Business cards

It’s time to get some. I like the effect of the colour gradient and the olive/red colour combination is my brand now, I suppose, so I should keep it.

I have two designs in mind, one with an aircraft photo and the other with a stylized aircraft. I like the aircraft motif because it will pique curiosity and it’s memorable. That’s all you can ask for from a card.

Which style do you like better? I can always refine the design somewhat (one concern is the Star of David, for example), but I would like advice if you have any. Which style do you like better?

And now, a third option after some feedback elsewhere:

We value your opinion.

(The address and phone number on the cards are not real, for now.)

Bonus elucidation:

Original I had JPEGs in CMYK mode posted here, copies of the layered files I had saved for CMYK printing. Windows browsers could not read those files, so I resaved them in RGB mode and now they show up fine.

  • Wily:

    webs –

    The designs do not reflect your lustry coolness.

    Number 2 is a nice enough design, but the color is so bland…it’s like announcing to the family, “Tonight, we’re having BREAD for dinner!”

    Everyone looks up, gives you a blank stare and says, “And what else, dad?”

    Use more exciting colors and avoid the gradients – they tend to look amateurish.


  • Awww… I sorta like the gradient… I guess it depends on the quality of the print…

    I’d go with the first option. Star of David is just a historical fact. However, that card would only work for 101-related business. Otherwise, well… I sorta agree with Wily. You can do better.
