Tom Fogarty – Business Cards & Stickers!
Sometimes I can be almost creative, but not quite. I was bored the other day so I decided to make myself some business cards. I was so pleased with the results that I decided to get some stickers made as well. I did this for no particular reason, other than I was bored. I could never actually give them out to anyone and keep a straight face…
Being a narcissistic egomaniac, I decided to use myself as a background image, using this Photoshopped picture of me I made back in January (another example of my twisted sense of “art”)
Then I used the Andre the Giant Has a Posse viral campaign as a basis for the 2-tone print effect. The idea for this was also inspired by the skull stickers I kept seeing dotted around London a while back (I never did find out where they came from or what they meant):
I got them printed for free online. I took the time to make them at the right high-res dpi, converted them into the right file format (.ai) at the correct dimensions and including a 3mm bleed mark around the edge.
They came out shit.
I could have done a better job printing them out myself and cutting them out with scissors left-handed and with my eyes closed.
Guess there’s no such thing as a free lunch, eh?
