I think the text is way too small. I'm not sure that people are going to be able to read it. It's definitely different though...

I'd also play around with the text alignment some. The text on the top seems kind of squashed, and the logo doesn't appear to be centered with the text below it. Also, is that Comic Sans?

Dont put owner on the business card

Personally, I have never been a fan of photo images on a business card. They just feel a bit tacky.

Get a domain name of your own and have it redirect with frames and set up email forwarding. Just looks nicer on the card.

I find white on orange slightly hard to read.

I like it - for some reason it strikes me, and it made me visit your site so even better.

Buy your own domain - don't advertise a gmail or free web hosting account.
Don't say "More" in your list of services.

Both things scream "Person running a hobby business"

Choose two or max. 3 services to offer. Better yet, make a card for each service and make it specific.

Choose fonts much more carefully - they are not distinctive.

Actually kinda like the photo and the orange scratch pad effect as an initial-impact visual. Although the photo is slightly puzzling what it is communicating -- Person with consumer point and shoot camera -- how does that tell the story of what you can do?

Dont put owner on the business card

Thats the main one for me as well. I hate it when people put owner, manager, etc, etc on Business cards...

Bar that, I like it, maybe get rid of the Comic Sans tho... :cool:

dont like the camera to be honest, for a start, it doesnt look like a very pro camera, and it makes it look like a photographers card, when you do multipul things.

FWIW, to me it seems very amateurish. I don't like the colors and agree with the previously mentioned domain and email comments.

Putting aside all other comments, the shape of it looks too long. In the UK at least, standard credit/business card size is 85mm W x 55mm H.

Oh OK, let's be frank. Web design does not equal:

I'm only good at using iWeb...

It is.

Nothing about this business card says designer. The mark , and certainly not the type choice(please dont tell me that is comic sans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)...it screams HACK which is probably the truth.

What are you trying to achieve with this card?

Are you trying to get paid work?

If I gave you a proper job as a graphic designer, would you be able to carry it out?

Do you have the professional qualifications and experience?

Your card lists 'Advertising'. What kind of advertising?

That's such a large field - print, video, classified, pre-press, etc. I would be suspicious of someone who claimed to be professional in all these fields, they're rather mutually exclusive.

Would you happen to be in your teens or early 20's?

It seems like you think you can give anything a go, but dont really know how to do anything well.

I'm not ripping on you, I was exactly the same when I was 23, and I also designed a card for myself which had multiple even more outrageously unrelated fields of work listed on it.

Today I'm a sign language artist, and also am setting up a small company. I have two different cards - one is artistic/creative and lists me as a sign language artist, without going into any more depth, and the other is more formal and list me as company director.

Before making the cards, I had to think about:

- what kind of situation would I be in if it really mattered what kind of card I had? (ie. not chatting with friends or with people who already know me).

- what kind of people would I be talking to in this situation? - Arts curators, gallery buyers, arts funding bodies, or banks and business industry experts and contacts?

- what impression would I want to be giving?

Arts bodies want to see me as a creative, 'different' type who also also knows their field and can produce creativity with polish.

Business / industry sector types, especially for a minority culture start-up like me, want to feel they aren't wasting their time with me, that I'm not some punk wasting their time.

So I made two very different cards for these two situation, each has different energy, each has the minimum of words on and is as specific as possible about my unique selling point and particular expertise in that field.

In my experience, I get hired to do specific jobs, and if you're vague about what you are or what you do, then people will go for specialists in the area of work they want doing.

Cards are a little bit of a waste of time anyway. 99% of new jobs or comissions are through personal connections, either friends or family, or ex-work mates or people you used to work for.

One final tip - don't cover your face - people will remember you better if they have a reminder of your face on the card.

Hope that helps

I'm not a graphic designer and certainly no expert in this area but I happened to click onto this thread because I'm currently thinking about designing a website, so I'm looking at various logos and typefaces, etc etc etc.

Anyway here's my 2 cents (from the point of view of 'a person on the street that you might hand your card to')...

- The card would look immediately better without the text along the top. It looks like an afterthought. The font is bland and it doesn't 'fit' very well (overlaps the photo on the left slightly) rather than perhaps being centred between the edge of the photo and the right-hand edge.

- You definitely shouldn't list "More". What is "More"?

- Comic Sans has to be the worst font ever. Looks very unprofessional.

- The white text should be aligned (centred) with the "TBG Productions" text.

- A photo of a guy holding a cheap camera doesn't really spell out "Graphic Design/Advertising/Video Production/Web Design etc" to me.

- Overall the poor choice of fonts and layout don't really promote "graphic design".


