After having a session in the print rooms, Antony Ward was telling me about how he was looking to construct a business card and he had a couple of ideas. One of the great things he showed me was one of the paper stockist books that he obtained from a specialist paper manufacturer, G.F.Smith . I was amazed, lit with Helvetica and looking so pretty it looked like a piece of art in its own. Based in Hull conveniently where Antony is from, they specialise in high-end paper and printing their website is pretty cool too, I'm gonna try and email them and see if I can get hold of some samples. I also had a look at a less fancy paper manufacturer John Purcell in London, a less fancy website and design but offer a wide range of premium papers at i believe competitive price, but I'll have to have a look into it properly, but I found it really interesting the comparison of how each company presented itself differently.
I've been thinking lately about producing a business card, simply to design something for my self and give a much more professional feel to myself as a designer.
