Bangers & Mash

Posted by Ruok On September - 16 - 2009

Bangers & Mash is an exciting new design firm that helped errm design my name card.

Yeah, I know it’s weird for an actor to have one, but I had it made primarily because of the workshop, thinking it would be of some use. So far, I daresay, I’ve given it out more to curious friends than people in the industry.

Anyway, I digress, this post is to plug Bangers & Mash!

These guys have been very helpful and I think the ideas that they come up with during the process was definitely not run-of-the-mill. In fact, they pooed pooed all my suggestions as “been there, done that”. I don’t know whether to feel insulted or blessed.

I decided to feel blessed. :)

This was the final draft of the card :

My personal choice was the last one or the middle one, but they told me this, amongst other things :

“The first one doesn’t fit the stereotype of you / shows another side of you, so you won’t get typecast in roles.”

Needless to say, I was sold and the next issue was the color of the background, whether to choose a white background and make it look more like a Polaroid. In the end, the white one was chosen as it would make more visual impact and get people to talk about it.

So the final product was :

Cool huh?

Do check them out and see other samples of their work!
