Check out these awesome new business cards we designed and letterpress printed for Frauke of Frauke Nelte Photography! Frauke specializes in digital landscape photography and is based out of Eugene, Oregon. When she and I originally talked, she wanted to incorporate elements of a landscape as well as a camera or an image of other photographic equipment into her card. She also wanted a card that was unique and would stand out in a crowd. These are what we came up with!
Frauke’s cards are 2.5″ squares with rounded corners and are printed on custom duplex Wausau Eclipse Black paper. These cards feature two of my favorite, modern typefaces, a vintage 4″x5″ camera imprinted in the background and a lovely tree with leaves floating down amongst the text. Originally, Frauke wanted to incorporate an image of a tree from her home town in Germany that she had taken into the design of the card, but the tree was so large that we ended up making a smaller, graphical representation of one of its branches to use, rather than the whole tree itself. As a finishing touch, each of these cards features matching copper edge painting, which really helps make the copper text and tree stand out.
Aren’t these awesome!?! Check out Frauke’s photography on her website, and if you’re interested in working with her, you can contact her by email. Thanks so much for working with me on these Frauke! Keep up the beautiful work!
