1. http://cardobserver.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/austin_walsh.jpg

2. How many colors are used on the card?
Five colors were used

3. How would you describe the color palette? Is it monochromatic? Does it use analogous or complementary colors? What do the colors make you think about the business?
The color palette doesn't quite match any of the categories. The colors look clean-cut but the pop of color make it look fun and creative.

4. Is there a noticeable difference in size between the largest text on the card and the smallest?
Yes.

5. Which information did the designer make large and which did they make small? What information on the card looks most important?
The company's name is larger, because they want you to remember it.

6. Is the largest text a decorative font or a plain font? (If you aren't sure, try googling images of plain and decorative fonts)
Plain font.

7. Is the smallest text a decorative font or a plain font?
Plain font.

8. Which type of font is easier to read? Which type of font is most effective for marketing? Is there a reason there might be a difference between the decorative nature of the largest and smallest text on the card?
The larger and smaller text is written in the same font. A decorated font would catch the eye, but some fonts could be too hard to read.

9. Are all the lines of text centered, or are left edges or right edges lined up?
The name of the company is closer to being centered and the smaller text is lined up to the top right corner.

10. When you read books, is the text normally centered, right, or left aligned? Why do you think that is?
The text is usually aligned to the left side, because we read left to right.

11. Is it written in all caps, lower case, or title case?
All caps.

12. Are books normally written in all caps? Explain your answer - why do you think they use the upper/lower case letters basically the same way in most books?
No,

13. Is the design work on the card mostly simple graphics and shapes or mostly a large photograph?
Simple shapes.

14.Think about the images on the card. What else might the company use them for, besides a business card? What sizes might they be used for? Which looks better both large and small - vector graphics (images drawn with the pen tool and shape layers) or photographs?
The card is made of simple vector graphics.

15. The unused area where there are no words or pictures is often called negative space or white space (even if it isn't white). Is there more area on your card that is white space - or that is filled with pictures and words?
Most the card area is being used. Small stripes are used to take up some of the blank space.

16. Do you see full sentences describing what the company does?
No.

17. If you see an email address or a phone number, is it labeled ("email address: xxx@gmail.com) or do they just put the address without telling you it's an email address? Why do you think it is or isn't labeled?
The address isn't labeled because it's common knowledge.

18. Is there a border or outline around the edge of the card like a frame? Or does a solid color "bleed" all the way to the edges? Can you think of any reasons related to the printing process that might make a border cause problems?
Color bleeds to the edges of the card. If printed wrong the border could be crooked and the image could be off center.

1. Paste a link to the card you selected.
~ https://www.flickr.com/photos/ragsnehali/3046227913

2. How many colors are used on the card?
~ 3

3. How would you describe the color palette? Is it monochromatic? Does it use analogous or complementary colors? What do the colors make you think about the business?
~ It has analogous colors. The colors make the business look nice.

4. Is there a noticeable difference in size between the largest text on the card and the smallest?
~ yes

5. Which information did the designer make large and which did they make small? What information on the card looks most important?
~The title was larger than the description and the contact information was bold.

6. Is the largest text a decorative font or a plain font? (If you aren't sure, try googling images of plain and decorative fonts)
~plain font

7. Is the smallest text a decorative font or a plain font?
~plain font

8. Which type of font is easier to read? Which type of font is most effective for marketing? Is there a reason there might be a difference between the decorative nature of the largest and smallest text on the card?
~ Plain font is easier to read in most cases because you donít have the fancy distraction. Fancy font is most effective because it gets peoples attention. The larger font will be the name of your advertisement, the small font gives a description, and the bold is what they want you to remember.

9. Are all the lines of text centered, or are left edges or right edges lined up?
~ They arenít lined up all together but the individual font lines up.

10. When you read books, is the text normally centered, right, or left aligned? Why do you think that is?
~ The text is right because thatís how we read; it makes it easier for us too read.

11. Is it written in all caps, lower case, or title case?
~ It is written in lower case and caps.

12. Are books normally written in all caps? Explain your answer - why do you think they use the upper/lower case letters basically the same way in most books?
~ No because punctuation usually isnít all caps or all lower case.

13. Is the design work on the card mostly simple graphics and shapes or mostly a large photograph?
~ Shapes

14. Think about the images on the card. What else might the company use them for, besides a business card? What sizes might they be used for? Which looks better both large and small - vector graphics (images drawn with the pen tool and shape layers) or photographs?
~ The image is usually used for eye catching. Most business cards are small to fit your wallet. Both large and small fontís look good, eye catching images, and the title.

