of letterhead, custom #10 policy envelope and wafer seals, double-sided business card set bound with rivets. Perforation on the business card set makes for an interactive introduction to theCOUNTERcorps and its brands as the consumer or buyer flips through or tears off each layer until getting to the core card consisting of traditional business card contact information. As a matter of fact, this entire system is interactive. For example, there’s an area on the letterhead to highlight the date at the bottom and on the reverse side of the #10 envelope there’s an area to indicate what type of correspondence the recipient is receiving.

Production Notes: 2-color (PMS 5625 and 8501 metallic), blind emboss on every component, custom die-cuts for every component, printing on back of letterhead, business card set and inside lining of envelope, perforation and rivets to finish the business cards.
