Consisting of only two rubber stamps and a wax seal, the individual components of artist Arturo Comas’ stationery set lend themselves to experimentation in placement and paper stock. Printed by the artist instead of the designer, each piece is intended to be a work of art in itself.

Project Description

While developing the identity and supporting stationery materials for the artist Arturo Comas, I chose to pursue the use of a stamp—using his initials A and C—which he could use on his projects as well as in the stationery suite. I wanted to avoid a mass production approach by printing the letterhead, envelope, business card, and other materials in favor of a unique and artistic application to each piece, thus creating a work of art each time. By using a stamp, Arturo Comas could choose from different colored papers, play with textures, and even cut each business card in a as needed basis.

Production Lesson(s)

I was thrilled to see my idea of using different paper stocks and the stamps come to life in an artisanal approach, and the ease of experimenting with each application and each imperfection.”
