  • Business card logo feedback

    Hi all,
    Working on my business card for a video editing, motion graphics & brand design company:
    http://i.imgur.com/NNKX9ta.jpg
    I have 3 variations for front and back. Could you let me know if you prefer a certain design combination and any tweaks you'd make?
    Also, if you don't like any of them, let me know, that's also really useful.
    Thanks again to the community.

    I like the ideas you've come up with and trying to implement motion.

    For the first one (all white one) you may want to flip the direction of the motion to give off the sense of moving forward, rather than backward.

    I like the creativity of the colored one, but it isn't exactly easy on the eyes; not sure how long I could stare at it without getting a headache.

    I'm no print expert but I would make sure you print samples before printing 500 cards, because the transparencies and blurs that are in the designs may not print so well.

    I like the text on the back of the second one better because it's easier to read.

    There's a lot of empty space on both of the back designs; have you played around with some other ideas for the back of the card? Empty space can work in a design (works better in the first card) but it can also make a design seem unfinished if not executed properly.

      I agree. Good concepts and, for the most part, good execution. I think "B" is the best. However, I think it would really benefit the back if you lost the logo in the corner and incorporated some of the blended lines you used to on the front to fill up the empty space where the logo is (but shouldn't be).

          You've got all of the elements for one kick-ass business card, just spread out across three variations. I think the color from the second should be avoided - that'd be more expensive to print, and I think the contrast of the bright white poking through the black is going to stand out enough and really look awesome on a business card - especially under something like fluorescent light if someone hands one to another person in an office. So I'd suggest the second variation, but monochrome - the blurring on the first one probably wouldn't translate to the cardstock texture very well.

          For the back, I think the actual text formatting is superior, but could use a pt. increase, and change to the thinner font used in back A, as well as removing the logo. Lastly, a nitpicky detail, you should maybe try splitting up the phone number from one long string in to the ***-***-**** format - it just makes more sense to the human brain that has seen phone numbers formatted like that since birth. There's ways to do it stylishly - could always use thin periods or interpuncts instead of hyphens and it'd be a world of difference in terms of legibility.

          Despite my paragraphs, you do have a good card here, and it'll go from good to great with a little fine-tuning. Cheers!

            Thank you so much for your input. What you said about Joomla templates basically dictating the look and feel of the site is basically the reason I've held so long to my current site. I have not found...

            Keep in mind the cost of the tooling the dye is a one time cost. The next lot of cards wont include the tooling cost.
            StudioMonkey is also correct of the cost vs. your volume. 100 cards may run...

            Joomla is my CMS of choice. For that matter, I'm working on some template modifications for a Joomla site this morning.

            For a small personal site, Joomla might be overkill. It's certainly...
