Official deviantART Stationery by TheRyanFord Official deviantART Stationery by TheRyanFord
Update Part 2: Took some better shots of the stuff today for competition preparations, and thought I'd upload.

We finally got our new stationery back from the press.

As you can see, the stationery is fitting into our overarching brand concept of using artistic tools to represent ourselves. We're using a lot of paint (both actual paint and digital brushes to imply paint) to accomplish this, since paintbrush strokes are some of the most symbolic and recognizable ways of saying "art."

The business cards are standard size, but were enlarged a bit in this image to show more detail.

Yellow-green area of the logo on both the business card and letterhead has been treated with a clear foil stamp, giving it a shiny appearance (which is hard to communicate in an on-screen image).

For those wondering why an internet company would require letterhead, know that we got it in a relatively small quantity and only plan on using it for important messages to people.

Love this! It really communicates "art" and all that our community means. Looks really nice!

This is lovely. Wonderful use of negative space and there certainly is a painterly effect. However, it is not so overwhelming that important elements of design are ignored. I love stationery and the tactile quality of a good business card always makes the designer in me smile.

Whenever we all run out of cards, I'll be doing a new design.
I get sick of design work very quickly.

Any serious company needs letterhead, it's much more preferable to use official stationary in external communications than just plain paper.

Looks really good.

We don't send out too many letters, but when we do we need them to look like they came from us and represent the dA style properly.

Most letters we send out are actually legal things, such as "stop using a ripoff of our logo, douchebag." Very official shit.

Ahhh yes.

One of my jobs when I used to work for Jessops was sending out letters like "please give this person x-credit" to insurance companies and stuff, if we didn't use proper letterhead they would go crazy and demand we do it all again. I also think it's a nice touch that if you have to write a letter to someone they can see that you're serious with some stylish bit of letterhead.

dA is such a presence these days that if you didn't have good letterhead it would be the thing that turns some official people away.
