Personal Business Cards-Orange by TheRyanFord Personal Business Cards-Orange by TheRyanFord
I have a strange obsession with business cards. I suppose its the want for adequately stylish, yet professional self-represenation. The business card is all about self-promotion, so I always feel mine should be very attractive. I find, though, that as I come up with new ideas I find myself less and less satisfied with prior business cards.

Hence, I present to you my current design idea.
Its 2-sided (duh) and uses only one Pantone color. I made some pretty good changes to my prior design (unposted) after talking with *splat recently.

The simple design looks nice but the font looks very cheap imo.

They were too costly to produce, so they remain a concept. Thanks, though.

Yeah, I hear ya, I know exactly what you mean.
I've yet to make myself a business card, but I have a very clear idea of how I want to convey myself.
This one's really nice, but I got distracted by the small dots along the line on the info side, that's my only nitpick.
Great colour choice too, neat, clean and simple. Good opportunity to use PMS, with their being only 2 colours ;) . Would business card printing be expensive with that colouring method? I guess it would depend on how many huh..

Solid and sexy, just how I like my liquor. :giggle:

I liked the old one, in that the link on the back inversely complimenting the white line through your name on the front was clever run on sentence.

This is equally, if not moreso, professional and flashy though.

Hi +liquisoft, i hope you don't get annoyed by what i'm gonna say. :)

First and foremost, this piece is certainly simplistic to the top few level. It's plain yet clean and straight to the point. :thumbsup:

On the other hand, i feel that this design, though stylish, just can't show your strength of what you can do. Perhaps that's something you may want to take notice about. Furthermore, i just feel that your name "Ryan Ford" on the background looks "disconnected" from the overall piece.

Geez...so much for my "critique"... i can't even produce something decent. :D

Well you already know I like it, not that I didn't like the previous version. It's so... bold. The color is definitely the best part.

Let's see, what else did I say about this? I'm trying to remember our conversation.

Oh yes, the subtle yet useful line on the back that connects all the text is a nice addition to your previous design. As you had pointed out before, I like the way the text on the front and the text on the back connect with each other through positioning. The front color is superb, but changing from solid to a slight pattern was a big step that I give two thumbs up for.

Anyway, the design is quite nice. Literally eye candy! =)

This makes me think "orange soda" right off the bat. I like it, but I think the information side could use something extra. Like a symbol or logo to the left of the contact information. While I like the simplicity, it just seems like useless space to the extreme there--well, to me anyway. I like the face of the card though; very different.

Man -- you're really taking this whole business-card thing to another level, I see.

:lol:

I really like the simple design on the front and the pattern is quite pleasant to the eye. Really catches you, actualy.

And then you go to the back and it's even simpler! ..

Well, there you go: what more could you ask for from a card?

i thought your previous business card, with the line that shone through the card when it was held up to the light, had a stronger concept. this is good, but it's kind of plain.

Aparantly it happens to us all, the more stuph we do the more our old stuph looks like crap to us, nice card, it would cool if you made the card out of plastic and the dots (and maybe your name?) out of glossy plastic (or somenthing as hard as plastic but cheaper)

I think that you should have a left an organized space for your name to appear on the card over towards the left where you already have it placed. And then add a nice bright orange outline to it. :) But other then that Ryan, it's looking good.

Looks great mate; very unique but the back (the white side) maybe needs something.. that line is setting it of balance and it needs a counter.

That's nice - I can't comment on the technicalities of the printing, but I'd put your name above 'Graphic Designer' on the back too.

Hmm... 555 - I don't think you've put your real phone number on there. What a surprise!

Wow. Very cool, nicely minimal.

One color? I see two. Or is that like dotted or something...

Slick nonetheless, definitely a good face to put forward.
