For this design challenge, you're tasked with designing a business card for a freelance designer. You can use Photoshop or Illustrator.
Watch the video above for instructions on how you can go about designing this business card in terms of document setup for PS / Illustrator. It will also show you how to use the required business card mockup to present the design.
The following information must be present on the business card design:
This has potential, but the "Freelance Designer" does not have enough contrast against the dark blue background, and this makes it very hard to read. I do like most of the rest though.
Been designing for 4 years now, never attended a design challenge, please don't roast me Gary
I do like the colors and the design to the right -- but the type and the type layout leaves a little bit to be desired. Just a few small adjustments in terms of alignment, and font selection and it'd be a lot more solid imo.
This is my first job in the design challenge. I hope to hear constructive criticism.
A major no that I see occurring here is mixing the serif and sans-serif fonts. It can be done, but rarely. Also, no sense of visual hierarchy here, I'm not sure which element is the most important, or where to look first, because it's all very similar in nature.
Not bad, the "specializing in.." text looks a bit funky with the rectangle surrounding it, not being centered or anything. The rectangular outline is unnecessary and I'd get rid of that. Thanks.
Really like the Mock-Up. Enjoy critiquing :)
I would definitely not use that font, as it's a very common and over-used font. And serif fonts are generally the type of fonts you would avoid for most tech/design related businesses. Thanks!
This is my second entry. Hope you like it.
Unique concept. Simplicity is lacking because you have a lot of different type-styles occurring here with different fonts, letter spacing, etc.. Not much white space in certain areas, like above the name and below the address bar. Thanks!
Despite that you had to scale down the size of the entire image, the type is still way too small, even if you didn't have to scale it down. I can tell based on the size of the text in relation to the other elements. You need to increase the size of the type significantly for readability. Thanks!
My second Entry on here! This time something more modern; I excuse for the unreadable text (happended because fo the downscaling Process)
Not a bad entry, though I'm not quite sure about the white icons against that teel color. Thanks.
last entry for me.
icons used are from iconfinder.com
had to scale both of my entries down because they were too big, so hopefully i scaled it down correctly
