‘Twas the season for spreading joy and cheer, and this Christmas we had the pleasure of working on a special project for Wansa Group, a commodities trading company in London seeking to elevate their corporate Christmas cards with a touch of sophistication.
When we received the request from Lauren, Executive Assistant at Wansa Group, her vision was clear as Wansa wanted an intricate design with a cargo ship delivering a present as the main feature.
Unlike our usual briefs, Cargo ships aren’t exactly known for their elegance… but presented with the challenge, we were determined to put our design skills to the test to produce something special.
After illustration and design work by Emma and Ella, we presented an option for Wansa Group to consider. The design captured the essence of the holiday season, blending the industrial theme of the cargo ship with the requested elegance and sophistication.
The proposed idea was to have a red present printed on 300gsm Fresco Gesso, completed with complex hot foiling of the ship and bow layered on top.
This was completed with branding to the back of the card to include Wansa Group’s main logo.
Building on the success of the card designs, the intricate design of the ship was also hot foiled onto bespoke tree decorations.
Using premium 700gsm Pristine White GFSmith card stock custom cut to the shape of the ship, these decorations were designed and created to mirror the sophistication of the Christmas cards, also featuring the business logo on the back.
“… the Christmas cards were a huge hit in our office. As a commodities trading company, dealing with suppliers all over the world […] one would think Christmas cards are of small significance.
Let me tell you…. the light relief, the joy, the pride in seeing the brand some of these guys have spent years working on, printed on the most beautiful, classy cards… it means the world to them.
From the bottom of my heart – thank you […]”
Lauren, Executive Assistant at Wansa Group
Our project with Wansa Group confirms that, even in the most niche industries, the spirit of Christmas can be sophisticatedly and artistically conveyed through custom design.
“It was a pleasure to work with Lauren and Wansa to create these designs – this included our most complex foil pressing to date and really gave an opportunity to show off the level of detail that can be achieved.
The outcome was a luxurious, hand pressed product that echoed the high standards of Wansa and the expectations of it’s clientele – definitely a highlight of TLPS’ business stationery!”
