So I’ve designed a logo for my girlfriend, and its just a very simple black and white wordmark logo with a matching submark.
However, she wants to have one of these printed on her business cards but with gold foil.
My question is: Since her logo is just black and white and will be presented as such across all of her social media accounts and Etsy account, is it okay to print this logo in gold on a business card? Does it even make sense that this logo is only going to be gold on this business card? She only wants the logo, so there’s no other brand elements to really add, like there’s no brand patterns and no real color palette (at least not yet, i’m trying to convince her otherwise but she’s a die-hard minimalist if you couldn’t tell).
Or should we just consider redesigning the logo to incorporate gold so we could do these business cards with gold foil and have it all be consistent and avoid any confusion?
Anyways, I know this may be an obvious question but for whatever reason, we can’t land on a definite answer. I’m straight outta college and I’ve always been taught that logos and especially logo colors need to be consistent across all media- print or digital.
But now I’m wondering if it even matters in this case since it’s just black and white? And there’s no other brand colors established for it anyway? Is there even an issue here? Am I just paranoid and overthinking it? Are these too many questions? Lmk
