I need your guys help! I'm redesigning cards and I need opinions over which is the best design! (And yes there will be a hero later) Take a look and comment please thanks!
My first attempt. Simple and to the point. I'm "thenoirguy" in most websites I'm on, so I thought that might help people look for me.
I'm not sure how many people have actually done this, but I've never seen a diagonal business card. Interesting and neat or just dumb?
A brick pattern with a spotlight for a more noiry feel. cool texture or too much?
Same design except without the drop shadows. Not sure if it's easier or harder to read.
Slanted with the Brick Pattern.
Slanted, but with a more simplistic sketchy style.
Longways and double sided. I like how it's set up, and the silhouette, and even the little markers for each of the options, but I'm not sure if I like the face on the other side. Plus I think I like this font better. Also, I started adding the jobs I do at this version and just stuck them into the previous versions. Does that work? Any job titles I should change, leave out, or include? Thinking about putting in modeler or storyboard artist.
Longways, with my face, and a simplistic style. Hmm, maybe I could fit the little icons on my tie...
And finally longways with my head on the bottom. Hmm, I didn't try a brick pattern for the longways version, does anyone like it enough to warrant one?
I definitely need to print all these out to see what they look like small, also if I can still draw on the faces. So what do you guys think? Which ones do you like the best? Which elements should I keep or put together? Is it better wide, long, or slanted?
