Learn how to design a business card that is eye-catching and functional.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Nigel French. Welcome to Designing a Business Card. In this course, we're going to look at all aspects of designing a business card, what information to include, what size and format to make it, and how to get it printed. After we've looked at examples and talked about important design considerations, like typography, layout, and choice of color, there are two hands-on projects: the first, using InDesign to create a business card for a graphic design company; the second, using Illustrator to design a card for a coffee shop.
Let's get started.
- Examining how layout, typography, and other elements add to a design
- Incorporating imagery
- Choosing paper stock
- Using common business card sizes and formats
- Printing options
- Positioning logos and text
- Preparing a business card for print