15 The unused area where there are no words or pictures is often called negative space or white space (even if it isn't white). Is there more area on your card that is white space - or that is filled with pictures and words?
~ There is white space.

16. Do you see full sentences describing what the company does?
~ No

17. If you see an email address or a phone number, is it labeled ("email address: xxx@gmail.com) or do they just put the address without telling you it's an email address? Why do you think it is or isn't labeled?
~ It just gives the email without saying ďemail.Ē It might not be labeled because most people know that if you put @xxxxxx.com itís usually an email or a way to reach them using technology.

18. [b]Is there a border or outline around the edge of the card like a frame? Or does a solid color "bleed" all the way to the edges? Can you think of any reasons related to the printing process that might make a border cause problems?
~ No. thereís two main colors as the background (pink and light pink). The colors are alike so if the ink is low it might look a little weird because the colors arenít correct.

Five colors are in use.

3. How would you describe the color palette? Is it monochromatic? Does it use analogous or complementary colors? What do the colors make you think about the business?

The colors seem to be complementary colors in my eyes. The colors seem to make the business very calming and mysterious.

4. Is there a noticeable difference in size between the largest text on the card and the smallest?
Yep.

5. Which information did the designer make large and which did they make small? What information on the card looks most important?
The card has every part of it at a size that isn't small. Everything but the name part.

6. Is the largest text a decorative font or a plain font? (If you aren't sure, try googling images of plain and decorative fonts)
The font of text is very plain looking, well, to me anyways.

7. Is the smallest text a decorative font or a plain font?
Nope, still very plain to me.

8. Which type of font is easier to read? Which type of font is most effective for marketing? Is there a reason there might be a difference between the decorative nature of the largest and smallest text on the card?
All of the fonts, because it's the same font. The font that is used throughout the whole card.

Most of the card is right edges, though on part of the card is left edged.

10. When you read books, is the text normally centered, right, or left aligned? Why do you think that is?
Usually, It's centered. I think that's just the author wanted it.

11. Is it written in all caps, lower case, or title case?
Mainly, all caps.

12. Are books normally written in all caps? Explain your answer - why do you think they use the upper/lower case letters basically the same way in most books?
Nope, they are normal not. Author wanted to fanny I guess.

13. Is the design work on the card mostly simple graphics and shapes or mostly a large photograph?
Really, it's as simple as it can humanly go, but in a good way.

14. Think about the images on the card. What else might the company use them for, besides a business card? What sizes might they be used for? Which looks better both large and small - vector graphics (images drawn with the pen tool and shape layers) or photographs?
They could use posters or a website. Like a poster or something. Any kind that looks good I guess.

15. The unused area where there are no words or pictures is often called negative space or white space (even if it isn't white). Is there more area on your card that is white space - or that is filled with pictures and words?
I see more white space than anything else on the card.

16. Do you see full sentences describing what the company does?
Nope, none at all.

17. If you see an email address or a phone number, is it labeled ("email address: xxx@gmail.com) or do they just put the address without telling you it's an email address? Why do you think it is or isn't labeled?

I see the label on the card. I think itís labeled on the card because that wanted to be informative.

18. Is there a border or outline around the edge of the card like a frame? Or does a solid color "bleed" all the way to the edges? Can you think of any reasons related to the printing process that might make a border cause problems?

The border is just a solid color bleed of black, just like the rest of the card.
Pretty much canít think of a reason other than the color becoming white if the printer doesnít print in color.

BUSINESS CARD DISCUSSIONS

1.) http://freedesignfile.com/95770-creative-suit-with-business-cards-vector-set-01/
2.) 3 colors are used on the card.

3.) The palette is well put together. The colors are not monochromatic. The card uses complementary colors. The card tells me that they (the business) wants me to come and check out what they have for me to buy. 4.) There is a noticeable difference in the text on the business card.
5.) The designer made the place/spot where you put your name big so that everyone knows it you that does whatever it is on the business card.
6.) The card has a plain font.
7.) The smallest text is in plain font.
8.) I think plain font is easier to read, but decorative font is much better for marketing. Sometimes most people donít know what the card says when they are reading the card; but when the text is decorative and big so that people can see it, it will catch some or even most peopleís attention to see what great of whatever it is that youíre advertising.

