Business Card Design by yours truly

In lieu of my preparations for entering the professional world and scrambling to secure a job out of college, I’ve designed a few variations of business cards.

So, I know this is a little off the topic of crisis communication which my blog is intended to convey, but it’s still relevant to the industry and professional world. As I’ve stated in previous posts, I am on the brink of graduating. I find myself attending more professional/career mixers and networking with added purpose.

I didn’t originally think business cards were necessary as a student in this day and age, but to avoid the hassle of exchanging numbers with people I meet and leave a more memorable presence with potential employers, I decided to try it out.

I encourage those of you who follow my blog to engage in giving feedback regarding which design you find most visually appealing and memorable. Keep in mind I am pursuing a career in public relations and/or creative marketing.

My intention with this card is to display my creativity and design abilities, while maintaining a sense of professionalism. Some of these drafts are more modest than others in terms of design. I want to get noticed but remain relatively subtle.

Let me know which one you like by choosing your favorite in the poll below. Any additional comment feedback would be greatly appreciated!
