2. How many colors are used on the card?
Mint Green, White, Black, and Gray
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 go very well together. The colors arenít monochromatic. They donít use analogous colors and iím not really sure if the colors are complementary colors but the colors do complement each other.

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

The person didnít really use a different text size. They only had a different text size in the logo but between the two they are very noticeable

The most important part seems to be the logo because itís the biggest and have the largest text.

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 text is plain there isnít any decoration to it.

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

The smallest font is plain, all the text on the card is 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?

The plain fonts are better to read and itís better on the eyes. The more plain the font is more for business things. You canít read the decorative text itís really small.


9. Are all the lines of text centered, or are left edges or right edges lined up?
No, the text is more to the left and the logo is centered.

10. When you read books, is the text normally centered, right, or left aligned? Why do you think that is?
11. The text is normally all left aligned because a lot of people will stop reading if they are reading a block of text and itís all centered.


12. Is it written in all caps, lower case, or title case?
Lower case

13. 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 arenít in caps, no one wants to read anything in all caps. I think they use upper/lowercase letters to be easy on the eyes.

14. Is the design work on the card mostly simple graphics and shapes or mostly a large photograph?
They are simple graphics, nothing to large and nothing no one recognize.


15. 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 may be used for billboards and on commercials. They would probably have to be bigger than they are on the card because no one would be able to see them.

16. 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 white space than words

17. Do you see full sentences describing what the company does?
There are only 4 words describing what the company does

18. 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?
No its not labeled because they seem like it is really obvious to what they are and most people will already know what they is.

19. 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 there isnít any frame or the words donít go to the end of the page. Its just

http://graphicdesignjunction.com/2013/04/business-cards-design-fresh-examples/

2. How many colors are used on the card?
3 colors are used in 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 seems simple, itís not monochromatic. It uses neither analogous nor complementary, because the colors are white, black, and orange. The colors make me think of a fall or autumn kind of business.

4. Is there a noticeable difference in size between the largest text on the card and the smallest?
Yes, the more important stuff is bigger in font, than the less insignificant things.

5. Which information did the designer make large and which did they make small? What information on the card looks most important?
The design of the card is large, and the contact information is small, the contact info because is on a white and black background.

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)
Iíd say the largest text is a plain font.

7. Is the smallest text a decorative font or a plain font?
The smallest text is a 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 plain font, the most effective font or marketing is the creative font, the larger font of a card is more decorative because it wants to leave an imprint in your mind, and the smaller font is information.
9. Are all the lines of text centered, or are left edges or right edges lined up?
The right edges are lined up.
10. When you read books, is the text normally centered, right, or left aligned? Why do you think that is?
Books usually have right aligned text, I believe because itís easier to read.
11. Is it written in all caps, lower case, or title case?
Itís written in title case.
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?
If books were written in all caps, the author is basically shouting at you, and if itís all caps it doesnít catch the eye, thatís why the use the same sort of writing in a book.
13. Is the design work on the card mostly simple graphics and shapes or mostly a large photograph?
The design work on the card is 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?
A poster or TV commercial. Bill boards and advertisements. Small and large vector graphics look good, but only large photographs, not small photos, look good.
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 a lot of white space on my card.
16. Do you see full sentences describing what the company does?
No, just a brief summary.
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 address without telling us itís an email, because it has the @ sign.
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 and the color bleeds out to the edges, I think the reason the printing process that might make a border cause problems, is because it may be too abstract and the design could smudge together.

2-14 colors are used
3-it looks like the rainbow
4-yes its noticeable
5-they made their name big and all the information like the address and fax number small
6-the large text is in a plain font
7-the smallest text is in a plain font also
8-the plain font is easier to read.
9-left edged
10-left aligned. I think that is because we automatically look left to right when we see a group of words.
11-the tittle is in all caps while the information is lower cased
12-books aren't normally written in all caps because it makes it seem like the writer is excited or yelling.
13-simple
14-they might use it as their logo on the things they make. Small. Vector graphics.
15-more area that is filled with words
16-no
17-yes itís labeled. I think itís labeled because if it wasnít the person reading it might get some of the information wrong.
18-it has a grey boarder. I canít think of a reason why it might cause problems

2. How many colors are used on the card? two

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's just black and white, but it has a professional look to it.

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

9. Are all the lines of text centered, or are left edges or right edges lined up? The title/logo and name are aligned to the left and the information is aligned to the right.

