As well as a rather nice new website, Melbourne based studio, Famous Visual Services have a cool set of business cards, each with a slightly different colour shade across the back.
First they printed a solid fluoro yellow on all 250 cards. They then ran the cards back through the press adding dollops of fluoro red to the press as the cards were running. The result is a 250 step gradation from yellow to red across the print run. The name details were then letterpress printed in black.
There is plenty of cool branding work to be found over at Anagrama Studio. Crisp and clean… lovely!
I particularly like the business card which is worked into a sturdy card envelope in the shape of a Polaroid picture, with an open front. On the envelope are printed Cora’s contact details and inside nine different images from different projects allow Cora to compose various mini portfolios customized for different client types.
I’m not a big fan of ‘mystery-meat’, hide ‘n’ reveal types of navigation, however, I do believe in the importance of context in user interface design and I gotta say this minimal interface, employed here in the context of a portfolio website, by designer Yuna Kim, really works for me.
