Scottish Design Award: Stationery

This amazing design for Shannon Tofts Photography from Size Design received the Award for Stationery at the Scottish Design Awards this month  http://bit.ly/lifkKb
This was a technically challenging task. The stunning T/camera logo required a number of print runs to achieve depth and detail.
Firstly, a solid image of the camera with scant detail was printed with a light impression. The next plate, with additional camera detail, was applied with a heavier hit, printing black on black.
Finally, grey text was printed.
Letterheads are printed on crisp Colorplan 135gsm pristine white and the business cards are a very smart Colorplan Triplex 810gsm, pristine white to ebony to pristine white.
