I like this card a lot, but...

The typeface for your name is great, but I feel you should use a more standard, non-serif typeface for your information. It would be a lot clearer and precise. Keep the white colour.

Althought this is subjective, I DO NOT like phone numbers to appear in a non-standard format, and would prefer to read this as (858) 208-7088.

Altogether a nice card. I like very much that is does not come out and state photography right away, but it is easy to grasp what you do.

Bad font choice IMHO, but what do I know?

the card looks great, i love the type, but use something a little easier to read for the secondary information at the bottom.

Change the black to 60% black and make the tint in the background 30% black. Boom.. instant class! At the moment it looks a bit 'gothic'. Also I agree on the point about the non standard phone number and the choice of fonts for info. Change them. :)

Bad typeface choice. "Porcelain" is more of a script/grungy font. It is not meant to bring class or anything like that.

The size of the type is just huge!! Type tends to look to amateurish if its bigger then 11 points......it also depends on how it is used, but in this case it is not working.

Create a "grid" so that the elements become aligned and not look like the elemetns are just floating. Also create a invisible frame to make sure all the elements have the same distance to the edges of the card.
Try to leave .25" free of text or info around the card to ensure a better alignment and of course...avoid getting some elements disappear when cutting the business cards. It is very likely that part of the letter "P" will get cut off after th cutting of the cards.

And avoid using 3 typefaces. Might be 2, but if it is 3 then switch to 2. And be careful when using script or serif typefaces. Don't mix them. Don't use 2 script fonts. If you really wanna use Porcelain for your name, use a sans serif typefaces for the info (tel, email, etc...)

yeah, i agree. I really do like it though. It does have a slight "gothic" look.
