These business cards for an up-and-coming fashion photographer are fittingly extravagant. They should help set a professional but fun tone on first impressions with their handsome type, velvety black and shiny fuchsia.

Project Description

Being a young up and coming photographer in a saturated field, Michelle needed cards that were not only different, but also set a definite impression. Wanting to specialize in fashion photography, a stylish approach was needed. The combination of the reflective surface, the velvety paper texture and the vibrant colors create an instant and memorable impact.

Production Lesson(s)

The main challenge was getting our hands on the paper stock, not only was it rare, but it was quite expensive as well. To put our hands on it, we had to wait until the distributor had enough demand from surrounding printers in order to deliver it.”
