    We sculpted the subject using 3D polygon meshes, then translated it into a bas-relief, deep and multi-level embossing brass tool.

    On the reverse you got one red Pantone offset print, then the other side is blind-embossed on a semi-wood, semi-synthetic fiber paper with vellum finish allowing extreme depth for embossing technique.

    We were running out of time to make tests and I was first sceptic on how the ink on the embossed reverse will react and the printer warned me about it, but I finally said “let’s go” and surprisingly the result was just great. This is exactly what I wanted: a link between Eric and his wish message.

    For the text, I’ve redrawn my favorite style of Nebiolo’s Neon typeface taken from a 1940 catalog and turned it into a typeface with the letters needed only. I always liked this typeface which was designed by Giorgio Da Milano in 1935 and never existed in digital form. It perfectly fits for a product designer and is also a timeless type design.
