So I'm working on a new product-design that might need some explanation. It's not complicated or anything, just not told in 140 characters.
A while back I came across this cute set of cards at Studio Stationery.
I liked the idea that they're smaller than a normal (greeting)card and that you bought a set, so very soon I came up with an idea to create my own version.
The idea is this: a set of ± 30 cards (haven't decided the quantity yet, for now just following the example). On the cards are simple, sweet illustrations with messages that are a bit different from what you normally buy in the store. For example:
> Let me listen, I want to.
> Time for something sweet!
> See you soon!
> I'd rather not ask, but.. HELP!
> How are you? Maybe a stupid question, but I really want to know the answer.
> There's a cup of tea waiting for you.
The cards can be send to a friend (main audience is female) or secretly put in her purse when you're meeting. Just a sweet gesture that is not always expected or asked for, but always welcome. They're also very suitable for snailmail use!
I've been sketching, looking for the style I want to design the cards in and I think I've found it. Here are the first 4 examples. The back of the cards is going to be blank, so you'll have lots of room to add your own personal message. It's going to be a challenge to find a way to print them, but I'll figure that out eventually!
