Business Card for: Jez Owen
I wanted to create something that was very personal but also displayed my INTEREST in integrated communications and unusual formats. I also needed a calling card that combined my work as both a graphic designer and a producer of editorial content.
I’d had an idea floating around to do a piece of work based on a melding of 2001 and Twin Peaks. I’m not sure where the idea came from other than I am a massive enthusiast for both and I was intrigued by the graphic possibilities that such a mash-up might provide.
The result was this combination of the ‘Red Room’ set from ‘Twin Peaks’ and the Monolith from ‘2001.’ The front design included a URL to drive recipients to a special blog on the inspiration behind the work to display my writing skills while the reverse side displayed my contact details and instructions on how to convert the card.
