When I was newly returned from my service in Vanuatu, I asked my sister-in-law, Katherine, to design a business card for me. I used and updated that design — vertical, green, featuring the letters of a keyboard — for some seven years.
Then, to reflect my blogging at mistersugar.com, I designed a new card — horizontal, front and back, white, my pig icon on one side and a short version of my story on the reverse. That seemed to be an effective way to explain my name, my blog, the pig, and Peace Corps.
It’s been a few years since I stepped back from using mistersugar as my moniker. I figured it was time to update my personal calling card to reflect the simpler, humbler person I’ve been trying to be, so I ordered minimal, beautiful letterpress cards from Hoban Cards — the Agent design, just my name, my email address, and a phone number.
