I'm seeing a trend. Simple is more. Maybe I'm a little late to this party, but I'm so happy I've been invited.
I've done quite a few calling cards for businesses lately that are striking in their simplicity. And the impact of the information on the cards is so much more meaningful when all of the other junk is stripped away.
I did calling cards for Kinfolk Magazine recently. The mix of two short lines of text and the heavy #220 Crane Lettra Paper was an awesome choice by Nate and his team. We had a great time when they visited the shop to watch me print their cards. I love getting a chance to show people how their pieces are made.
A few other smart folks have asked me to print their calling cards as well. Kelly and Paul Searle with Maxine Denver Photo + Video asked me to print their cards, and Jacob Hinmon with Four + One Productions also went with the less is more theme. Both cards, equally awesome.
Here's to a the type of year that is simple and clean. Cheers and Happy New Year!
