Business Card for: Ricky Richards
I created the money business card as a promotional piece. I’m currently still at university and I wanted to work freelance in my spare time so a project involving the public seemed the way to go if I was to receive recognition.
The inspiration for the card came by luck. I was lucky enough to find a £10 note on the floor , I saw it from a distance and even made a small dash to pick it up. It occurred to me that it would be a good idea to create a fake note as I personally don’t no anybody who could walk past a note on the floor and not pick it up. I understood peoples initial reaction would be of disappointment as it wasn’t real so I made sure the message was cheeky enough to bring people round to appreciate the project.
I actually printed the notes at staples, the message made it clear enough the notes where fake and I even placed the words fake on the note in low opacity on the front so it could be seen if held at hands distance.
I printed the notes on low quality matt paper to get a similar thickness and texture to a real note.
