Card Sharks: Behind the Business Cards

 

 

 

Passing out business cards may be an urban legend in this day and tech-savvy age, but the act is still necessary to best represent you and your company. Considering we usually design for others, when it came to LLM, we wanted to be very thoughtful about how we would represent ourselves. It was important to give the cards a personality that would reflect the unique makeup of each team member, yet have a visual consistency that connects us  As a result, within the illustrative montage that represents who we are, there is a common thread – a continuous bold horizontal line that runs through each image.