9.) The text is centered on the card.
10.) When I read books, the texts are aligned in the middle of the page. I think this is because the reader needs to be able to read the words and there shouldnít be words scattered everywhere.
11.) Some are written in all caps and some of the other words are written in all lowercase.
12.) Books are usually not written in all caps because the reader should feel how the narrator is telling the story. But if the narrator is mad and all of the words were all in caps then you would know exactly how they felt and the pain they were feeling. They use upper/lower case letters the same way in most books because they need for people to see that theyíre just as any other book; it may be just worded differently, may cause you to cry your eyes out because your favorite character dies unexpectedly. 13.) It is mostly a large photograph of what they are advertising. 14.) The company might use the image for a dance or an elegant party. Large always looks better. 15.) There is blank space but itís not white, itís black with gray lines going on an.
16.) No but on the flip side there is a giant pic of a suit on it which has to mean that they are advertising suits.
17.) The email address example is blank with (your name) in the middle of it; I think it isnít labeled as their own email address because they donít want random people giving away their email address or anything like that. 18.) There is a solid color that bleeds all the way to the edges and that color is black. A certain color may not be noticeable to the person who wants the color to be there and it will probably frustrate them to do it again because the same thing might just happen.

Post  Lauren S. on Fri Dec 05, 2014 1:27 pm

1. Paste a link to the card you selected.
http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http%3A%2F%2Fdzineblog.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2008%2F05%2F19.jpg&imgrefurl=http%3A%2F%2Fdzineblog.com%2F2008%2F05%2F36-cool-business-cards-you-should%25E2%2580%2599ve-seen.html&h=301&w=462&tbnid=DJt4pFxlky26dM%3A&zoom=1&docid=4P9c4XfY3sgUDM&ei=tUp_VJL_J4KmNtaYgNAH&tbm=isch&ved=0CD8QMygMMAw&iact=rc&uact=3&dur=264&page=2&start=8&ndsp=16

2. How many colors are used on the card?
Blacks and whites aside; there are only about 2 or 3 colors used on the card

3. How would you describe the color palette? Is it monochromatic? Does it use analogous or complementary colors? What do the colors make you think about the business?
The color palette is analogous, they make me think of something bright and modern.

4. Is there a noticeable difference in size between the largest text on the card and the smallest?
Yes.

5. Which information did the designer make large and which did they make small? What information on the card looks most important?
The personís name and statis is larger than the contact information. I think the name of the person you will be contacting is the most important.

6. Is the largest text a decorative font or a plain font? (If you aren't sure, try googling images of plain and decorative fonts)
The largest text is a decorative font, it is a bright color, is bolded, and has a larger font size than the small text.

7. Is the smallest text a decorative font or a plain font?
Itís a decorative font. It is the same as the larger text, but with a dimmer, less bright color, a smaller font size, and is not bolded.

8. Which type of font is easier to read? Which type of font is most effective for marketing? Is there a reason there might be a difference between the decorative nature of the largest and smallest text on the card?
The largest, bright and bold text is easiest to read because it stands out and shows importance. I think the contact information is small because if the name and occupation of the person gets their attention, they can look and know how to contact them. If the contact information was the largest and brightest, people wouldnít know who or what theyíd be contacting.

9. Are all the lines of text centered, or are left edges or right edges lined up?
The largest text is on one side of the card and the small text is on the other side of the card; they are aligned left.

10. When you read books, is the text normally centered, right, or left aligned? Why do you think that is?
Aligned left. Because we read left to right, aligning it left keeps the left side straight.

11. Is it written in all caps, lower case, or title case?
All caps.

12. Are books normally written in all caps? Explain your answer - why do you think they use the upper/lower case letters basically the same way in most books?
Books are not written in all caps. Writing in all upper case shows importance or exclamation. In a business card this makes sense because you want to pique the customerís interest, but it does not make sense in books because not everything in a book is meant to be taken as an exclamation.

13. Is the design work on the card mostly simple graphics and shapes or mostly a large photograph?
Simple graphics and shapes.

14. Think about the images on the card. What else might the company use them for, besides a business card? What sizes might they be used for? Which looks better both large and small - vector graphics (images drawn with the pen tool and shape layers) or photographs?
The images look like they could be enlarged and minimized and youíd still be able to tell what it is. Vector graphics look better than photographs when they are both large and small.

15. The unused area where there are no words or pictures is often called negative space or white space (even if it isn't white). Is there more area on your card that is white space - or that is filled with pictures and words?
More white space.

