This was a side project I did for a client. I wanted to help and I liked the business idea so I put together a business card to match. I had to touch up on key points so I made sure to ask the right questions. Being in the same entrepreneur spirit, I fixed my questions as if they were questions that I would ask myself. To make the best quality business card I had to fully understand what it is they are selling and what sets them apart.

Kalamay, also spelled Calamay, is a sticky sweet delicacy that is popular in many regions of the Philippines. It is made of coconut milk, brown sugar, and ground rice. The Filipino treat is usually wrapped and tied in banana leaf. That same wrap was what I used in the shoot. The leaf was very sticky and needed a spray down. The water incorporated a heavy and wet feel to the photograph. I was glad because it only added to the natural look of the image itself. I wanted to add some dimensions to the photo so I ripped strips from the leaf which was surprisingly easy. The weaving design was inspired by the construction blue print of which the Petronas Towers in Malaysia was designed on. The pattern also reminded me of Weaving done in authentic villages.

All in all it came out to become what I was going for and also perfectly represent my clients. Everyone is happy.
