Business Cards

Business Cards

For next Wednesdays session we needed to have a set of business cards to show we're progressing with our individual efforts of making a name for ourselves within the world of graphic design. Plus when the opportunity comes along what's worse than meeting a potential client and not being able to leave them with your details. Before summer I designed and printed some of my business cards but wasn't totally satisfied with their outcome, This week I've tried to pick up from the point I left them at and give them a bit of a re-vamp.

In terms of budget I think sending off my design to a printing company to get some nicely finished prints would be ideal, but due low funds at the moment I'm pre-longing ordering with a company. I think being given something handmade is much more personal and satisfying to receive.

I started by thinking about what techniques I could use that I'm already well experienced in doing and would be effective as communicating myself as a designer. I found some hologram foil in screen print which as soon as I saw I thought would work well the stock I'd chosen. Using spray mount and a roller I layered up lots of piece of multi-coloured paper, so that the sides of my card would have a series of stock fading from yellow to purple. I thought this would link in nicely with the hologram foil print because when you hold it in the light you can see all the colours of the light spectrum.
