The Quoted Business Card

I designed this business card using Adobe Illustrator to accompany my quotation themed resume.  This project took me about 2 hours to complete. The inspiration for the project came from the watercolor vector art I’d seen on various design websites a few months ago. I loved the way it gives a 2D flat look, but still provides enough dimension to be interesting.

Overall, I’m happy with the outcome of this project. I would like to improve my color choices for next time. Realistically, if this were sent out to be printed, the contrast of the green text boxes on the blue background would be very minimal and hard to read. . I would also consider changing the water colors to something a little more toned down and muted. I’d like to see more of a pastel color palate looking back over this design. I’m most pleased with the look and positioning of the quotation marks, and I’m looking forward to exploring more ways to combine writing with graphic design.
