New number, new business cards.
Changing countries every so often requires one to change their phone number as well. For me, the beauty of it is that I get to try new card designs.
I’m a fan of MOO’s minicards. The fun-size cards are easier to carry and store, and always a conversation starter. I’ve ordered multiple batches of different designs over the last decade, and naturally I went with them for this batch as well.
I had just finished creating a draft of a design for my website, so I would be using the colors and the fonts from that. That was a no brainer.
But, because of the shrunk surface area, I had to print information on two sides: one side would get my name and title, the other would be my contact info.
I had actually done this before. Centered everything, and all was well.
However, over the years of witnessing the ceremony of exchanging business cards, I watched how people had a certain way of handling the cards.
So I designed the cards to be taken with the left hand, as drinks were usually held in the right. I also made it so that, when flipping over to the other side, peoples fingers would not cover any information.
Additional information in limited spaces
I’m a UX generalist, and my title changes from project to project. I do accessibility, usability, user research, testing, and of course design.
There was no way to fit all of these on the small cards.
There is also the case that not everyone I meet needs all of these; some are interested in help making their iOS apps more accesible, while another might want guidance with getting a user research project started.
So I created a MOO sticker book for this specific issue. (Yay, excuses!)
Every sticker book has 15 pages of 6 stickers, for a total of 90. As with other MOO products, you could make 90 different designs and get every sticker to be unique, or you could design 1 sticker and get 90 of the same.
I wrote down the main areas of interest I work on:
UX, Design, Usability, Accessibility, Testing, and Research.
I opened Sketch, chose a few colors, and wrote my intention:
Let’s talk about this.
Having done 6 stickers, I got 15 identical sheets of stickers.
And they turned out just fine. The quality was a little below my expectations (hey MOO, matte sticker book stickers, please!), but they look fantastic on the cards.
Oh yeah, forgot to mention: That “handle area” also doubles as a sticker-holder in case I’d need to add this additional bit of info!
I’m honestly very excited to start giving these away.
Can’t wait for the UXR Conference, which is just 2 days away!
Download The Design Template
I’ve created Sketch files to create the MOO cards and stickers, which made it very easy to upload designs and have them printed. You can download the Sketch file, which also includes my sticker designs above.
When you are done designing, just hide the safe guide symbol, export the artboard, and upload to MOO.
UXR Conference Giveaway
I cannot compete with all the promotional stickers in the swag bags given at conferences and events, but I would like to give away 5 sheets of these stickers at the UXR Conference. Come, say hi, and ask for one!
