IF_Impossibility

Not being a graphic designer, I am finding that designing a new business card an "Impossibility". I want it to look handmade and I want to see watercolour or coloured pencil texture. I dont want it to look too CG, but I also want it to look professional. At present, I am not achieving this! Argghhhhh....

Don't you just hate it when you have an image in your head but it won't appear on paper no matter what you do?? Good luck on pleasing yourself. Happy Earth Day.

Hey why don't you go to the library and borrow a book on graphic design and or check out a bookshop.
Im always looking at that stuff and there are always heaps of ideas, take your little note book if you look in book shop so you can jot down ideas that impress you
I think i'll take my own advice coz i'm in the same boat, working out a business card.
What if your red background bleeds over the edgea little in some parts?
Got any idea's for mine...
Threads of Conscience????? and all it encompasses

Great idea for this week's theme! Are you a Libran? I am and find it's often an impossibility to make a decision!

messyfish said...

Hi mel, thanks for that advice...I might just do that (but probably wont)
Caroline, I am married to a Libran, good thing about you lot is that when you finally do make up your minds...it is for certain! I am pieces by the way....

This makes a great design with them all together though doesn't it? I find it really difficult to decide what to put on business cards too!

One of these days, when you are wildly successful, these will hang on the wall. Keep them! I like that last one especially, too. I've seen some really cool and unique business cards on the web, but they are too time consuming/expensive to make if you're going to hand out a lot. Good luck!

I love you have spent so much time to develop it and the final one is a real success:)
Keep up your goodwork!
