I needed a business card that was going to stand.

This piece comes from talking to a local design studio being open to me coming back in with a portfolio if I was ever looking for work.

The idea starts from Massimo Vignelli talking about Lella being the brakes to his work and Michael Bierut talking about how that took a long time to understand why it was as important, so somehow that became a fire extinguisher as I have always liked design with everyday objects being used out of context as long as they still mean something.

The quote is adapted from the Rolling Stones “Play with Fire” the studio I was talking as many others do have an affinity for music so I wanted something to reflect that.

If any of that context got through I don’t know but they seemed to like it so hopefully I’m working with them more in the future.
