1. Paste a link to the card you selected.

2. How many colors are used on the card? Three in all.

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 simple and somewhat eye-popping, using only one proper color, and black and white. Black is the main backdrop of the card on the front side, while green becomes the main color on the backside. The color of the text always remains white. This color palette is simple and easy on the eyes, therefore making it seem more professional in a sense.

4. Is there a noticeable difference in size between the largest text on the card and the smallest? Yes, since the logo consists of larger text and the informational text is rather smaller than the logo.

5. Which information did the designer make large and which did they make small? What information on the card looks most important? The only information they placed on the card was their email, their number, as well as a website. According to the smaller tabs located in the lower right-hand corner, the company has three sources of social media, based on the logos provided.

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 all in all is simply plain, making it look crisp and clean.

7. Is the smallest text a decorative font or a plain font? No, like the answer above, the text does not have any form of decorative font, save for the phone number, but itís not a huge detail to pay attention to.

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? Well, theyíre all easy to understand and identify.

9. Are all the lines of text centered, or are left edges or right edges lined up? The text is mainly aligned to the left, save for the front of the card, which consists of what the company does and their logo, which is centered.

10. When you read books, is the text normally centered, right, or left aligned? Why do you think that is? Books are normally centered, preferably to keep a border around the text for either small designs or to keep the focus of the reader centered.

11. Is it written in all caps, lower case, or title case? Everything is written 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? Books are normally written with upper and lower case letters, simply because thatís how the English language naturally works. Books also use proper grammar and structure, unlike most cards.

13. Is the design work on the card mostly simple graphics and shapes or mostly a large photograph? The design on the card is geometric shapes, consisting of lines that form triangles. † † † † †

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? Well, given the fact that there aren't many photos or images on the card, however the design that resides in the background could be used for just an excuse to give something easy to the eye. They would probably be more appealing in a larger font, but that's just my opinion. They are vector graphics, however, so I would assume they would look fine either way.

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 located on the right side of the card, however the left side contains the information of the business.

16. Do you see full sentences describing what the company does? The company decided not to use full sentences, but instead bullet-points in a sense. Either way, I know what the company does.

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? There is however an email address, and it is labeled info@amypye.com, however it is not directly labeled as an email. Although that is understandable, since they were going for a more simple design. And besides, you could clearly see that it's an email for you to contact.

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 backdrop color bleeds all the way through, there is no exact border around the card. The issues with borders for printing press is how precise each border must be, especially if they were thin.
