Business Cards

An important part of running your own small business is networking - meeting people to work with and potentially meeting new clients. For a graphic designer I realised it's also very useful for research purposes. I go home at the end with a stack of Business Cards. I often design those (usually) 85mm x 55mm pieces of card that are passed out and have a very important job to do. These are two of my favourites from recent networking events:-

the card that likes to talk is a great idea for photographer, Jane Massey, and

the little card with the scanable details brings business cards into the 21st Century for Alternative Copy

Memory Lane

Before going into details about what I've been up to recently this is just a little trip down memory lane. You may remember that last year I went to Buffalo to take part in Type Camp. I did all sorts of work with letterpress printing and book making. My favourite piece of work from that experience has been featured in a blog post about Type Camp by Neenah Paper which you can check out here -

Thanks to Little Miss Bliss and Susan Geerkin for their contributions of "123 Sheep" and "cuddle".

Trick or treat

This past month I've been very busy working on some exciting new projects. I hope to be able to post details in the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime feel free to download October's calendar, inspired by the blood, gore and dressing up that is halloween. But while planning your costume don't forget Apple Day on the 21st!
