For a project, we had to make our own business cards: one personal and one professional.
I didn’t think it would take this long to make them but it did, and this project was actually a challenge. Coming up with designs that would be appealing for both of them were difficult, and it took me forever to find good fonts.
Personal Business Card
I chose to do this design and have a saxophone because I am a member of Paladin Regiment Marching Band in Furman University.
I really like the design because I think it looks really cool. I really like how the saxophone takes up the left side of the front page, and it looks like my name is coming out from the horn like musical notes.
I made the back simple because simple is always good. I added a treble clef to connect back to the saxophone.
I used two types of fonts in this design. Here are the fonts I used for each of the words:
-Name: Nueva Std Bold
-Furman University: College Regular (because it’s a college)
-Alto Saxophone: College Regular
-Paladin Regiment Marching Band: Constantia Italic
-Email Address: Constantia Italic
Professional Business Card
My professional business card is on my part-time job, which is being a Japanese tutor. We could have made up an occupation but I wanted to do something that I really am doing instead of making something fake; plus, I love my job. I could use my bilingual skills to help people out and teach the people the beauty of the language and the culture.
On the front, I chose to put an American flag and a Japanese flag to represent that I teach Japanese to American people. I made the font of my name and the title of my occupation to look kind of like “Japanese.”
On the back, I listed some of my information and put a picture of a translation icon because that’s what I do: translate languages.
Again, I chose two fonts in this design. Here are the names of the fonts that I used:
-Name: SF Shai Fontai Extended Regular
-Occupation: SF Shai Fontai Extended Regular
-Furman University: Adobe Garamond Pro Italic
-Email Address: Adobe Garamond Pro Italic
