I revised the Stockpile Logo around the start of the new year, but hadn’t gotten around to changing my business cards or identity materials. That changed when I got this awesome birthday present from my youngest sister:
So now I had a fancy branded metal toolbox, but no current business cards. All that changed during an energy-drink-fueled all-nighter, when I made this piece of golden awesome:
I got the cards printed by Influence Graphics, located here in New York. They’re a little more expensive than most online printers ($100 for 500 cards on thick cover stock), but they got my order turned around in under 24 hours at a really high quality.
Even though my background is in graphic and advertising design, I always procrastinate work on Stockpile’s identity. It’s so personal that I obsess over every detail, and am rarely satisfied with the results. My sister’s present nudged me into action, Now I’ve got a complete identity package, and she is totally forgiven for saying my logo looks like a coffee pot.
