The problem: I’ve never quite felt happy with my business cards, and then I realised it’s coz they feel so impersonal when they just share your name and basic contact info. Yes, that is the point of a business card and that’s how they are usually done, but I wanted something more.
The solution: I turned my business cards into an introduction and a keepsake of sorts. I did this by using a friendly greeting and conversational wording on the front along with the necessary info; I wanted to make it feel like I’m talking to you when you read it, so I kept the tone fun and informal. Then on the back I used close-up crops from my sketchbook to create an interesting visual element that will hopefully encourage people to keep it around and visible a bit longer than they otherwise might. And instead of just one design, I did twelve!
What do you think?
Did you go to the Durban Etsy Craft Party last week? Here are some tags I got to decorate for the event!
I’d love to hear your feedback! 🙂