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

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

1.http://thefrugalgirls.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/FREE-Business-Cards-For-Mom.jpg
2.5 colors
3.The color palette looks alright. It doesnít seem to be monochromatic there are 5 different colors on the card. On the card they have the title of the company in white to make it stand out. I would say that the green background make it stand out and make it memorable.
4.The company name and the personís name that is on the card. The contact and location test is much smaller.
5.The personís name is important because when greeting the person it makes you look more professional by knowing their name. The company name is important because you know what the place is called. The smaller text is mostly the contact information and location which I think should be larger.
6.The largest text is plain font.
7.The smallest text is plain font.
8.In my opinion I would say that plain is better because it gets right to the point unless you advertise different styles of text there shouldnít be anything crazy on it. You could also use decorative to grab the customer and have them remember you. I canít say which could work better.
9.The text is placed on the left side of the card.
10.The text is mostly seen on the left side in books because we read left to right.
11.I would say that the owner and the company name should be in all caps because it makes it pop out. As the customer reads it they will see the rest of the information.
12.No, not really because using capitalization itís not very important unless itís describing a name.
13.There are simple graphics and shapes in it because the background needs to be the less important thing so the customer doesnít spend time looking at it. The information on the card is the important part.
14.I would say that using the pen tool would be a lot better for shapes than to use shapes, because they would not be able to be reshaped.
15.You would probably want to put pen tool shapes in the white spaces to add more features.
16.No. Most business cards donít have full sentences, the cards are used to advertise. Advertisement should be a short and simple thing. You want to grab your audience with simple jingles to have them remember you.
17.I would say that people could figure it out. Most of the time anything that has an ď@Ē sign in it is probably going to be an email address.
18.You would run out of space from the borders and you wouldnít be able to put sufficient information on the card.

Decorative font makes the card look more creative and helps it stand out. It should also help represent what kind of audience or clientele the business should have. Since the email is in plain text, it will be easy to read.

9. Are all the lines of text centered, or are left edges or right edges lined up?
Everything is centered except for the text that says owner/baker which is left aligned.

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

11. Is it written in all caps, lower case, or title case?
The parts of the card that are supposed to be capitalized are. The parts of the card that are supposed to be lower case are.

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 arenít normally written in all caps because they donít need everything to stand out. They want to keep the look consistent.

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

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 company could use them for customer loyalty cards. Small might 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?
There is more white space than space that is filled with pictures and words.

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 address and phone number because most people expect that info on a business card.

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 a small border around the edge of the card which is the shape of a cupcake. Some borders might make a card too wide for someone to stick in their wallet.

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

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?
The decorative font sticks in your head which is why it's larger. The font is used as a logo, like how the soda brand Coca Cola has it's own font. The smaller text is easier to read because it has the information that matters and not marketing techniques
9. Are all the lines of text centered, or are left edges or right edges lined up?
They are all centered
10. When you read books, is the text normally centered, right, or left aligned? Why do you think that is?
Left aligned because we read from left to right

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, it is traditional to only use uppercase to draw attention and to begin a new sentence.

Simple graphics
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?
Advertising and marketing. The size doesnít really matter as long as itís proportional to the space around it.
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?
The front has a lot of negative space, but where the information is stored there is little negative 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?
Itís a well-known format that needs no introduction
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?
One solid color is spread throughout the whole card. I cannot think of any printing problems.

2. On the informational side, there are about eight colors. On the reverse side there are about eleven colors

8. The larger and plain font is the easiest to read. †The decorative and large font is most effective for marketing. †Larger, decorative text is more memorable than small, plain text.
9. The text is left aligned.

11. It is written in title case.
12. No they are not. †I think they use patterns similar to those of which in books because it is familiar to the person reading said business card and it gives them a feeling of welcome and comfort in the familiarity.
13. It is made of simple graphics and shapes.
14. The image could be used for other forms of advertising in larger sizes as well. †Varying sizes of vector graphics are much better and clearer than photographs.

