Years ago the idea of doing a business card for myself (as a graphic designer) was a little daunting. It had to say so much while not looking too this, or too that.. THEN along came moo cards - those gorgeous little mini cards that can be photographic and have many different looks..
But this year for the zine fair - i decided to take a more DIY approach.
Here's what you need:
• card stock
• stamps: hand carved, bought, or custom ordered + stamp pad.
• rotary blade cutter - try the perforated or deckle edge.
• office name/address stamper
• Japanese masking tape
So firstly after selecting my card stock - I loaded up one of those office style stampers with my details..
then i stamped my logo with my vista print stamp - perhaps you've seen this here - pretty easy to get, handy to have!
Then I perforated the edge with my rotary cutter. Stamped a bit of colour with a hand carved rubber stamp.
Added the compulsory gorgeous Japanese masking tape and VOILA! unique business cards ready to go.
Of course the possibilities and combinations here are endless!
If you happen to be coming to the zine fair at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney NEXT Sunday 22nd. 11-5 drop by, say hi and pick one up!
