Simply having personal business cards to hand out is no longer enough, you have to think outside the box, just like Lyra Hill. Rather than presenting potential employers and contacts with any run-of-the-mill card, she gives people matchsticks and toothpicks inside an artful cardboard container. Once the container is opened, it reveals Hill’s contact information, demonstrating her abstract thinking in addition to her stellar art skills. If that doesn’t leave an impression on an employer, I don’t know what will.
In addition to being full-time awesome, Lyra Hill runs a blog entitled ‘It’s Always Winter in Space,’ which houses her comics, experimental films and video commentaries about her work. She’s currently based in Chicago, Illinois and frequently gets commissioned to design posters and tattoos.
