Business Cards for every Profession!
When you are designing a new business card you need to take several things into consideration. The first thing that you need to consider is your profession. If you have a serious minded profession such as a legal profession or an accounting profession then perhaps your design should be understated yet elegant. Next you need to take into consideration your professional reputation. If you have a reputation as being a zany professional then your business card can be more adventurous than if you are normally considered to be a straight laced professional.
Color choice for business cards really depends on your preferences. The most elegant business card choices are white and cream; while playful business cards are typically variegated. When you are selecting your color palette make sure that your selection doesn't overpower your contact and professional information.
Make it Legal
It is generally a good idea for legal professionals to keep their business card design simple and elegant. The most popular choices for lawyers attorneys and other legal professionals are white backgrounds, black lettering, and basic borders. You can select a more elegant font style which will give your business card an added touch of class.
Count on It
Accountants are another set of professionals that may want to keep their business card designs simple and elegant, especially if they are a CPA. White and cream colored backgrounds are popular with this group of professionals, and black lettering seems to be the normal choice. If you want to personalize your business card you should consider adding a photograph of yourself.
Your Lab Coat is White, So Should Your Business Card
One way to design a great business card is to make it resemble your work uniform. Pharmacists are generally identifiable by their white lab coats. Use this association to design a business card that people will associate with your profession. Select a stark white background and black lettering with a minimal border (perhaps no border at all) or graphic.
Create a Business Card that will Impress Your Colleagues
If you are a professor, then you have a little more lea-way when it comes to business card designs. Your design will need to reflect the subject that you teach, as well as your style of teaching. You can personalize your business card by adding your photograph, by adding a graphic of something related to the subject that you teach, or by adding a photograph of the university where you work.
