Business cards, the bit of you people take home. The thing that connects you to people, unless of course they lose it. Let’s hope they don’t lose it. That is why I have one of those old fashion pleather business cases to stash em’ all. I used to have three artist cards that doubled as postcards (I love post cards, and why not make others want to share your work with people way out of your little artist sphere?). View them by clicking on the example below:
The thing is I have given most of them away and my work has changed greatly (see for yourselve on my portfolio page). Therefore it is time for a new business card. In the summer I changed my logo:
I also started playing with some images. You see I think having an images on your work is a good idea but my newest work would be best and this isn’t it:
Still I think it is time to play around a bit. It is imperative that business cards give the person the information they need as clearly as possible whilst being aesthetically appealing, and all the better if there is something to identify your business with, a logo, a slogan, an image: something simple to jog the memory. Here are some cards I’ve picked up along the way. Best to see what is out there before printing up 500 cards and be stuck with them. What has worked for others?
