Business Cards: Ideas and Inspiration, Part II

Today we continue looking at business cards that stand out, and here’s hoping you get some inspiration and ideas! After all, you only get one first impression, so your business card should be something that showcases the best of your design abilities. On Wednesday we looked at the use of interesting shapes, 3D business cards, and business “cards” made out of other objects. Today, we’re looking at different techniques.

Color

Let images and color draw attention to your card. If your name incorporates a color, the reiteration on the card can create a memorable impression. Take a look at the elegant, striking, and fitting use of color on these business cards, all from Inspiredology.com.
