Type & Layout

The Portrait Prospector, also available in a horizontal oriented version, is a well balanced center justified card that's easily adapted to accommodate different lengths and amounts of contact information. The name font, set in Quarto Bold, gives this card a striking look. Its glyphs are very heavy, but also well contrasting and unique among other display typefaces. The info text is set in Assistant, which adds nice legibility and balance.
