Fuzz Interactive, rising stars in the design and web development community approached us to assist in making a show stopping business card. The final product is one of our favorites. They were printed on 220# Lettra Pearl White with a Red 032 flood with an additional deboss pattern on the front. It brings new meaning to a tactile feel.
Once they came to pick-up their cards, the topic came up of our home built website we’ve relied on for far too long. We commissioned Fuzz to take on the task of bringing us into the modern world, giving us integrated eCommerce and mobile functionality. We’re so very happy and humbled to be featured in their portfolio next to Industrypdx, Wacom, Intel and Adidas.
Also a big high five to Dan Cronin who did a stellar job photographing our portfolio.< Read More >
