Business Cards: Sidebar Creative (2009)

New business cards (finally) for Sidebar Creative using the wonderful illustrations by Brad Rosier.


I'm a fan of spot varnish, in case you couldn't tell... I also used a very subtle gradient for the background, though you may have to get one of these in person to see it :)

    Any chance you could post a less "artistic" shot so those of us who won't receive one can see the detail more clearly?
  • Andrew Cornett 6y

    "we look much nicer in person" - HAH! those really are some sexy cards tho
  • Tom Carmony 6y

    Very cool. What printer did you use for these?
  • Veronica Domeier 6y

    Very slick. Love the illustration :)
  • Dan Rubin 6y

    @Dan B: I could, or I could just send you one.

    @Andrew: Thanks! :)

    @Tom C: Been using for years now, inexpensive, good print quality, fast turn-around. Not perfect for every project, but for what they do they are terrific.
  • Matthew Anderson 6y

    Very, very dope!

  • DanBenjamin 6y

    @Dan R: cool! Or you could just take another picture.
  • Dan Rubin 6y

    @ronicadesign: thanks! We love Brad's illustrations :)

    @Matthew: I'll get you one at AEA :)

    @Jan: thanks!

    @Marty: Almost, but not quite ;)

    @Simon: thank you sir!

    @Varick: You know I will! I'd kinda like to see these guys get in a fight with the Happy Webbie versions of us :P

    @Dan B: or I could do that. Just for you.
  • Kelly DeLay 6y

    Nice cards. Did you use a Lensbaby composer ( ) for the selective focus look? or just PS?
  • Dan Rubin 6y

    @ravedelay: no, though I'm curious about those and would love to try one out sometime. I just used a 50mm ƒ/1.8 prime lens wide open, which creates a very shallow depth of field.
  • Nathan Nash 6y

    those caricatures are great.
