Here are some more black and white postcards that I sent out that first year in business. If I remember correctly, I usually had these printed up 4 to a page and sent them out every other week, as a way of bombarding potential clients.
By November of ’89, I had a couple clients who were starting to use me on a regular basis, and I started doing a bit of work for a local department store, designing artwork for their newspaper ads (Steketees, which is now no longer in business). Aside from Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine, though, the client list was still primarily Grand Rapids based. This would change beginning on nearly the last day of the year.
