Design: Hosking Industries’ New Business Cards

Hosking Industries' Business Card

Hosking Industries' Business Card

This is the design of Hosking Industries’ new business card for our photojournalism services. We’ll be revising the design regularly as the pile runs out, updating them with other examples of our photographic work. Our original card design didn’t use any photographic elements as we hadn’t started shooting cars as our business yet – plus we were wanting them to represent not only photography and automotive journalism, but graphic design, copywriting, web design and much more as well.

We reckon this design kind of covers all the bases and shows off some of our design skills at the same time. Hope you like it and we hope we get the chance to hand you one of them at some point, too!

Hosking Industries offers commercial and private photographic services, specialising in the automotive and music industries. Even if you don’t think your car or bike is good enough for a full feature in a magazine, we can still shoot your pride and joy just as if it were going into one; making it look as glamorous as the vehicles you see in print on newsstands all over the world.

Another day, another Photoshop tutorial. It took around 30 steps to make this cool little folder icon graphic from psd.tutsplus.com. The same mob who did the tutorial on the excellent dark button graphic.

Just when I think I’ve learned all I need to know about Photoshop to get by, I learn a bunch more. Keep it coming!
