Pick A Card, Any Card


Several months ago I signed up for a letterpress class with Jordan Ferney, a San Francisco-based events planner, letterpress printer and blogger. During the class we were slated to print our own business cards - yay! Unfortunately, the class got cancelled - boo!

Well, the classes are being offered again and I just enrolled - yay! That said, I need your help picking out a design for my business cards. I've already created (and blogged about) a couple of designs, but I have new readers and I want to hear what everyone thinks. If you have a second, let me know which design you like best and why. Thanks, guys!

b. - for sure.
The reason for me is that a. seems to have too much blank space in my opinion and c. is too big. I think that b. is the perfect combo, it's clean, not overstated and not understated.

i choose b.
a seems better for a pad, the space at the top ready & waiting for a note.
c feels a tad out of proportion, the bird just a bit large and crowded in its negative space. design b feels more settled & reconciled. very nice clean design!

B or C both are clear, crisp, and large enough for my tired eyes to read!

Niko said...

i like a and b! i have a thing for things being not quite centered or even. the good thing is that you really can't go wrong with any of them! good luck!

i wanted to say exactly what niko are saying... :-)

B! The composition is elegant and the hierarchy of information totally works. I'm also inclined to vote for A because I love all of the negative space, but "Bows & Sparrows" gets lost with the contact information at the bottom.

Thanks for all the input, guys! I so appreciate it. :)

i like both B & c but i think i like C the best! How fun does that class sound.

Monica said...

I like the negative space in A, and the location of the bird vs. centered in B. But B might be a little clearer to read. Either or, you can't lose really!

oOO I like B or C...I like the size of graphics in C but I like the composition (not vertically centered) on B.

CECELIA said...

C! I love that it's centered and larger than the others. Pretty pretty. xo

John said...

I vote for A! It's simple, clean and I like the white space. Nice job.

KarinSf said...

I vote for B.
But like the idea of D! -bows and sparrows at top of card and the image just lower than centre of card, with art inspiration etc as is. Just a thought...

tami said...

i love that in a the bird looks like it's holding down the text.

b is pretty perfectly proportioned.

Oh wow! I love A. Love all that white space. But, B would be a close second if I had to pick another. :)
