Viewing the 1980s through the lens of 2012, we get to keep all the best parts—holographic foil and chubby fonts. If there is a massive holographic foil shortage this year, I blame Eighties Bangs for re-sparking the movement.

Eighties Bangs is a video editing firm based out of Los Angeles, CA and New York, NY. In designing their business card, the purpose was twofold. The first objective was to illustrate the company name, Eighties Bangs, in a style that was true to form, reminiscent and memorable. Simultaneously it needed to remain restrained enough to be suitable and professional in contemporary settings. After sifting through type of the era, a custom fatface was designed that would resonate with the decade without aligning the firm to any one specific product of the past. In the printing, the light reflective holographic foil served the dual purpose of cueing the eighties and connoting video light emitting from a black screen.
