Hi The "Your business card is crap" thread got me thinking that I need to get some cards made up. I'm a Visual Effects/Animation student and want to include a business card in the sleeve of my DVD show reel box i'll be sending out in a couple of months time. Now being a student I don't have a business or company logo to put on the card, and i think having a logo designed is a bit pretentious for a 23 year old grad starting at the bottom of the ladder in this industry. So i was looking around and remembered Moo Cards. I was thinking their slim MiniCards would be nice. They're about half the height of a standard business card and about as wide (thus half a cheap to have made up ) but they're printed on nice card and laminated with an eggshell type finish. I was thinking something like this would be nice: http://uk.moo.com/en/readymade/pack/8 They're clean, yet interesting, vibrant and memorable. They've got room for 6 lines of text on the reverse so a simple: Name Digital Visual Effects Artist Phone Email Website would be all i'd need to include. Do you think this is appropriate to get made? I was thinking of an alternative design to go on the back of the card as other people might have the same thing made up. I've got a "colour script" storyboard in the Lou Romano Pixar style that we've made for our final graduation animation film project (similar to this i just quickly found on google): http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_qkBN7bBq3.../Rs232wcKlPE/s1600-h/Colorscript-Assembly.png Which i think would add a really nice individual touch to the business cards but they're a bit abstract and slightly out of context if you haven't seen our animation film. However they'd fit on the wide cards perfectly. What do you guys think? - Standard size card or narrow 'minicard' - Template design (safer but not unique) or individual designs (more abstract but unique) - or perhaps why bother, a CV will do? Advice appreciated.
