|Alan Luckow has done most of Woz' personal design work since the late 1990's. When he expressed an interest in having a business card done that was kind of special, I came up with the idea of a metal card. I had proposed this idea before to other clients, but they had always chickened out at the last minute. Woz didn't.|

I designed a translucent card and two metal cards for Woz. This metal one is the one he showed to Colbert. He wanted something unusual. I mentioned metal to him and he loved the idea. So I designed this card with an additional feature that allows him to shoot a laser through the tiny logo at the top and project an image.