1. Paste a link to the card you selected.
http://artatm.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/beautiful_minimalist_business_cards_1.jpg
2. How many colors are used on the card?
Two colors are 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?
I would say the color palette is monochromatic and makes me think of the company as professional and sleek.
4. Is there a noticeable difference in size between the largest text on the card and the smallest?
Yes, the name of the company is definitely much larger than the contact information.
5. Which information did the designer make large and which did they make small? What information on the card looks most important?
The designer made the company name larger and in a different font than his contact information, which implies that the company name is the most important text.
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, though not a very elaborate one.
7. Is the smallest text a decorative font or a plain font?
The smallest text is a 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?
Considering the simple nature of the decorative font, I would say they are both equally easy to read, though the thin decorative font is probably more effective for marketing than the plain font. I feel that the main difference for the decorative nature of the largest text is to call back memories of the logo.
9. Are all the lines of text centered, or are left edges or right edges lined up?
The text is left aligned, but the logo is centered.
10. When you read books, is the text normally centered, right, or left aligned? Why do you think that is?
Left aligned, because the human eye is trained to read left to right.
11. Is it written in all caps, lower case, or title case?
In a book, the text is written in title case.
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 normally written in all caps. I think the most logical explanation for this is that when teaching new readers, you can show them how to read and write in title case based off of most books.
13. Is the design work on the card mostly simple graphics and shapes or mostly a large photograph?
The cardís design is all 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 company probably uses their logo on brochures, as a letterhead, on employee uniforms, etc. The logo would therefore also be blown up very large or resized to be extremely tiny. Vector graphics resize much more painlessly than bitmap graphics/photos.
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?
Close to 50% of the card is negative space.
16.Do you see full sentences describing what the company does?
No. In fact, there are no complete sentences on the card.
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 is not labeled and I think that is because in todayís world, everyone knows that when you see the @ symbol and then a web address, it is an email.
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, and the solid color bleeds all the way to the edges. The border could get cut off and come out oven when the card is being cut.

1. http://media02.hongkiat.com/free-businesscard-templates/01-Front.jpg
2. 3 colours are used.
3. It uses a monochromatic colour scheme.
4. Yes thereís a large difference between text sizes.
5. They made the company name and the personís name large and the contact information small.
6. The large text is plain.
7. The small text is also plain.
8. The larger font is easier to read. Simplistic font is best for advertising and marketing. The reason simplistic does better is because itís easier to read and look at just from a glance.
9. Yes, the lines of text are centered to the left except for the name which is centered to the right.
10. It is normally aligned to the left in books because we read from left to right.
11. The large text is the only thing in all caps.
12. Books arenít normally written in all caps. They capitalized the large text to be easier to grasp attention.
13. The cardís design is mostly simplistic.
14. The designs on the card could also be used for advertisements, posters, etc.
15. Yes, there is more white space than pictures/words.
16. There are no sentences anywhere on the card.
17. Itís not labeled and is simply just in the format of an e-mail address or phone number.
18. Yes, thereís a border/outline. Although itís not a good idea to have a border because when it is cut it may look terrible and cut off parts of the border itself.

1. Paste a link to the card you selected.
https://www.camdevelopment.com/designer/business_card/images/11/business-card-2.jpg

2. How many colors are used on the card?
4 (or 5 if you count white)

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 are monochromatic and they make the business seem kind of earthy and green.

4. Is there a noticeable difference in size between the largest text on the card and the smallest?
Yes, definitely. Title/name is bigger and bolder than the rest of the words.

5. Which information did the designer make large and which did they make small? What information on the card looks most important?
The name is really big and bold compared to the rest, which is social media accounts, email address, and phone number, etc.

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)
its a very plain font.

7. Is the smallest text a decorative font or a plain font?
Also very 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?
The big, bold font at the top is easier to read because of size, but the style of it is about the same as the rest. The bigger and bolder the font is, the more it catches your eye, so the top font is more effective. I think there's a difference because the big font catches you and reels you in to read the rest of the card, if you're interested.

9. Are all the lines of text centered, or are left edges or right edges lined up?
Most of the words are lined up nicely.

10. When you read books, is the text normally centered, right, or left aligned? Why do you think that is?
its usually lined up to the left so when you read, you keep coming to the same aligned side to read the next line.

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

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?
Normally, they're in title case and they use all caps to represent someone yelling or anger or to just emphasize. They use them the same in most books for emotion and tone.

13. Is the design work on the card mostly simple graphics and shapes or mostly a large photograph?
It's made of simple shapes and graphics.

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 aren't really images they're simple stripes in the corner. They could use them for a logo or decoration. They look good big 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?
There's quite a lot of white 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?
The email address isn't labeled but the social media accounts have small icons next to them, indicating what they are. They probably don't say the email address is what it is because it's pretty obvious what it is.

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 a thin black border around the edges. The printer might not get the border right and have it off center or not even on the paper.

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 should have labeled them I donít know why they wouldnít do that
