I have a thing for personalised cards. I’ve always loved sending them as thank-yous or to commemorate events. I think this is partly because I earned my first monies as a graphic designer through selling handmade cards at my high school fete.
The act of creating a card reminds me why I like being a graphic designer so much. The card making process has evolved (or degenerated, depending on how you perceive it) from a handmade process to an entirely digital enterprise. Due to the crazy life I lead, I allow myself no more than 30 minutes to create one. Its like speedy-dating Hallmark style.
This is a little card I created for the wonderful Jasia Reichardt and Nick Wadley (whom I met through their Themerson archive) for the wonderful lunch they had for us in January 2011. Its called Red as Remembered.
