What Kind of Business Card I Have
I have a two sided vertical card with glossy front, large logo and contact info in lime green and black. The back is matte green with large logo reversed out in a paler green.
How I Created My Business Card
I first designed my logo isolating the eye from an engraved antique print. I used a fresh green colour for the pupil of the eye and repeated it in the text and colour bar at the bottom. I repeated a larger portion of the eye on the back of the card with a lighter green reversed out of the same green.
What I'd Do Differently
- I would add the words Graphic & Web Design as it is not clear what kind of design I do.
The Software I Used and Why
Adobe Illustrator. Works well with vector artwork.
The Layout I Used and Why
Vertical Layout. Just a bit different and worked well with my logo and text.
The Fonts and/or Images I Used and Why
I used an antique print as the basis of my logo so I used Trajan which is an elelgant classic serif font. I used Franklin Gothic Book for the smaller details.
The Paper and Printing Method I Used and Why
I used an online printing company to print my card as the quality of printing (offset) and card stock was excellent and the pricing was better than local digital print quotes.
