Photoshop Settings Used This design was fairly easy to create. I started by creating an art board that acted as my canvas for both the front and back of the business card. I chose a mint green color for the background and then added a gradient layer using the color setting.
I then moved to adding the text. I used the transform features to place the C and the B together. I also increased the tracking of the type to make it easier to read.
I like the look of oversized graphics and letters and am pretty attached to my initials. I also like scripty fonts. I chose a scripty font to use for my name and used the same font for the initials. I started with the oversized C in white and then added the B in a complementary color to the background. I made sure that the lines on the B corresponded with the C so that the two would look connects.
My name is bold and larger than the rest of the type. I chose to use the same scripty font in my name as I did in the initials. My personal information is in a simple sans serif font so that they can be read easily. My name and personal information repeat the navy blue color of the B in the initials.
I wanted the front and the back of the business card to compliment each other. For this reason, I used the same background gradient on the back and added the initials in the middle of the card.
Contrast: White on a colored background. Solid colors on a gradient background. Navy against white.
Repetition: Color of the B and the text. The two fonts are repeated.
Alignment: Strong right alignment line for name and personal information
Proximity: The curve of the C points to my name. The B is placed along the same curves of the C.
