  • Business Card design.

    Now that I'm out of school I can finally work on designs for myself!
    Here's what I have so far...

    The card is designed to match my portfolio, I used the same paint stroke motif throughout it.
    I would possibly like to add my logo to the design somewhere... the font on the back is big enough I can adjust it to make room. The only reason I didn't include it in this first draft is because the digital version is on a hard drive I've misplaced.

    But I have a photo of the logo as it appears on the cover of my portfolio:

    I may make a new one with an "LA" instead of my initials but it would follow this same general pattern.

    Do you really need to use a font to simulate handwriting? If you want a handwritten look, why not just write out the words yourself?

      Oddly enough, that typeface actually is my handwriting. Haha.

      I'm not married to using it but I thought, why not give it a go? Lol

      I will definitely neaten up/straighten the letterforms though. They're admittedly sloppy... but then again my handwriting is terrible.

      Do you have any other font suggestions?
      I'm a fan of Bodoni myself, but its not very good at small sizes. Lately I've been using for commercially-usable typefaces.

        The rainbow brushstroke is very well done and looks great. I like the handwriting font, but my suggestion would be to use it only for the logo/business name and use a more easily legible font for the email address and backside. This is just my perspective as a student.

          Right, but B's point is that if it was actually hand-written, there would be more natural variation in like characters. The 6 identical k's (per side!), among other too-frequent matches, really expose it as not hand-written.

          marzbarz makes a good suggestion for preventing the overuse.
          I'd rather be killed than come to your party, but if you don't invite me, I'll kill myself.

            Try to use simple fonts that looksmore attractive and easy to read.
            even the design should be simple !

              Actually, I was referring to applying for employment. I'm kind of mixed on whether or not it would be a good idea, but I think overall, if the card is pretty creative, it could serve as a memorable token....

              Of the options you mentioned, upgrading the RAM will make the most difference for the cost. Eight megabytes of RAM is almost a bare minimum when working with Adobe's graphics applications -- 16 is even...