Sorry if that all sounds negative. As I said, I'm no expert but many of the people on this forum are... I hope you take this all as constructive criticism and show us your next attempt... :)

yeah, alot of useful tips from the other members... you might think of it as a tiny billboard that needs to catch the eye and clearly define your service in a professional manner without making it too much to read. One number, one website, your name and service, and a memorable distinctive style- which you have done well imhop.

Lebowski
Nov 24, 2006, 04:54 PM
lose the camera, or use a pro model dSLR, not a point and shoot, very amatuer.

comic sans is terrible.

get a real email, not a gmail account.

other than that, its fine.

sushi
Nov 24, 2006, 05:37 PM
My comments, from a business perspective:

- The point and shoot type camera does not indicate professional. I would expect to see an SLR type camera.

- I didn't notice the line that ends with More until I read this thread.

- Speaking of which, what does More mean?

- Get yourself your own website and email address.

- The colors are eye catching. However, the card is hard to read and figure out what service(s) you provide.

- Might consider a different card for each area of service that you provide.

- The guy with the photo does not compliment the services that you say that you offer. No where do you state anything to do with taking photos, yet your picture indicates that.

Hope this helps.

Looks really bad, and borderline awful. Keep it simple and professional looking. The picture seams to be more of the focal point than the actual important stuff on the card. Don't use a picture on a business card, especially a stock photography type picture like that. Oh, and for the love of God, don't use Comic Sans, or anything that looks like it. You have the ambition, thats important, keep it. You can't get anything but better. Practice

Sorry to the OP, but this screams amateur/student. Maybe if your 15 this is fine, just having a business card printed at that age shows ambition, so stick with it and eventually people will stop saying this about your work.

However
Just so your spirit isn't broken, everyone needs to start somewhere, thus I present...my first portfolio from 2003:
http://www.jasondorn.com/version_01/home.html

As you can see, utter crap...eww really...this is bad :P Ahh back when I had the ambition of a student...and no skills. Kinda wish I could have kept that ambition though, but I digress.

Anyways compare that to http://www.jasondorn.com today's portfolio and you can see I've come along way.

So although this card sucks, and your next 3-4 will probably suck, eventually you will stop sucking. Every designer goes through a bunch of bad work before they get good at this, it's called experience. hmm that sounded really high school guidance counselor, hope some of this makes a point or two.

mkrishnan
Nov 25, 2006, 10:53 AM
I echo everything negative said so far...sorry. :(

But one more thing is that I think you should consider carefully why you are breaking from tradition and putting your name above your company's name. Your name should normally be underneath it, with the company name taking prominence. Although, let's keep it real...your company is *you*, right? So if you chose the company name, instead of calling it Steve Mason, Inc. or whatever, then... well, that is still consistent with my point. Whatever the reason for the choice, your name usually should be below the company title, and if you're deviating from that, make sure you're doing it for a thought out reason, and not "because it looks cool."

Good luck!

Xeem
Nov 25, 2006, 11:51 AM
I actually like the photo and orange, but it does scream "photographer," not "graphic designer." You do need a more distinct font, especially at the top of the card, and I would narrow the fields down at the top of the card if you are catering to large businesses.

I respect this post and the improvement over the course of a couple years,
takes guts to do that!
BUT ...experience, no matter how much you aquire, and I guarentee the OP will be working at WalMart in a couple of years and not in the design industry!
I went to art school, with about 30 other people in my class, we worked through 4 years of training, by very good teachers, we all graduated,
and about 5 or 6 of us are now professionals,
that was then...this is now...with the accessabilty of programs like Illustrator and Photoshop you get a huge number of people, no matter what age that want to be artists and designers... and most stink and always will....just because you can goof around with layers and set type does not mean you are a designer or an artist...or ever will be ... it takes TALENT...and with experience TALENT will grow ... but if you don't have any ... well take a look at sites on the Net, YOUTUBE gives a showcase to wanna be Director's ... and 99% of it is crap...

Sorry, but I don't really have any respect for you. I see your posts all too often boasting about your qualifications, belittling those with less experience and becoming hugely defensive about your own work if challenged. If you genuinely don't mean to be boastful and derisive to others, please have a look at how your posts come across (for instance, your posts in this thread — how can you say you don't boast about yourself or belittle anyone?!). I have absolutely no problem with constructive criticism, but I don't see how telling someone who's just starting out (and has the gumption to make his own business card) is going to end up "working at WalMart" is any any way helpful, it's just to make yourself feel like the big man, in my opinion.

Posters in this thread like RedTomato and mkrishan (to randomly select two) have been infinitely more helpful to the thebiggoose whilst managing to be critical.

