It’s supposed to be my golden ticket (!) to a design job in this bloody economy. It also comes from the concept of my one-man, design shop brand: Biplane Creative. It’s meant to convey the feeling and thought behind the era of the biplane.

The biggest curve in the project was the plate for the card and making it feel like a ticket, without it feeling too much like a raffle. Also, hitting the paper right, so the artwork didn’t bump over to the other side. Jason, from Genghis Kern, had the brilliant idea to do them two-up and make them the width of the paper (8.5 in). Basically, I got two cards with one run of the press.

I see this card as having two main functions: business card and self-promotion. With the large format and the unusual concept it does more than provide Cameron’s contact information—it provides a piece that can’t easily be put away, meaning it will stay around for a bit reminding people of the encounter.
