Design Archives - Stationary Set for Johnny Decker Miller
a mature brand for an illustrator
I designed this brand stationary system about 2 years ago for a friend of mine, Johnny Decker Miller, who's a talented Esoteric Illustrator. We've collaborated in the past such as this Green Grocer newspaper.
There were 2 parts to this project that we both wanted:
1. Communicate the maturity and depth of knowledge in Johnny's artwork; avoid 'heavy metal, dark, goth-y' cliches and highlight the story behind the art.
2. Make sure it's sustainable. Once I handed off the design assets to Johnny, he'd be able to run the brand system with consistency and integrity.
So, this is what I built for him:
- A set of Business Cards
- A custom stamp of his logo
- An update-able template
- A custom gift-wrap paper roll
- A sticker
The template would be updated by Johnny whenever he had a new piece to showcase and could be printed by himself with his paper-stock preference. And, the custom wrapping paper could be used for multiple functions; gifts, packaging, etc.
Overall, a simple but sufficient system for Johnny's use but also very budget-friendly too.
