“For our Motor City Chop Shop design, we wanted to do something spunky with just a bit of edginess. We incorporated the brand name into the outline of the motorcycle logo. Then we used the letters to hold it all together—the top of the C looks like a gas tank and the tail on the M holds the back tire onto the icon. Since motorcyclists are all about having a unique experience on a custom bike, we knew we couldn’t just do a smooth paper design.

We opted to combine letterpress and embossed print techniques on both the image and text to make them stand out, then added a stippled effect to the entire card for an all-over texture. To make the design more playful, we reversed the color scheme on the back so the background is covered with black PMS ink and the dots are white.”
