Business Card Designs - Part II

Here is more from the thread I started for people volunteering their shops for me to make sample business cards out of.

The Radical Thread Co. is the new name of my mom's business/shop. She's going to get juried to get into a very big gallery in our state (full of grants and other opportunities), so she needed me to make her some business cards, for some essential shop branding. I started off with a nice fabric texture, to help portray the fact that she's a textile artist. I used some images of her appliqu├ęs directly from her etsy shop, for some tiny samples of what she does. I used trees because they give off the the impression of "green", which is a big part of her shop, as she upcycles her fabrics and recycles her packaging.


LittleLovables volunteered herself in my thread, which was very excited, because of love her little felt deer! Her shop is bright and girly, so I settled on a rather simple, pink and white polka dot background. Two of her felt deer were arranged to create a sort of frame around her shop name. "Little" was made with a simple, petite, almost childish font and "lovables" with a curvy, sweet, sort of romantic font. The purpose of this was to visually represent exactly what the words mean.

More designs to come, once approved by my latest clients!

I like the Little Lovables card - you've chosen one of my favorite combinations of font styles. The interplay between scripts and sans serif fonts is always sublime.
