This week I designed my own Business cards. The first thing you probably notice is the size and shape. The size of the cards has a lot to do with the content. I want the content on the card to be minimal: my name, contact info and something to help the recipient remember who I am. Without making the typeface extremely large, the cards would have an overwhelming amount of white space. The design on the blue side of my card also fills much more vertical space than horizontal so the composition lends itself to a skinnier card. The shape comes from my inspiration here. The cutouts on the corners worry me a little because they could get caught when being slid into a wallet, but I think this could be resolved by using the right paper stock and possibly adding a curve to the edges, as seen on the Antidote X cards that inspired me.
