I’m excited to announce the launch of 1st Door Software’s new website, it can be found at 1stDoor.com. This was one of the funnest sites I’ve had the pleasure of building, much of the pleasure came from my exploration and convergence of HTML5, CSS3 & jQuery. All of these tools working together made for an easy development process and some clean interactivity. Unfortunately due to some confidentiality issues we weren’t able to launch the site with all of the applications that 1st Door Software had developed, but more will be added soon.

John Myers from 1st Door Software approached me in February about redesigning his website and creating a new logo for his business. John develops very high quality applications for iOS so he needs to represent that quality with his first impression, be it the website or a business card. Today, a website has depth and an unlimited canvas to tell a story, but a business card as a medium truly limits designers in many ways. A high quality business card goes a long way when creating an initial impression. Business card production can be done through internet vendors in a very inexpensive way but for 1st Door Software it was important that we created a unique and high quality card that represented their brand and in this case letterpress printing was the best process for the job.

Denver based print shop, Foils & Dies have been letterpress printing for over 20 years and after seeing just a few of the business cards they had printed in the past I knew they were the perfect company for the job. The letterpress typically uses magnesium or copper dies that a inked and smashed on top the paper to create a mild indentation that is a reverse of the die. Letterpress as trade is slowly fading away so I was very excited to have the opportunity to use the process, here are a few shots of the print shop and the final results.
