Entry Description

While freelancing I wanted to create a set of business cards that would bring back some of the ceremony of handing them over to people I meet for the first time. I needed an idea that would use's ability to have multiple sides printed in one print run.

I love the adventure genre in movies and books and wanted to capture some of that to make something unique to me. Struggling with the concept I hit upon the idea of creating 10 different personas of myself titled 'The Gentlemen Adventurers'.

I took all the photos as selfies in a local costume shop that has over 3,000 outfits and props. Having art directed photo shoots many times before I got through all 10 personas in two 3 hour sessions.

My blog post ( about the process received a lot of exposure on design blogs and helped get my current job at Unity 3D.
