Did you know that Indiana is a huge producer of bio-fuel?
Fall 2009, students chose states, or maybe they chose us, and from there we did a lot of research in order to create a state logo, variable license plates with a theme and a poster for our state’s State Fair. Green, or ecology minded design, is often a compelling theme for me, so I designed three eco-inspired plates for the state of Indiana. The encircled ‘e’ is the symbol that would appear on each eco-plate. It was interesting to communicate one message in three different ways, hopefully reaching three different audiences. (No logo is shown because it needs some tweaking.)
After much thought and valuable feedback, I have made final decisions on my business card. The image shown represents the front and back of my card.
I’ve decided to go with Greener Printer for a couple of reasons. First, they are the greenest printers I found during my research and that aligns with my beliefs. I appreciate the multiple layers of environmental choices they made as a company. For all they offer, I think the price is very fair. And my research brought to light that they now offer the printing of 3.5 x 1.5 inch business cards with a thicker card stock than their standard cards.
With enthusiasm, I thought I’d at least comp up a couple card designs in this size. I found that my design works amazing well with this size of card. Knowing that smaller cards can get jammed in people’s wallets or get lost in a sea of larger cards, I tried convincing myself to go with a standard size anyway. But redesign and try as I might, I could never achieve a design nearly as attractive on the standard sized cards. So, I give in and throw caution to the winds!
