It has been such an exciting couple of months, and I have so many fun projects on the go that I can't wait to share with everyone in the upcoming weeks and months, so stay tuned for those!
One of the biggest challenges as a designer is to design for yourself. You have to find a way to create something that truly reflects who you are but also is inviting to all potential clients. A business card has the potential to catch someones attention and drawn them in to want to find out more about you. That means more work for me and more bills being paid. Hooray!
Here are some details about my card:
gold foil: I wanted to keep my business card clean, but eye-catching. I have always loved anything that is shiny, so I thought a gold foil on the front would be a great reflection me.
paper: I also wanted to consider the paper my cards were printed on. I wanted something that felt nice as soon as it was in your hands and gave you that "ohhh" feeling as a person runs their fingers across it. I decided on a soft touch paper, that is soft like the skin of a fresh peach.
painted edges: As a final detail, I decided to have the edges of my cards painted in gold. I think it was the perfect finish to really give that like extra, and leave a lasting impression.
I had my business cards printed with Zoum, a Canadian company based out of Quebec. I love that they are Canadian and are producing such amazing business cards at great prices. If you need a printer for business cards, this company is perfect.
