    i have a new client who wants foiled business cards (for their logo). they told me the price they got from their old GD was 13 cents per card @ 10k, but that is about the best price i can get before markup....

    I see. I guess I was too worried that if I used a thicker type face, it will compete with the name too much. I could definitely try though....

    Nice lion.

    I think the color one has just a little too much going on--too much of the extra shadowing and the off register shapes and the highlight around the dark outline make it blurry....

    Might be.
    Consider ads that you might place in print, events you might participate in the future.
    Even on a business card, that thin face in a knockout is tricky. I would find one with more...

    I like it! Esp. the "do not eat" part. Are those really your eyes?

        Cool! I've got green eyes too and people are always asking "are you're eyes really that color?"

          Looks cool. Good work.

          Here's a little tweak. Line the copy at the botton, with the 'r' in 'portfolio'. If you must.

            I like the layout James especially the type treatment (not too sure if you need your name horizontally top left??

            personally though I would let the work inside your portfolio do the talking not the cover.

            That is only my opinion though...

              Oh yeah pay a little more attention to the kerning throughout the word 'portfolio' as stated above.

                Right, I've fixed the text block lining up with the 'r' (I noticed that as soon as I posted it!) I've also adjusted the kerning, and made the cross lines of the t and f line up with the x height on the r.

                My reason for doing a cover page is partly to show off some more artistic work to compliment the corporate work that I've got inside.

                  Since I am not in the job market, I don't deal much with the portfolio issue, but I will say I like that. No critique, just a vote.
