Fake stationery for the fun of it

Perhaps it is some personal character flaw of mine, but I’ve always enjoyed sending letters on fake stationery. Not forged stationery, mind you, but hand-drawn letterheads from goofy entities—mostly made up. In probably what is a genuine character flaw, I use things like this to sort out people with my sort of sense of humor from all the rest. If the letterhead brings a favorable response, great. If it brings a solemn “what is this?,” I know I’m going to have compatibility issues with this person. I think we all do this, one way or the other, putting ourselves out there in a particular way and gauging the response.

What: Concept, design, illustration

For: various personal stationery letterheads

Client: self, early 1980s
