Yep, just a school project. I keep them with me though, might use them for 'business' purposes some day.
I'll do a photoshoot the evening we present the school assignment I'm talking about. Visitors pay, say, 2 euro's for a photo, and the money goes to charity (thinking about WWF, because it saves the things many of us photographers want to capture). What do you think, good plan?

Bjorn,

Have you considered using a photo of your smiling face on your business card?

Nice design though. It's the first time I see a photo on a business card. For anyone who need inspiration, go see the movie "American Psycho". :D

Cheers,
Tony

No, haven't considered that. For my next order of businesscards I'll just use a photo with my camera in front of my face...

I bet you made the O aperture-shaped, which would be extremely original :lol:

As long as it looks good :)

OK, after a loooong time, I managed to get a new design together, and I'd like to year what you guys think before I order a stack of these.

Didn't want a photo of my face on it this time, tried adding some of my favourite shots, but just one seemed to work better...

Feedback is much appreciated! :D

EDIT: My website is still under construction, the current one doesn't work...

I like the overall feel of the card. The coloured stripes remind me of a flag. I even checked to see if orange white and green in that order were taken with the only somewhat similar ones being India and Niger. Still the colour scheme, I assume Alpha Orange (if there is an official one) and green work nicely together.

On that note, I do wonder if having effectively four horizontal strips is a little too much. If a simpler three stripe version would have more impact, although balancing the bands might be difficult. I think I'd also wonder if it would be better if the transition from the grass to white was straight as currently it looks wobbly.

In other words, I have no idea :P

Yep, it's supposed to be a studio umbrella. Needed something photographic to incorporate into my logo, and I stuck with the umbrella since that seemed to work.

I share your concern about the flag-thing popo. It looked a little too much like a flag to me too! I'll see what I can do to change that! I also have a design where the edge of the photo is straight, but that looked a little too boring.
Victor, the old card scared me away! I was afraid to give it to people because of the angry face... :D

Oh, and Holland's a rainy country, so the umbrella makes sense as both a photographic tool as well as a thing that keeps you dry, I guess! :)

OK, made a couple of changes, here's a new version. Got rid of the flag-effect, added a flash-look to the umbrella so it's more photographic. Opinions are very welcome again!

Looking better Bjorn, but the Orange symbols clashe with the green. If you have those printed professionally you might lose detail in the orange, or it'll just look wrong. I'd personally add a stroke to the symbols, or create little boxes for them.

Other than that, looking good!
