Business Card

 

Starting with some colors – and circles, for some reason.  Nothing here.

Then just tried to be as clean as possible.  Again, not much here.  But it started to get at the idea of simplicity that I was looking for.

Then I realized that I was trying to design something entirely from scratch.  I needed some inspiration.  Turns out I found that inspiration in a p5 sketch I wrote a few weeks ago.  Grabbed a screenshot and used it as a template to draw illustrator objects, which I could then move around until it made “compositional sense”.Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 9.14.47 AM

And this is what I settled on.  I particularly like the starkness of the front.  Nothing but my name – the most important thing about this card.  On the back is where I played with the composition of elements more fully.  Getting the position and size of all the elements took some time just moving things around until they felt “correct”.Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 9.14.54 AM
