Golden Rules to Design Practical Business Cards Part Two
Select Size and Shape Properly
The size and orientation of the business card are crucial for the text size and amount. Plus, these are details that you can use to make a statement. Do you run a business that is ordinary and traditional, or rather unusual and non-conformist?
Business cards are usually rectangular, about the size of a credit card, and horizontal. Over the years, this format has proven itself, making it a safe choice. But if you want to stand out from your competitors, we recommend a square business card, a business card with rounded corners, or a vertical business card.
Structure The Information
When it comes to information, we also have some tips for you. Make sure you have your full contact information, website URL, and company address.
Your company name, telephone number, website, and email address, as well as profile links to social media, should not be missing in addition to your name and job title. With all of this information on your business card, customers will have no trouble contacting you in their preferred way.
During the design process, you should consider what the final layout will look like.
The information must be clearly structured and, as a whole, create a harmonious picture. "From a visual point of view, the ideal arrangement of design elements and information is this: logo design, name, additional information such as email address and telephone number," advises Tristan. "Of course, it is possible to adjust the size of the elements, move them or increase the space in between."
