Business Card & Letterhead Designs
by Daniel Will-Harris
I'm available for work no matter where in the world you are. If you're interested in having me work for you, just drop me a note.
James Nash is a guitarist (obviously) who wanted a card that was different. Actually, his significant other hired me as a present. Wasn't that nice? The thing about a musician is that they are selling themselves (I mean this in a nice way), it's their talent that's what's important. So
I wanted to design a card that was as much about him as possible.
Since I work remotely, I wasn't near him to take pictures, so I asked him to have pictures taken of his hands playing his guitar, in several positions from several angles. He emailed me the photos. I cut one out and gave it a heavy outline, so it would look more like an illustration.
His name and the other script type is set in Cezanne (to which I did some manual editing) from www.p22.com . The small text is Adobe Cronos Swash, a great Multiple Master typeface with a simple yet elegant swash version.
This is a two-sided card for a piano player. I just thought
it would be fun to turn the grand piano shape into a woman's face using two other shapes. The words make "keys" and the font is ITC Anna from itcfonts
This company specializes in personnel recruitment, so I designed a logo that turned the initial "T" of "Theyer," into a face. At once simple, yet memorable, and even amusing, the logo set the tone for the rest of the pieces, including the web site where the logo becomes animated. Typeface:
Bitstream Bank Gothic.
The letterhead used was simpler than this, because the client wanted something less whimsical, but this is the design I preferred:
Since I suffer from allergies myself, I knew that the bottom line for this design had to be one thing:
relief, so that became the core of the design. Symptoms on the left, moving to relief on the right. The letterhead uses the same motif. Typeface: Adobe Cronos Multiple Master.
Educare needed to make it very clear what they did, so I took the definition and mission statement and made it an integral part of the logo
so there could be no confusion. Typefaces: Bitstream New Baskerville. "e" is set in ITC Bronx. Address on bottom of letterhead is Bitstream Humanist 521 (Gill Sans) Condensed.
