In this unique identity system, twelve business cards were combined into a graphic composition using Sabon lower-case letters from my first name. My name and contact information were added in Helvetica Neue to add to the life of the composition. The cards had to work as one cohesive unit as well as 12 separate elements. Color was used as a surprise element and was found on the back of business cards in inside of envelopes. The colored portions of bright pink was also laser cut in order for my name and decorative elements to appear in white. Laser cutting also added a satisfying 3-dimensional touch. Finished pieces included business cards, letterhead, envelope, and mailing labels.
In this lively typography exercise, we began by creating a “face” using only 6–8 letterforms; the typefaces used to create this baby face were Optima, MrsEaves, and Baskerville. We then created a magazine cover that expresses the emotion in this face. Initially, only 3 colors could be used. They were carefully chosen, focusing on how the addition of color could further evoke the emotion portrayed in this face. Further renditions added more color to the original 3, and concentrated on color properties such as contrast of hue, contrast of saturation, and warm/cool contrast.
