whoop! Alt Summit is today! Hopefully I’ll be handing a lot of these little guys out today, so I thought I’d share them with you all, too. Happy Thursday!
I remember when I first bought my ticket to Alt Summit / New York. My first thought was “Omigosh, I can’t believe I’m actually going!” My second was, “Now I really have to make business cards.”
I knew I needed to make them, but nothing really motivated me like this event did. I mean, have you seen the stuff that comes out of Alt? All those business cards are top notch. As soon as that ticket was purchased, I was researching and scoping out the coolest cards I could find to help me figure out what I wanted to do.
My ideas for the cards ran the gamut from sewing bits of things on each one to laser-cutting acrylic sheets. I even got a quote for getting them letter pressed. It actually took quite a bit of identity searching and brand development to really figure out what I wanted. How could these cards help tell someone what I want them to know about my little site over here?
If there is one lesson to learn from this whole process it’s that well-done-simple is hard. After countless iterations, my final card design ended up being the most simple version I made, and I think it’s just what it should be; clean, simple, and modern with a hint of fun snuck in.
I got the Luxe business cards from Moo.com, which is just a fantastic company. Seriously, if you ever need to get business cards printed, go to Moo. I promise this post isn’t sponsored, I was just insanely impressed with their level of communication and customer service.
Once the cards arrived I added the pop of color around the edges. Stay tuned for the DIY on that little project!
