Shinori designed these business cards for her self-branding as an illustrator based in Argentina.
Shinori’s main work is creating illustrations for children’s book.
“The logo was inspired by a giant pencil, to recreate the freedom we had as children when we played drawing,” Shinori explained.
As for the card design and typography, they were done by De Otoño, a letterpress printing studio in Argentina.
“The design is simple since the important thing was to enhance the client’s illustration. We wanted a ‘handwritten / monolinear’ typeface for her SHINORI name that would match the style of the illustration and keep the rest simple and clean,” said Lula, the owner of De Otoño.
These single-sided business cards were printed by De Otoño via letterpress printing technique, which according to Shinori, a kind of print that is considered sensitive to both sight and touch. The cards were printed on WILD 450gsm paper (35% cotton fibers and 65% virgin pulp) using black Pantone ink (Van Son Holland ink).
