Black Ocean Press is a small independent book publisher based out of New York. They specialize in the publication of poetry books. In this piece I wanted convey the idea of a black ocean of text, creating puddles of text engineered out of their mission statement using various weights and sizes of Gill Sans. I wanted the text to take on an expressive quality, like many different voices making up a singular mission or message. The business card has been fashioned into a compact book mark. This give the card a playful extraneous purpose and strengthens the press' tie to literature.
