Here at MOO, we know it pays to get creative when it comes to promoting your work and standing out from the crowd. So we met Angie Crabtree, a Californian-based artist whose Business Cards are making a lasting impression. Etched with her sparkle and a premium finish using our Super Business Cards.

So Angie, can you tell us about your work?

Sure! My paintings consist of photo-realistic diamond facets that are enlarged 1,000+ times. Viewers experience the small, powerful object in an up-close and personal way. I donate a proportion of my earnings to The Greener Diamond Foundation. It’s a charity that runs a 100-acre farm in Sierra Leone that houses, employs, and educates child soldiers who left the mining industry.

What design and artistry techniques do you use?

I use oils and reflective glazing techniques. So the kaleidoscopic shapes create a hypnotic brilliance similar to the real thing. My work aims to challenge the standard American idea of beauty and objectification: symmetrical, proportionate, soft, striking, and sexy.

How do you mainly promote your artwork and projects?

Instagram is big for me right now. I have 37.5K followers so it’s a really good way of getting my work noticed. Networking events and getting yourself out there is also a must. The fact that I can have many different designs on my business cards is super at grabbing people’s attention too. I also chose to produce a collection of stunning Square Business Cards using MOO’s Super High Gloss finish.

Brilliant work Angie! And boy, do the Business Cards shine bright. If you need a touch of inspiration or help promoting your project or business take a look at how MOO could help.
