Letterpress Business Cards with an Edge

Around this time of year I’m reminded by my students this is prime job-hunting season. They’re looking for that special job that speaks to them, and ways to get noticed in the crowd.

HOW+Print Come Together in the latest Moo Luxe Project

If you you love HOW and PRINT Magazines (and who doesn’t, really?), you are really going to dig these new Moo Luxe business card collections. HOW Clever and Letter Love, are two new collections designed by the art directors of two of our favorite design publications. The design team that created this new collection for The Luxe Project includes Claudean Wheeler, Art Director of HOW + PRINT Books, Adam Ladd, Art Director of HOW Magazine, and Ronson Slagle, Art Director of PRINT Magazine.

As with all Moo Luxe Project collections, the designers selected a charity of their choice to receive 100% of the net sales for one month. The Chicago­‐based non‐profit, EPIC: Engaging Philanthropy, Inspiring Creatives, has been selected by both the HOW and PRINT designers as the lucky charity to benefit from the sales of these collections. Ready to help a charity and receive some beautiful business cards in return? Let’s take a look at the brand new designs.
