There is a brand-new coffee roastery in Dublin - Cloud Picker Coffee are up and running in the Docklands. To mark their launch they wanted some special business cards - as I've said before, laser-cut cards don't come cheap but they do give impact. When a new company wants to make a mark, a memorable card can go down very well.
For these cards the Cloud Picker team chose engraved greyboard. Laser-engraved greyboard always look fab, you have this intersection of a utilitarian and oft-overlooked paper product with cutting edge lasering creating an unexpectedly luxe product.
This project was also a great example of using the laser to facilitate the design process. Frank was able to work through a few different style options and get real, physical samples made for very little effort before committing to the final design.
If you want to find out more about Cloud Picker you can find them on twitter @CloudPickerCoff and taste the coffee in the Science Gallery Café.
