Retro Business Card Designs: One More

Retro business card design featuring vintage clip art and retro fonts.

This is the straggler of the series of business card design examples I posted earlier. I ran into a  bit of design funk on this one, so I just let it sit for a couple of days and then came back to it. It features a horizontal design on the front and a vertical design on the back with retro fonts and authentic vintage art from (probably) the 50's.

Retro Business Card Designs

A retro business card design inspired by the classic cars of the MCM era.

Vintage bowling alleys were the inspiration for this business card design.

This design would be perfect for anyone looking for a bit of a vintage flair.

I just wanted to show off some of the new business card design examples that I've been working on. These all have a Mid-Century Modern look to them, but in the future I'm thinking about maybe delving into the Art Deco and Streamline Moderne periods for something retro, yet different.

Thanks for stopping by.

Oregon Coast

Seascape from a few years ago. Walnut & India Ink on Watercolor Paper.

I will be out of the studio/office for most of the week,. My girl, Sweets, is taking me to the beach for a much needed (by both of us) vacation. I'll see you about Friday or so. Have a great week.

Today is my youngest niece's twenty-second birthday and this is the card I did for her, because what says Happy Birthday better than a banjo playing turtle?

Turtle Birthday Cards; ink & marker on bristol.

Beach Study: Twin Rocks

Twin Rocks; watercolor and white gouache on 300 lb cold press paper.
I'm planning to offer some hand painted greeting cards in my Etsy shop later this month, so I've been working on my watercolor chops. This is Twin Rocks, Oregon, which is just south of Rockaway on Highway 101. Not familiar with Rockaway? It's a bit north of Tillamook (like the cheese), if that helps.
