Self promotion — Business Cards cont.

For my current business card (from Vistaprint), I took a minimalist approach to the design — I wanted the card to look professional and well thought out. I also wanted it to highlight my practice as a portrait photographer (specifically self-portraiture.)

I knew I wanted the card to be monochrome, and I ended up editing the original portrait

image so that the picture faded into the white background of the card, rather than there being a sharp border between photograph and background.

When it came down to picking font, I knew I didn’t want a generic type font for my card, I wanted something that would stand out and catch someone’s eye, but I also wanted the information to be legible so I had to be wary of how creative of a font I chose.

When I ordered my cards from Vistaprint, I ordered around 100 cards and they were delivered within a few days (with complimentary silver card carry case as well.)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
