Production Method

Foil stamp







Clear foil accentuates geometric patterns in this otherwise bare-bones, monochromatic stationary suite by Ghost. Eschewing traditional law firm aesthetic, California based attorneys Keith Millhouse and Ernie Hahn sought a sleeker, more modern look for their brand and collateral. Was the choice of gunmetal as a color purposeful?

Project Description

When we started working on their brand, we asked attorneys Keith Millhouse and Ernie Hahn what they didn't want to see. They answered "no columns please." The office and the attitude of the new California law firm is free of mahogany paneling, cut-crystal decanters and other traditional clichés. They are modern, sleek and incredibly talented; they wanted a mark and graphic standard to reflect it.

The design boasts a monochromatic palette of gunmetal and cool grey, a stylized mark and geometric patterned elements printed with clear foil.

Production Lesson(s)

We could not use foil on the letterhead because that would ruin the client's laser printer. So, matching the clear foil process on business cards and folder to an offset process for the letterhead was quite tricky and took some trial and error to achieve the same look.”
