Selecting the proper design for your personal or company business card is an important task. Generic and lifeless business cards that don’t speak to your skills or brand is like shooting yourself and future business in the foot. That is why I suggest designing and developing a fresh new business card that no one has ever seen before. People want to work with the cutting edge and not something that others have used over and over again.
“Generic and lifeless business cards that don’t speak to your skills or brand is like shooting yourself and future business in the foot. “
Shawn Ryan, Singer, Actor, Comedian, lover of life and chances are, of YOU too!, came to me for a fresh new business card. The original idea for the business card was to mimic a California drivers license. Creating a “Hey you gave me your drivers, ooo wait” kind of interaction that makes an impression and stands out from the other cards that one would collect at a networking event.
After designing three options for Shawn, we decided that a more clean approach would be best. White background with a featured portrait of Shawn. The face of the business front and center. Contemporary type highlighting name, contact info, and list of skills and services.
Here is the final business card that Shawn Ryan selected:
Fresh, clean, personable, and highlighting skills and services.