16. Do you see full sentences describing what the company does?
No.

17. If you see an email address or a phone number, is it labeled ("email address: xxx@gmail.com) or do they just put the address without telling you it's an email address? Why do you think it is or isn't labeled?
They just put the email address as it is. People can tell itís an email address because of the @ symbol and the website after the name.

18. Is there a border or outline around the edge of the card like a frame? Or does a solid color "bleed" all the way to the edges? Can you think of any reasons related to the printing process that might make a border cause problems?
There is no border around the edge of the card. A border could be a problem because it could be cut unevenly and it would look unprofessional.

No it is not label. Probably, because itís pretty straight forward. †
18. Is there a border or outline around the edge of the card like a frame? Or does a solid color "bleed" all the way to the edges? Can you think of any reasons related to the printing process that might make a border cause problems?

No thereís no border. No itís just meant to have a simplicity look to it because of the main subject which is yoga.

6. Is the largest text a decorative font or a plain font? (If you aren't sure, try googling images of plain and decorative fonts)
Plain

7. Is the smallest text a decorative font or a plain font?
Plain

8. Which type of font is easier to read? Which type of font is most effective for marketing? Is there a reason there might be a difference between the decorative nature of the largest and smallest text on the card?
I think that plain text might be easier to read, but decorative text might be more effective for marketing. if different fonts are used on a business card, it shows more of what the company wants to stand out

9. Are all the lines of text centered, or are left edges or right edges lined up?
The four boxes on top are lined up light to right, but at the bottom the company is centered.

10. When you read books, is the text normally centered, right, or left aligned? Why do you think that is?
Left aligned, to help make it easier to read, ad fit more words on a page then if it were to be all centered.

11. Is it written in all caps, lower case, or title case?
The four squares are title case, and the company is in all caps.

12. Are books normally written in all caps? Explain your answer - why do you think they use the upper/lower case letters basically the same way in most books?
No, what's upper cased is what the creator whats to stand out. The lower case, is details but aren't the main focus.

13. Is the design work on the card mostly simple graphics and shapes or mostly a large photograph?
Mostly simple graphics and shapes.

14. Think about the images on the card. What else might the company use them for, besides a business card? What sizes might they be used for? Which looks better both large and small - vector graphics (images drawn with the pen tool and shape layers) or photographs?
To have easier access to the company. Larger sizes might be used for things like bulletin boards, or sides of builds. Vector graphics works better to change the size then photographs. Photographs can show up blurry, while vector graphics can be easier to change in size.

15. The unused area where there are no words or pictures is often called negative space or white space (even if it isn't white). Is there more area on your card that is white space - or that is filled with pictures and words?There's more words ad pictures then negative space.

16. Do you see full sentences describing what the company does?
Nope

17. If you see an email address or a phone number, is it labeled ("email address: xxx@gmail.com) or do they just put the address without telling you it's an email address? Why do you think it is or isn't labeled?
Yes, i think it's labeled to help making getting into contact easier.

18. Is there a border or outline around the edge of the card like a frame? Or does a solid color "bleed" all the way to the edges? Can you think of any reasons related to the printing process that might make a border cause problems? The color bleeds throughout the card. i'm not sure of any printing press border related problems that can occur.

How many colors are used on the card? 3
How would you describe the color palette? Is it monochromatic? Does it use analogous or complementary? monochromatic
Is there a noticeable difference in size between the largest text on the card and the smallest? yes
Which information did the designer make large and which did they make small? What information on the card looks most important? they made the name the biggest and the other information smaller. the smaller information is more important.
Is the largest text a decorative font or a plain font? (If you aren't sure, try googling images of plain and decorative fonts) well its more colorful I guess
Is the smallest text a decorative font or a plain font? its a plain font
Which type of font is easier to read? Which type of font is most effective for marketing? Is there a reason there might be a difference between the decorative nature of the largest and smallest text on the card?
its all pretty easy to read.Also Im not sure which one is more effective.
Are all the lines of text centered, or are left edges or right edges lined up?
Most of the card is right edges, though on part of the card is left edged.
its on both sides of the cards.
When you read books, is the text normally centered, right, or left aligned? Why do you think that is?
Its usually to the left I think because it would be confusing if every book was read a different way.
Is it written in all caps, lower case, or title case? its in all caps
Are books normally written in all caps? Explain your answer - why do you think they use the upper/lower case letters basically the same way in most books? all books are in both lower case and upper case I think because you wouldn't be able to specify what was a new sentence or if something was said with more feeling.
Is the design work on the card mostly simple graphics and shapes or mostly a large photograph? I'm not sure because its just two cartoon pictures of a man and a woman.
Think about the images on the card. What else might the company use them for, besides a business card? What sizes might they be used for? Which looks better both large and small - vector graphics (images drawn with the pen tool and shape layers) or photographs? I'm not sure.
The unused area where there are no words or pictures is often called negative space or white space (even if it isn't white). Is there more area on your card that is white space - or that is filled with pictures and words? There is more words on the page then white space.
Do you see full sentences describing what the company does? no
If you see an email address or a phone number, is it labeled ("email address: xxx@gmail.com) or do they just put the address without telling you it's an email address? Why do you think it is or isn't labeled? Its only a website but yeah I think they are trying to make it easy to contact.
Is there a border or outline around the edge of the card like a frame? Or does a solid color "bleed" all the way to the edges? Can you think of any reasons related to the printing process that might make a border cause problems? The color bleeds through out the card I cant think why though.

