Foreign Policy Design Group: Darryl Jingwen Wee Stationery

As part of a recent site update, Foreign Policy Design Group added Darryl Jingwen Wee‘s business cards to their portfolio, whose unique look and production process caught my eye:

‘Trans’ is a Latin noun or prefix, meaning ‘across’, or ‘beyond’. Designed for a translator and writer for the arts, these cards reflect the process of the vocation and personality of their owner. Published articles by the writer were taken and turned into handmade paper, imbuing the essence of his craft into his identity. Contact details were then hand-printed onto each individual card using a transfer marker. Just as a translator’s role is that of bridging language boundaries, this process of transference from one medium to another is reiterated in how each card is made. Every card is handmade, and therefore beautifully idiosyncratic.
