Quickie Business Card Design

Quick Business Cards I’ll be meeting 4 or 5 people tomorrow, and I’m all out of business cards. So I made this one quickly, lost all my work in a weird crash, and then made it again. The picture shows the final card sitting on top of some uglier previous versions.

I’m not entirely happy with this, but my mindset of late has been to make things then deploy them to see what happens. We’ll see! I’ll make some design comments later, when I have some more time…gotta hit the sack now.

Aside: The “three dots” story comes from this post on gestalt I made a while ago. It kind of captures what I like about information graphics and graphic design in general: a small shift can make a large difference in meaning.


I got sick of the cluttered nature of this design, and started reducing the number of elements. You can follow along in Part II of this series.
