A personal stationery package developed for self promotional purposes. The identity communicates personal values, and my services in graphic design and photography through various techniques and production methods.

The business card makes use of a production method in which a middle layer containing my contact information is laser cut out and sandwiched between two outer sheets of paper. Facing downward you can only see the printed idiom “more than meets the eye” implying a hidden message or beyond what is initially perceived. When held up to a light source (daylight works fine) the contact information is revealed. A testament to minimalism, and a curiosity for what lies beneath the surface.

The symbol of the eye, is created through a reprographic technique called halftone. As the scale or depth-of-field changes the eye comes in and out of focus. It is accompanied by the Gestalt idiom “see the forest for the trees”. The concept of Gestalt—a collection of symbolic entities that create a unified being or whole—seemed appropriate way communicate my specialization as a designer of visual identities in an enigmatic way.

The identity does no make use of a formalistic logo, and instead is largely recognized through typography and technique.”

Goodman & Gower Wedding Invitation

Designed by Natalie Goodman | Country: Canada

“Our wedding invitation design was inspired by a vintage elk bottle opener we have in our home. We wanted to create a rustic, chic emblem for our wedding “logo” that could be used across all our print materials. The main invite was etched into a white maple wood 5″ x 7″ card.  We letterpress printed on a heavy 140# Holyoke – Bone for both the accommodations card ( 2-colour) and reply card (double-sided: 1-colour & blind deboss), outer envelope was Lettra – Pearl White (1-colour) and the pantones we choose were an uncoated PMS 321 & 185. The blind deboss on the back of the reply cards turned out better than we anticipated, the result was pleasing.  We had some fun with our RSVP postcard reply card and made it a fill-in-the-blanks style, to get people involved in the event. Some of our reply’s where pretty astonishing, specially from the grandparents!”
