First, thank you to all who helped me out by rating my first attempt at business card designs. As silly as it seams, a business card is often one’s first or second introduction and it does make an impression on people. It’s also an introduction for our congregation, so I really want to make something cool. But, most of all, I’m just having a lot of fun playing with designs, and it’s mentally getting me ready to engage a new community, helping me be a little more intentional about how I might start my time with UCPT.
So here’s my second attempt at a good business card (first try is here). While it is “just information”, I want my business card to say something about the church. Granted, I don’t yet really know UPCT. But, let me know what you think by clicking on the link and rating each design, and maybe offer some comments by clicking here. I received some great comments! So thank you!
I do have a lot of information I want on the card, including how to connect with me through my blog, on Twitter, and on Facebook, in addition to the usual cell phone and office info. The question was how to get all this information on a card and make the card look inviting and professional. I do want to use the church logo (the hands), and utilize the colors they are already using. They are using the Papyrus font for the church name (Option A), which, I agree, is a fairly overused font. But it does reflect their desire to be a more contemplative community. Though some people suggested I lose the PC(USA) seal, it’s important to me and means a lot to me.
Before we get to the latest designs, here are the results of my first survey. It seems Option D “won”, but the ratings are so close, I find them relatively inconclusive.
3.21 out of 5.0
3.53 out of 5.0
3.20 out of 5.0
3.79 out of 5.0
So, here are the new designs. Let me know what you think.
Please rate them ALL if you can. And thank you so much for your help!
