Edited: Finally, I got an inspiration that why must a card be printed? So I laser cut it, which looks good!
However, the readability is a problem. Eventually, my professor told me that I can make a combination of printing and laser cutting, which is a great idea.
I really like this card, I think I will use the card for a long long time.
I had several business cards.
The left one, I was a young product designer. I want to be different, want others to feel that I was trained to be an artist, want to convey that I am a minimalist.
The right one, I just want to be an ordinary person, to assure others that they can trust me that I won’t do something stupid.
Yup, when you grow up, instead of to show that you are cool, you need to prove you are worthwhile to do business with.
So what do I want to show them now?
I AM RICH!
Sadly, I cannot use this card, because I’m neither rich nor a boss.
So, I have to make a new one, which is appropriate for a mediocre artist.
What I really want to show.
- I have my esthetic taste.
- I want people to remember my sign.
- BIG LOGO!
- I am oriental, which has a different style with others.
- Black and white.
- Chinese characters.
This is what I finally get:
Black and white, pure, retro.
The font is Fang Zheng Qing Ke Ben Yue Song, which is from Qing Dynasty block-printed edition. The English font comes up with the Chinese font package.
When I was trying to fit it to the Fibonacci pattern, I just didn’t feel right.
Then I kept tweaking it until I feel comfortable.
