Red Hand

Red Hand is a get well card featuring a red hand and arm reaching out into the night sky from the deep blue sea, and text ‘Get Well Soon!’

The card has to be taken with a sense of humour. And as has been said, it is when times are difficult that a sense of humour is needed most. Of course, the unwell person is the recipient rather than the giver. So the giver has to be sure that the recipient is in a good enough state of health to be able to see the funny side.

Anger And Humour

After all, the last thing one would want would be for the recipient to bin the card in anger. And anger is entirely understandable when a person is in ill health. But if the recipient has retained a sense of humour then a red hand clutching at the stars will make them laugh. And if not laugh then smile. Ah, what it is to be unwell. Nothing is clear, everything is clouded.

Designs By Saul Bass

A word about the design: We made this card by cutting out the hand from coloured paper and scanning it. Then we placed it between layers in Photoshop (our preferred tool for laying out cards) and added the text. So much for the technique – but what about the inspiration? It is of course, inspired by the dramatic posters created by Saul Bass. He was a graphic designer who was internationally famous for his film posters. Moreover, he designed some of the most iconic films to grace cinema screens. Not only that but his designs are instantly recognisable. They are dramatic in the extreme. Yet they are simple in essence. A red hand, an arm, a figure twisted and turning. And strong, contrasting colours. There are the hallmarks of his designs.
