While sorting through some stuff over the weekend I came across all the roughs I did while trying to work what picture, out of all the possible pictures in the universe, I was going to put on my business card. My starting point was that I wanted a person to be in it, and if possible an animal, and I wanted it to be quite vibrant.
One idea I had was to have the business card as one frame of a storyboard – everyone would be sent different frames and you’d have to visit my website to see the whole thing. I was using moo.com so I could have up to 50 different images on one side of the card..
..the middle column of a woman and a bird was the idea I eventually went with.
Lots of faces with different backgrounds.
I kind of liked this playing card idea using a man and a woman..
..and one of the last stages before I got to the finished product. The bird is a Cock of The Rock, a slightly comedy Andean cockerel-type creature.