Nov 27, 2006, 06:54 AM
What a troubling thread to read...

Although I think that there is a good side to criticism, I guess we all need to be more understanding sometimes, and as some people said here:
"I'm not into design or anything", well, then those are the people who have the most valuable opinions right? Because a good design work is supposed to communicate with the general public (or a specific one in some cases) and not to the "artists" and "designers" that float around this world.

I've studied both Design and Arts and I'm far from considering myself an Artist or a Designer. In fact the greatest Designers I've had as teachers we're always self-aware and humble and avoided those self-entitlements, never criticized harshfully any of my first works, and the funny part is that some of them didn't actually own a college degree, but they had the talent and the "eye" to see how to pass an idea, and that surpasses any School you can get into.

IMO the card is not brilliant, but I've seen a lot worst from people who should know a lot more, believe me... so my guess is... keep going, always remember that your card should communicate who you are and above all what do you want others to think you are, what you've done wrong in the card now, you'll see in a couple of years, people here have already said enough, eheh.
If I made that when I was 15, I'd be happy, congratulations. :)

Have any of you ever been through a REAL critique. Politeness nor coddling are going to help this young fellow. 15 or not, he can do better. To much bad design is perpetrated on the public. A pirated version of photoshop and an ibook do not a designer make.

Go to the book store and look through some design books. Take a sketch pad. Thumb through a book. Close the book. (Very Important) Thumbnail a possible solution. If the thumbnail spawns other ideas investigate them. Repeat.

Swashes of color, scribbles, paint splatters should never be used: cliche. The same can be said for throwing clouds in the background.

Get some decent fonts. Learn about type. Be able to speak knowlegably about type. Type by far is the most important thing. Small type is good but be mindful of your medium. Remember a business card is a hand held piece. Smallish type yields interactivity/

Learn creative suite. Anything with type should be done in a page layout application. Not photoshop.

Learn about the printing process.

Spend some time and learn your craft before attempting to build a clientele.


NOTE: Not insuinating you are using a pirated Photoshop.

i do not boast about myself...

and by the way,,,,I also volunteer teach one evening a week teaching "anime" to inner city kids to keep them out of gangs

Bwahahaha!! Classic.

(1) You've already dug the "look how great I am" hole. Don't compound it by trying to throw some crap on top about how you work with inner city kids. That's tantamount to the idiots who drop racial slurs, get caught, and then say "oh, I'm not racist - I have black friends!" Garbage. You got caught piling up a laundry list of reasons you're great. Learn from it, don't lie about it.

(2) It's a tad pompous to think that teaching inner city kids drawing keeps them out of gangs. It's also a little offensive to assume that just because kids grow up in an inner city that they need something like your art class to keep them out of a gang. Maybe they just have good parents, good teachers, or a solid brain and conscience that are serving them just fine. That's exactly the kind of statement people are talking about in here when they criticize your tone. You might benefit from learning the difference between:

"For the past few years, I was given the opportunity to teach art to inner city children, and it has been an incredible experience."

- versus -

"I also volunteer teach one evening a week teaching "anime" to inner city kids to keep them out of gangs."

Try being a little self-effacing. You'd be surprised how much more receptive people are to what may indeed be the truth if you show a bit of humility.

(3) In regards to the original post...
If you indeed want to get into the design business, everyone had fairly good advice thusfar (get your own domain and email address, don't make up a fake title for your own quasi-company, etc). But the most important piece of advice that's been floated is practice. Design CAN be learned. Look through every design gallery you can - start with the web, then go the boook store, and just look at great design, and look at bad design. Pick up a copy of "The Best of The Best Business Card Design". Copy stuff you think is great. And once you've copied it, copy it again using a different method so you can see the pros and cons to both. Build websites, then tear them down and build them again. Design is as much a product of talent as it is a product of repetition and comfort with the medium and the tools. The more you do it, the better you'll get. And you'll notice, if you browse through even the best designers' portfolios, that we all reuse themes, styles, and ideas more than once. It's part of the game. You'll eventually develop a style all your own, but in the meantime don't ever stop after your first or second draft. Redesign everything 5 or 10 times before putting it away. You'll be better for it.

The posts previous to this one may have been Politically Correct in your opinion, but at least they offered constructive criticism. If this is the same attitude you carry into the classroom then I would say you are more likely to create gang members than future animators. If you think someone's work sucks you could at least tell them why you think it sucks and give suggestions on how they could improve it. For example, your post sucks because all it does is bash the OP's work. Maybe next time you could include some suggestions on what the OP coud do better.
