Help me create an awesome business card design!

MainSubFeature, Quick Thoughts9 comments

Ok guys and girls I’m working on getting some business cards done for my project ( in case anyone didn’t know). Now, I’m not sure how many of you have ever had to design your own business cards but let me be the first to tell you, it’s no easy task. So I’ve decided to make things a little easier on myself and get help FROM YOU! Yep, I’m going to have a little fun and at the same time put this blog to good use. So, with all that said, below are a few designs, take a look at them and tell me which if any you think is best. I’ve made it so you can choose 2, so feel free to vote for the top 2.

If you need some info on what the site/business is, check ou the project page for the details, or just go to the site.Smiley Face

If you know somewhere GOOD to print cards, both locally and overseas, let me know or if you have any other comments on the designs or suggestions, just leave it in the comments section, or email me directly


So at the suggestion of a few people I decided to add one more design that was a lot simpler

  1. Danika says:

    Design 3 is my vote, the others are either too “busy” or lacking some element.

  2. Marc Gayle says:

    I am going to have to agree with Danika on that one, actually.

  3. Aurie says:

    I think that #5 and #1 would be in the running for me

  4. fran says:

    I didn’t see the ‘they all suck button…lol design 5, i like design 6 also, i’m assuming it folds. As for the rest… dude!! the psychedelic era is over!! please, when its time to add other info on the card, its gonna get crazy!! I believe in the KISS theory… Keep It Simple Stupid!! But then, maybe I need to understand the rational behind the design, what message do u want ppl to leave with when they see ur card?

    • akil says:

      Thanks fran! Well the most important impression I want to leave with people when I hand then a card is ‘wow, this is unique!” And as a result they make a little extra effort to keep it. Most of the designs(excep number 6) are front, and then back

      Your advice to keep it simple is definitely something I want(ed) to do, but at the same time try to make it unique and visually attractive.

      I have some ideas around the printing and cutting, but the next hurdle will be to find somewhere to do that affordably.

  5. fran says:

    have a look at these sites and be inspired. If you need help with execution and production let me know.

  6. Christene says:

    I think you need to go back to the drawing board. However, If I was at gunpoint and had to choose the bottom half of number 3. I have to agree with Fran, KISS all the way.
    For printing, I have used uprinting and overnight prints, both very good.

  7. Akil says:

    Ack! Curse you guys, now you’re making me feel like I need to go back to the drawing Board.
