Shepley Bulfinch 2010 Quote Cards

Wednesday, 3 February 2010

Picking up where our annual posters left off, we designed and developed a series of bookmark-like cards for our 2010 annual mailing. They feature inspirational quotes on one side and architectural photo details on the other. The cards are die-cut with slots that allow them to interlock for assembly into a basic structure. These cards can also be used individually as bookmarks or pinned up for a daily dose of inspiration. A PDF of the cards can be downloaded here.

The format was inspired by the Eames House of Cards designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1952. The original 32 interlocking cards featured delightful and colorful images of what the Eames’ referred to as the “good stuff”.

The inspirational quotes speak to the wide ranging and deeply human impact of our work and lives. Whose words inspire you? Share your favorite quote with us in an email.
