Project Description

City Form Detroit is an urban design practice based out of Detroit, MI. When tasked with designing our own business cards, we sought to create classic yet bold cards that would stand apart from the rest.  The concept was to simply distinguish the front from the back by inverting the design. The result is an embossed logo that circumscribes our brand on the front and our contact information on the back.  The subtle change in elevation makes for engaging business cards, both aesthetically and to the touch.

Production Lesson(s)

Our biggest challenge was finding a local print shop that was both cost effective and skillful in working through the details of our project.  In the end were pleased with the results.”
