Part of the graphic design curriculum at the University of Alabama, I was tasked with making a business card, postage envelope, letterhead, and note card for Alfred Hitchcock.


Featuring The Birds, if I got to rework this piece, I’d more effectively contrast the birds in the bottom-right corner. Their red legs pop but the grey outlines are too subtle.

Also, I learned from the instructor that there are Postal rules about how imagery is may be located on envelopes—the birds along the bottom may interfere with how automated barcodes are printed.

The exercise was to use imagery that would exude the celebrity in question. As Hitchcock is popularly known for his films, I opted to thematically use a film reel frame and black & white imagery. I contrasted with red since it’s foreboding and associated with blood.

Except the business card, each piece of stationary highlights a different Hitchcock film.
