Who are the people behind Instagram’s most-followed handles? Soon-to-be-shuttered iPad newspaper The Daily wants to know, and has a video series titled “#No Filter: Behind the Lens with Instagram’s Biggest Stars.” They’re creating short profiles for each iPhoneographer to give a glimpse into their lives and their motivations.
Editor’s note: The creative photographic negative business card idea that we shared recently was pretty popular with our readers. Here we’ve asked Steph Goralnick to share how exactly it was made in case you want to make your own.
The realization that I had run out of my regular business cards the night before I was scheduled to attend a weekend-long special event inspired me to create a small edition of extra special cards on the fly. I was aiming for a simple design with a unique construction that would showcase my skills as both a photographer and a graphic designer. Due to the fact that time was an issue, traditional vendors out of the question; and since I didn’t need more than a couple dozen cards, I decided to make them myself at home using an inkjet printer and some negatives.
Here’s an amazingly awesome idea for business cards if you’re a photographer or photo enthusiast. Brooklyn-based photographer and designer Steph Goralnick created the above business card by hand, embedding some film between two layers of heavy stock. The resulting business card looks like 35mm slide film, except the film used was a negative.
