    One of your links is broken.

    Can you give us a little more detail about what your project brief is?

    The image I can see with the plastic wrap and the marble seems to be a study in textures, that doesn't necessarily mesh with what might be the presentation of a business card.

    Looking at the business card itself shows a non-cohesive branding strategy that would be a no-go right out of the gate. I realize the info may be bogus, and that as a college student you don't have a pro site and maybe not the money to have your own email domain, but everything from your name, the company name, the website to the email addy just makes it look scatterbrained.

        Ah... now I see links to things other than your texture study.

        Business cards -
        What are the 4 fuzzy brush strokes for?
        Do you intend to ever use them in a vector-necessary capability? (such uses would include embroidery, cut vinyl sign lettering, window stenciling, 3D elements on your office wall signage, etc.)

        The paint spatters coupled with a grungy font. This not only looks messy and grungy, the colors are not exactly what one would describe as pleasing. Mustard yellow and grays with a grayed teal thrown in look very dark and grungy. You are also using a transparency overlay feature which is always a bad idea in logos. Transparency and spot colors do not work well together in Adobe softwares on print output.

        Both logos are 5 color. $$$

        On the A-frame sidewalk sign my first question would be, is the expense worth the result? Can you justify the cost against how much traffic such a thing would bring a design business? Maybe a quick-sign company, but not a designer so much.

        On the first sign, all of the comments regarding the ink spatter apply to this.
        Looks like you have this in a custom made frame. Bear in mind this sign is a ''print only'' piece. You can't do it in cut vinyl. You have to replace the sign face on every change-out. Build in a way to do that.

        On the second, it is never a good idea to insult your potential clients before they even walk in the door. Plus, even a poorly designed sign that is proving a point should be properly designed. At first glance, it comes across as an example of your work. If you are asking a question, put in the proper punctuation.
        Again, this is a print-only design. Not necessarily a bad thing, but cost of replacement and usefulness has to be considered.

          I do custom 3D signage and branded printed graphics for a living.

          Sorry, but that the A-frame is 2D. It's function is to show a flat piece of art, even if the frame is custom.

          Here are some examples of 3D branding design:
