Project Description

I had the joy of working with a wonderful client, Laura McCoy on rebranding and designing stationary for her business, Onboard Executive Search. Since her primary connections are formed with a business card or a letter rather than online, I knew it was important that her stationary was tactile and personal. Letterpress printing and edge painting were the perfect touches.

Production Lesson(s)

My original intention was to use a blind hit for the stamp and the words "executive search", but I found that just a touch of grey in those areas set them apart while still keeping a subtle, elegant presence. While I imagined a deeper impression on some of the pieces, the smaller text in the design didn't allow for that hard of a hit.”
