When I lived in Palmer, Alaska I created a business named Mat-Su Valley Programming, which I quickly changed to Valley Programming. I did a lot of research on local businesses and then started mailing out postcards like this one. Years later I still don’t like the postcard, but I do like the logo, which I sketched on an iPad when I was on short vacation in Seward, Alaska.
(I have this theory that things like postcards should be like art, where the person receiving it thinks, “Darn, I hate when people mail unsolicited crap to me, but I just can’t bring myself to throw this one out because I like the way it looks.” I’m not an artist enough to pull that off, but that’s my theory.)
