Assignment 19: Business Card research Due Dec 4

Post  Admin on Mon Dec 02, 2013 1:39 pm

Do an image search on business card design. Find one that you think is well designed. Post a reply to this thread with:

1. A linked image to the card (instead of using the normal button we hit to host an image, go one button to the right and use the one that looks like a tv to embed the image. If you have trouble with this ask around the room, I'm guessing someone will know how to post the link to an image on a forum. If not, message me and I will try to help out if I can.)

(answer in complete sentences or paste the questions in your answer so I don't have to keep scrolling up to see the questions)

2. How many colors are used on the card?

3. Is there a big difference in size between the largest text on the card and the smallest?

4. Is the largest text a decorative font or a plain font?

5. Is the smallest text a decorative font or a plain font?

6. Is the design work mostly simple graphics and shapes or mostly a large photograph?

7. Is there a lot of white space (space without text) on the card?

8. What do you think makes for good design in a business card?

1. 

2. How many colors are used on the card?

There are three different colors used on this card. Light blue, black, and white.

3. Is there a big difference in size between the largest text on the card and the smallest?

There isn't too much of a difference between the largest and smallest text on the back and front side of the card. The text on the front side of the card is larger then that of the back. 

4. Is the largest text a decorative font or a plain font?

The largest text is a plain font generally.

5. Is the smallest text a decorative font or a plain font? 

The smallest text is a plain font as well. 

6. Is the design work mostly simple graphics and shapes or mostly a large photograph?

The design work is mostly simple graphics and shapes. On the back side of the card on the bottom, there is a light blue rectangular border.

7. Is there a lot of white space (space without text) on the card?

There is a lot of white space on the front of the card. On the back of the card there is less space. 

8. What do you think makes for good design in a business card?

I think simplicity makes for a great design in a business card. Keeping everything simple makes everything look more appealing while keeping an interesting logo that catches someone's eyes. The use of complimentary colors help bring the card to life as well.

There is a bit of space on the card, but how its placed it causes your eyes to move to the large text.

8. What do you think makes for good design in a business card?
I think you need simplicity, but to get your point across. It should have few colours so its not too busy, and a purpose of course. The font on the card should be simple enough to see clearly. All that should be on the card should be needed, and maybe a small logo/design.

The colors used are Black, Blue, Yellow, Green, Red, Gray, and White.

No there is not a big difference between font sizes but there is a difference.

It's a decorative font that ranges from colors; Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow.

The url is somewhat decorative it's bold and in blue.

To be honest I really don't know what type of imaging this is.

Yes it is because it looks like a website page.

The colors and the information given on the business card in my opinion.

Besides the back of the card with the information, the card caught my eye because of the font of her name and adding the bobby pin to show that she's trying to advertise about hair. She could have done more, but it's a good design for an easy route.
