Been having some fun with my personal branding. I drew the crest originally to be the design on my data CD/DVD cases that my clients would receive with their final files.

Gorgeous! I like that man w/ top hat and monocle. How did the printer make the ink goes from bright magenta to burgundy?
Awesome! Really awesome!
Just lovely John, finely crafted ;)
@Inka: I hand drew the crest, but the letterpress simulation and photo zoom/focus effect are courtesy of Photoshop :) I was attempting to give myself a visual of what a foil would be like instead of ink.
You got me fooled! You've achieved real letterpress effect there. For foil, I think maybe you need to add some contrast highlight (overblown light area on the crest). Hey, you're the master here ;-)
@Inka: good call. that would really sell it. BTW I am in love with your logo!
Very, very nice!
Aww, thank you John! That means a lot! Love your work.
Oh this is stunning!
man that is beautiful, the "9" totally makes this for me.
@Brandon: Good to know! That piece is strategically placed there to help people mentally with pronouncing my last name! (9'er not neener)
John, this is fantastic. Just gorgeous stuff.
This is beautiful.
absolutely great! :)
@Inka, in real letterpress this is possible by using a split fountain.
@Erica, that's good to know. I have yet to see an actual letterpress piece done that way. Have you seen/done it? I've used the old-fashion letterpress that used round metal ink plate.

@Inka Mathew Sorry to get back to you so late, but the split-fountain technique can be done on flatbed, cylinder presses (like Vandercooks) and not on platen presses (which is the one you describe with the round metal ink disc). I have seen it done, yes.
