This months round up of business cards designs.
Carnivore Identity & Branding by Alexandre Mercier (above)
Pikcells are a design driven CGI studio, with offices in England and America. Their work is full of rich detail and a great deal of innovation — they wanted to reposition their brand to reflect the more design driven aspect of their business. Designed by A.N.D. Studio.
To highlight the focus on design and detail, we produced an icon based upon a 3D axis. This can then be used as a watermark on their images, or be replicated to make patterns and represent a feeling of space. The flexible use will always be associated with the precision of their work. The roll out of the new brand included a new website, stationery and a brochure.
Similar to last week’s post, a film created by Carl Schlesinger and David Loeb Weiss documenting the last day of hot metal typesetting at The New York Times.
This film shows the entire newspaper production process from hot-metal typesetting to creating stereo moulds to high-speed press operation. At the end of the film, the new typesetting and photographic production process is shown in contrast to the old ways.

Vox’s Phil Edwards looked into it and found an aesthetic shaped by comics culture, technology, and really cheap paper.
Excited for this documentary to be released. Graphic Means – a history of graphic design production.
Growing up primarily digital as a designer my brain cannot process how things were done — even a few decades ago.
I had some vague knowledge about production before the Mac, but it was only based on brief references my teachers made, or the little-used-tools that remained in various studios I worked in.
It occurred to me that if I knew so little, my graphic design students know even less! So with this, I set out to document the tools, processes, and people, of this brief moment in the design world. — Briar Levit, Director/Producer
