CON.TRO Contemporary Bistrot Business Card

Fuga Studio designed these business cards for CON.TRO Contemporary Bistrot, a sophisticated yet affordable bistro located in Rome, Italy.

CON.TRO is the place where you can have a slice of pizza or a gourmet dish; a custom cocktail or a delicious haute patisserie dessert.

The business card is designed to express a sophisticated, welcoming feel.

Speaking of the design inspirations, “It all started with a few interior design renderings, with which we fell in love immediately: the black and white marble chevron floorings, the dark green walls, the vintage style armchairs, touches of gold here and there,” said Giulia Santopadre, the Co-Founder of Fuga Studio.

“The logo and subsequent visual identity came consistently, with its geometric patterns and high contrast colours.”

The typography used for the business card design including a custom designed font (for the logotype ‘CON.TRO’) and Adobe Caslon Pro.

Apart from that, CON.TRO also hands out these special cards (70x100mm) with the bill. They are just as stunning and even work as a different version of ‘business card’ for the company. The text written on it says ‘tell me what you eat and I’ll tell you if I like you’. Pretty neat!

CON.TRO’s business cards were printed by NostroInchiostro, a printing company in Rome.

“The cards were letterpress printed in pantone 560 on Fedrigoni Materica Verdigris 360g, with champagne foil,” Giulia said.
