Project Description

While primarily focusing on the premium beverage/spirits industry, I wanted a business card and personal identity that can be relatable to potential clients and feel premium, refined, and sophisticated. Reflecting the famous Stone Arch Bridge of my home, Minneapolis, the line-work and crafted typography reflect a high quality and detail oriented mindset.

Production Lesson(s)

It's always a bit of a bit of a gamble whenever you are working with foil stamping and really small type. In this case, 5 pt type. I have wanted to work with Spark Letterpress for a long time, and I am really glad I was able to go with them for this project. All the line-work and the small type came out nice and crispy. I could not have asked for better quality work. I'll definitely be a little less worried next time I'm planning on pushing type size limits. ”
