Foil Stamped Chrome Effects

These were printed postcards, on foil stamped paper, digitally printed. The toner over the foil made some nice transitional color effects. We tested some colored foil, and pattered starburst foils. Was a really cool experiment, and we did a few projects using that treatment. I created the logos to make the type emblem and valve cover AmericorPress. The 3D type was generated in Adobe Illustrator (Dimensions). The original photos of the cars are from fellow MGA Art Director Chuck Jones.


From print to web and all the pixels in-between.
