Business cards are awesome. It’s like bringing along the identity of your brand wherever you are. Therefore, it’s useful to have a business card when you meet people of the same clique.
Back then when I started to meet bloggers or PR personnel, the phrase “Sorry, I don’t have one” was always uttered when I receive a business card.
That feeling of not being able to give my own business card… sucks. Not awesome at all.
So, with much determination, I decided to come up with some card designs that would match kenwooi.com’s brand. It has to consist of the orange element!
As a result, this was my first ‘experiment’ I came up with…
I thought it was super cool. So orange, it has got to be the best design… ever! But when I asked for opinions, some said it’s too orange.
Some even said it’s a noob design. What?!
“Giving up” wasn’t in my dictionary, so I re-designed it to make it less orange, and less noob as well…
Once again, I thought it was brilliant masterpiece. It must a genius’ creativity at its best, but one of the feedback I got was… “Ken, please stop hurting my eyes”.
Oh well, despite feeling slightly dejected, I know designing ain’t my forte. That’s when I decided to engage Occam Studios to be creative for me!
Occam Studios’ core business is helping businesses market their brand through their skills in multimedia design – ranging from Graphic, Photography and Web. This time around, they’re gonna design a business card for kenwooi.com!
After a few discussions and a couple of drafts, we finally agreed on the design.
Then finally… I CAN HAZ BUSINESS CARD! :D
I must say, I wouldn’t have produced such a design on my own. According to Aaron (the boss), the orange speech bubbles represent the ‘fun’ topics I write on my orange blog. What a concept!
Ever since I got my business cards, I no longer feel awkward during a card exchange session. Some even commented that they think the card is nicely done. ;)
Now I can proudly say that kenwooi.com has an awesome business card. Do you want a piece?
Just ask if you see me! :D
