  1. dude that’s awesome, only trouble though is this weird ring that I can see around his head?? not sure what that is and if we will end up getting that in our final products?? it starts from his chin and wraps up above his head….

  2. Hey Kyle! If you were talking about a mismatched black stroke then you have a damn good eye. That didn’t even show up on my screen, had to look at the CMYK values in Illustrator to see what was going on.

    My monitor is either way low, or yours is way high. Either way, thanks for the heads up man! Fixed now.

  3. If nothing else, Gum Cards are educational! I have to admit, a couple of these guys I had never heard of (Sagmeister and Johnny), and (like Solo71) I only know Olly by his name and work.

    I guess that leaves Draplin and Batman as the two I know something about… which makes me a Portland designer and a geek.

  4. Isn’t it kinda strange to have the johnny cupcakes guy in there?
    No offense to him, he does great work but I would have chosen someone like peter saville, michael place, etc.

    Other than that, they look great!

  5. Ron, I chose Johnny because (like you) I enjoy his work but more so his work ethic and philosophy. He and Aaron were my lead-off cards because of advice I received from both of them which ultimately led to conceiving the GUM CARDS project. Aaron’s advice was simply “invent something” and Johnny’s was always “do more of what you love”. I’ve never done a project where those bits of advice were put into as much action as this one. Bit of backstory for ya.
