These days we find our tastes run more toward clean, uncomplicated design. But then we come across something like this and all our preconceived notions about what design should be leap blithely out the window. Jason Carne’s illustrations tend toward the highly detailed anyway, so it seems only fitting that his business cards do so as well.
Mama’s Sauce, no slouches when it comes to intricate letterpress work, have really outdone themselves this time. The foil work, combined with the high-contrasts between red, white and black, do the card’s slogan (“Top Quality Workmanship”) proud. Truly, it makes you want to weep. (Granted our “weep trigger” is pretty low this week.)
