... As I progress with the idea of a Vintage Archive & Hire business - it occurred to me - business cards might be a good idea...
But I swung between having too many ideas of what they should look like (i.e. a tad dodgy craft lady) and totally understated (boring).
It was only when I was helping source some dresses for an actress that it occurred to me what the inspiration - for me - should be. The brief for the dresses among other words was 'iconic'.
Being freelance for years, I have made business cards before - and - I get bored of them. They date, look uncool, don't express what I want to say. Showing a 1940's image can be misconstrued as being only a collector of said certain period of clothing. So it hit me.
Vintage denim is a huge love of mine - its worn, washed, has history, has seen and heard many things (secrets, lovers, dates, breakups) and yet can say nothing.
Denim. Yes thats it.
Timeless. Ageless. Perfect.
Business cards - now being printed.
