Assignment 24: Business Card research Due Dec 10

Post  Admin on Tue Dec 07, 2010 9:59 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 two more buttons to the right and use the one that looks like a chain to post a link. 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.)

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 of 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?

There are 3 colors: white, pink (fuchsia), and black
There isn't a big difference in the writing sizes of the smallest and largest font.
The largest font is a plain font.
The smallest font is also a plain font.
The disign is mostly simple graphics.
There isn't a really big space with no text.
I think simplicity makes for a good design on a business card.

2 The card is entirely yellow.
3 There is not a huge difference between the two, but it is there.
4 the largest font looks like a decorative serif.
5 smaller text is plain
6 the graphics are very simple. i would go so far to say decorations are nonexistent.
7 there is a lot of blank space.
8 i think a business card design is successful if you keep it simple. there should not be an overload of information, it should be kept to a minimum. i like how understated the business card above is, it is non novelty and gives you all the information you need.

cookie card

Post  celiae on Wed Dec 08, 2010 9:48 am


1. there is 1 color per card. ther is a chocolate and a vanilla cookie card
2. there is a pretty big difference. the title is bigger than the info.
3. the largest text is decorative.
4.the smallest text is plain.
5.the design work is very simple and plain bcause it's a cookie.
6.there is a lot of blank space on the cookie card.
7.i think simplicity and creativity are very important things for a business card. you want it to be simple so that the person isn't distracted by all of the design, so that they can easily see your information and name. but you want it to be creative so that the person recieveing your card is like getting a small sample of your work.

1.
2. Three colors are used, dark brown, light brown, and a light blue.
3. Yes there is a big differencr in the font sizes.
4. The largest text is decorative but in a simple, casual way.
5. The smallest text is plain.
6. It's very plain and simple most of it's design is the colors and the fonts but I think it's charming.
7. There is a lot of space with no text but you unless you're specifically looking you don't notice it because of the colors.
8. The design is simple but cute and funny. The colors and the bite taken out of it make me crave chocolate so i conclude it it is effective. A good design is simple, but catches your eye and brings a smile to your face.

there are five different colours used on the card.
no, there isn't much of a difference at all. it's the same font style but just different sizes.
the large text is a different colour than the smaller text, but still the same font style.
the small text is just white, bold, and the same font style as the large text.
the design work is mostly simple graphics but they use bright colours to make it stand out. it also looks to be ripped.
no, they use the majority of the space.
i think it has to be something that catches your eye, and has to be big enough to find if you loose it.

(top picture)


There are only two colors involved.

There is a big difference between the two sizes of fonts.

The largest text appears to be an arial font, both professional and aethetically pleasing.

The smaller text appears to be the same font, only in italic.

The design is mostly simple graphics.

Although there is not much blank space, there is not an overwhelming amount of information.

I think that divsersity, simple design, and colors makes for a good business card. Less is more.

1.

2. three colors. pink, black, and clear.

3. there's not a huge difference, but there are three different text sizes

4. the largest text size is plain. (so is the middle text size)

5. the smallest text size is also plain.

6. the design on the card is mostly simply. the only design really is an asteric.

7. there is a lot of blank space on the card, but a lot of it is taken up by words.

8. this card is a good design because it's simple, yet effective. it has a lot of words, but not too many, just enough to get the point across. the asteric on the card adds design and color, making the card a little less boring, and more enjoyable to look at. the whole design of the card is perfect for the business, and very creative because it's clear.

2. Nine.
3. Not a very big difference.
4. Decorative font.
5. Plain font.
6. Simple shapes, most of the card contains text.
7. There is some white space.
8. I think that the card should have colors and images that aren't very subtle, it should catch the potential customer's attention.

2.There Are five diffrent colors.
3.The title of the place there advertising is in big bold, letters info is smaller.
4.No type of decorative text just bold.
5.Nothing decorative.
6.In The large photo there are simple shapes 2nd card only contains text.
7.Most of the card that contains text does.
8.What would make a good business Card is if it has big decorative texts and niec coloring that will really catch the persons eye. But then again it really depends on the type of person your trying to attract to you business.

2. Seven .

3. Yes , the large text is in a 3D font ... maybe .

4. The large font is not so much decorative , but enough to get the audience attention .

5. Plain font .

6. It's simple with very few graphics .

7. No , the space and the text kind of helps each other out . I think that there is about as much space , as there is text .

8. I think it all depends on your business type . If it's for a Law Office.. keep it simple and casual . If it's for a Bakery.. display your work , but if it's for Kids Entertainment.. MAKE IT FUN !

2 - Four colors are used.

3 - There is not.

4 - Plain.

5 - See number four. (Plain. Razz)

6 - Mostly simple graphics, nothing overly flashy.

7 - Not very much, other than the design.

8 - I think it is a good design for a buisness car because for one, it states what the person with the business card does, as well as playing to that. Another good function of the card is the gimmick of folding it, that way the recepient of the card has something to do quickly, and have something they'd actually want to keep around to remind them about the business, instead of having a normal business card. I say that it depends on what customers you want at your business, and this is a simple, yet interesting, business card.
