Taken from Mr. Burkhard of Highland High SchoolBusiness Card in Illustrator
You must have completed the previous logo assignment in order to complete this one.You will create a business card that includes the logo you created in Adobe Illustrator from last class. You created two, so pick your best one.
- Business Cards will be TWO SIDED! Your customer is going
all out, please incorporate an eyecatching design on the BACK of
the business card, as well as the front! This means that you will have
to create TWO canvases, one for the front of the card and one for
- Cards should be created on 2" x 3.5" Illustrator canvas. You can use either
a landscape or a portrait card. If you wish to use a non-standard
shape or size for your business card design, that is fine.
- Be eyecatching and colorful (backgrounds and colors
are up to you as the designer.). Your designs should reflect the
personality and products of the company! DO NOT simply stick a photograph
on the card and copy and paste the business text and say you are
done, I expect you to DESIGN this card. If you are stuck, come see me for ideas.
- Display the company logo prominently.
Include the Owner’s Name, Company Name, Business Address and
Phone Number and Website Address. All of this information
is seen below. DO NOT change this information in any way! If
you wish, you ARE allowed to leave out some of the information, such
as the owner's name. Please make sure that you include AT LEAST the
business name and website address. You can use any fonts, colors,
sizes that you want for the business information.
- You must create the logo, you cannot use symbols or download artwork from the Internet.
