Binary Anvil Business Card

Monday January 16, 2012

Foil stamping is an impressive way to obtain striking opacity on colored paper. Using 200lb thick black vellum stock, the red was foiled first as a solid circle. On the next pass, the black image was foiled exactly on top to build the logo image. Precision press work is required when layering colors like this, and when done well, the end result is seamlessly striking.

Turnstyle Identity

Monday November 7, 2011

Sophisticated thoughtful design enabled Turnstyle to deliver a sharp new Identity.

On the Business Card the logo side is foiled with gloss black foil and the contact info side letter-pressed black and red. The final treatment was gold leaf gilded edges, all on 236# Reich Savoy, oh yes these cards feel good in the hand!.

Also featured are the #10 envelopes, letterpress address block and foil logo with a custom die-cut flap on Eames Painting Vellum White Text.

Gregory Henn Business Card

Friday June 3, 2011

Gregory Henn business card showcases a cool artistic design by Ryan Clark of Invisible Creature. One of the things we love most about this business card is the clever use of negative space. Clark did a great job incorporating red and white foil on 141# Black Curious Skin paper. By using bold shapes and color, the negative space utilizes the high contrast of the black paper to create a 3rd dimension. This design displays a perfect use of the chosen materials and print method. Ryan Clark says, of the design: “The inspiration was old movie posters with a modern twist”. Well done!

Parfait Labels

Wednesday March 16, 2011

Graphiti Associates worked to develop a cost-effective label that still reflected the high quality, hand made nature of the Parfait product and brand.

When designing a label for a truly 100% organic artisan ice cream maker, you can’t help but want it to reflect the quality of the product. We not only wanted everyone to know that Parfait makes everything completely from scratch but also that their jar had been hand sealed by the owner, Adria Shimada, herself.

In order to convey this to the customer, we incorporated an elegantly custom die-cut label that when applied creates a physical seal between the lid and the jar. Production at Evolution was achieved by printing a flood of orange with type reversed on stick and peel label stock followed up with a pass of brown foil for the bold graphics that are modern and simple with a final kiss-cut pass to create the unique label. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Parfait’s Organic Artisan Ice Cream, served fresh from her truck throughout the summer months. Or, if you’re like us, ice cream isn’t just for summer – so check out her home delivery service offered now!

Geometrically Pleasing

Tuesday February 8, 2011

TKTJ Design chose wisely when creating this geometrically pleasing farewell to twenty-ten. There is a unique balance that comes from the combination of Foil and Letterpress techniques. Here the impression created   turns negative space into competing shape and form on the page. The paper 118# Savoy by Reich Paper is our choice for pieces that fold, it doesn’t crack on the score, which helps achieve a clean look.  Savoy was also key in getting the desired dimensional look. 100# cotton means paper with soft flexibility, and looking at these photos you can see – and almost feel – the texture. Utilizing color, technique, and materials makes this piece really stand out.

Luxurious

Tuesday February 8, 2011

TKTJ Design combined two print methods to achieve this luxurious card on 110# Crane’s Lettra cover. First we letterpress printed the tree line art in cool grey 11 and then added the subtle coverage of pearl foil. The ability to combine two print methods under one roof gave TKTJ Design the creative freedom to obtain both the unique coverage of foil stamping and the deep impression of letterpress, all under a tight holiday deadline.
