Project Description

Personal project exploring a different approach to the traditional business card design, based on the concept of good design should be invisible and only revealed when needed. All the cards were laser cut with a perforated design, then attached to a transparency with my website printed on the back. A middle layer, also printed on transparency is added to cover the information.

Production Lesson(s)

One of the challenges was lining up the perforated holes on the matboard with the dot matrix on the transparency sheet perfectly so you can see the type through the holes.”