2.3 colors are used White, Black, and Orange.

3. I feel that the Duotone colors are to show the simplicity and sleekness of the company.

4. Yes the Larger text is the most bolded and shortest line

5. The Largest text is used for the name of the company where as the small print is used for the website and phone/fax numbers.

6. The Larger text is Simplistic giving a very basic look

7. The Smallest text is the same basic font to go with the simplicity theme.

8. The plain font is easier to read but the decretive font appeared to be more affective

9. The card is center aligned

10. The text is normally right aligned so it can use up less space on the page

11. Everything but the link is written in all caps

12. No books donít use all caps so you can clearly see where the sentence starts and stops and to emphasize certain words

13. the card is mostly a simple graphic and text

14. The company might use this for billboards or marker on the building

15. The card is mostly negative space

16. No

17. It isnít labeled because I feel itís implied that itís a link


18. There is an Orange border on the outside that makes it kind of stick out with other white basic business cards

http://www.cardnerd.com/card-inspiration/smoulder

2. How many colors are used on the card?
-Two, red & black.

3. How would you describe the color palette? Is it monochromatic? Does it use analogous or complementary colors? What do the colors make you think about the business?
-These colors are not monchromatic. it doesn't use analogous or complementary colors. The colors are pretty primarily used.

4. Is there a noticeable difference in size between the largest text on the card and the smallest?
-Yes there is a noticeable difference in size between the largest and smallest text on the card.

5. Which information did the designer make large and which did they make small? What information on the card looks most important?

6. Is the largest text a decorative font or a plain font? (If you aren't sure, try googling images of plain and decorative fonts)
-The largest text is in plain font.

7. Is the smallest text a decorative font or a plain font?
-The smallest text is a plain font as well.

8. Which type of font is easier to read? Which type of font is most effective for marketing? Is there a reason there might be a difference between the decorative nature of the largest and smallest text on the card?
-I would say the normal plain font is easiest to read. The most effective font for marketing is Ariel. There is a difference in the decorative nature or the largest and smallest text on the card, and the difference is what is most important and needs to be read from the naked eye, to what you can look at after seeing what they put in large text.

9. Are all the lines of text centered, or are left edges or right edges lined up?
-The left edges are lined up.

10. When you read books, is the text normally centered, right, or left aligned? Why do you think that is?

12. Are books normally written in all caps? Explain your answer - why do you think they use the upper/lower case letters basically the same way in most books?
-It depends on the book, novels are mostly written in upper case, as i've noticed but usually it's in title case. if it is a thicker book with a lot of chapters it might be written in all caps to make more sense? i'm really not sure.

13. Is the design work on the card mostly simple graphics and shapes or mostly a large photograph?
-It is photographs in smaller form, they are all different and lined up.

14. Think about the images on the card. What else might the company use them for, besides a business card? What sizes might they be used for? Which looks better both large and small - vector graphics (images drawn with the pen tool and shape layers) or photographs?
-They could use the images for a logo possibly. they could be used to give you a picture of what the business does. I think smaller pictures look better.

15. The unused area where there are no words or pictures is often called negative space or white space (even if it isn't white). Is there more area on your card that is white space - or that is filled with pictures and words?
-Yes, there is an area that is white space.

7. Plain font.

8. Both are easy to read. Both are considering they are the same. The large font is more important information to have than the smaller font.

9. Centered

10. Itís usually centered. Because itís how we read books.

11. All in caps.

12. No. The reason the use it is because it catches the attention of more people, and its easy to read.
