Contest $40 Business Card Design - Logo Provided - $5 for 2nd place

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by blanktorp, May 3, 2014.

    Hello everyone,

    Looking for a sleek, cool, and professional looking business card design.
    The theme here is DARK. The business card need to have 2 sides.
    Also important: Please do NOT save the file with the company name in it. I do NOT want this to show up in the search engines with the company name.

    The company name and logo is provided and attached here.
    What I would like:

    FRONT
    - Name (use for just the example: Bill Gates)
    - Title (use: Co-Founder)
    - Phone Number (use format 555.555.5555)
    - Email Address ()
    - Website (www.website.com)
    SEMrush
    BACK
    - Please put the LOGO just on the back side (NOT the front)
    - Please put the SLOGAN line also on the back - it is attached in file here as well

    Other info:
    Once again, the whole motif and theme here should be DARK DARK overall. But of course mix colors to make sure there is enough contrast to read things. The colors that are included in our company color template are:

    • Yellow/orange: #FDB905

    • Gray: #DEDEDE

    • Black: #000000

    • White: #FFFFFF

    • You can also use variations of these colors, especially variations of black & gray if you need to.
    The font used in the logo if you also want to use it is http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/play

    We are also using this font in the company http://www.dafont.com/it/weblysleek-ui.font

    But you can decide what font looks best or if you want to use a different font.

    I will pay with PayPal. I only need files from the first place big winner, I don't need files from the 2nd place winner but I am awarding a small prize for the effort.

    I will continue the contest until I see a winning design that I like. I will be providing feedback often.

    THANK YOU!

    Thank you to all the submissions and participants so far. There is nothing yet that I really love so will continue the contest. Some comments below. Please remember I want the style to be all DARK (some of you gave me white cards) and also sleek, modern, with edges and corners and square shape style similar to what reflects the logo style. Thanks.

    @Gladiator_28: That doesn't look professional or clean or sleek. Also not dark. Not my style. Thanks for your time.

    @eldiablo23: Thank you as well for the participation but you're style doesn't fit what I'm looking for and I like some of the other designs better already.

    @Sobbi: You did not provide a DARK design as I had asked for. This is the opposite of what' I'm looking for with colors. Also too much going on here, with the squiggly random lines image and discoloration behind my logo. But thanks.

    @rxzor: Thank you for both submissions. Yours are definitely some of the better ones. I like your second one much more, with the yellow both on top and bottom. It has a classy look. I wish it had some more character or strength to it somehow, but I'm not sure on what would make that happen. I also am not sure that I love the shape of that line where it steps-up like that. I'm more of a fan of clear edges with parallel or perpendicular design elements.

    @onlyfights: Thanks for the participation, I appreciate the creativity with using the logo background for the front info sections as well, but it all just doesn't fit together well and the sizing of everything is too large and just not sleek and modern looking overall. I like some of the others more.

    @Henry Saldana: Thanks as well, definitely creative with the background, but there is just way too much going on for me here. Much too busy of a design since I'm looking for something sleek and modern and flat-design edgy looking. I like some of the others more.

    @biili: Definitely one of the better designs but just too much going on and too busy with all the different shapes, their directionality, and the disproportionate sizing of the text vs. images etc. For instance I don't like that the slogan on back is larger than the logo. Also I prefer straight-edge shapes and elements that are modern and either parallel or perpendicular. Thanks for your time.

    @kainraziall: Thanks for participating, yours are definitely some of the better designs here. I like your second submission much more than the first. The first has too many shapes and colors. The second is great with the level of elements and colors and also that everything is very straight-edge and clean looking. I like the back, I'm not sure yet about the front. I also wish the sizing of elements was similar; now you have a thinner line of yellow on the back and a much thicker in the front. Maybe there is a way to make things more consistent and uniform.
