I think the very bottom one is my favorite, it's absolutely beautiful!
I like all of them, am really digging your logo and i like the design red line going around the card it fits the illustration very well. And the front works, its simple and i think thats a good thing because the background is so busy.The one thing i would play around with is the color of the font some letters are getting lost because they are white and the images have a lot of white in them. maybe red for the text or a shade of grey could help pull the text a bit forward so it is easier to read ?
I agree with Ma Mansur, the type is getting lost in the black and white ones at the top. I love the illustrations as always, but the third one down is my favorite I really like the negative space. But it would be more legible red(same color as the border)type as Mansur suggests, I would also change the logo to be the same red as its also being lost. The second from the bottom is the most legible with the white type but if you stick with that I would change the logo to the border color it's getting lost on the parchment colored background.Lastly the kerning on the type seems a little off especially the double 'OO's in Cooper.
I like the last font best- but maybe keep it a bit more stream line by putting all the text together at the top instead of around all the sides? All the text makes it a bit busy and detracts from the wonderful illustration. I love the red line as well- perhaps fading the artwork digitally that extends past the border?
I like all of them, but the second to last is the best. But I would love it more as a postcard. Your second image feels more like a business card, BUUUUUTTT, change the color of the font to a darker one I can barely read it.
Nevermind, the first example is best for business card. I kind of think that the fonts look too similar to tell the difference.
You are all so amazing, and so fast with your responses! Mansur- Excellent point! I tried playing with different colors but nothing worked so I thought maybe it would be better if I just removed that distracting info from the front since most of it is on the back... what do you think? I posted new images if you want to see the new version.Rory- KERNING is my enemy. ha ha ha Thank you so much for checking that, yes it's super wonky! I have such an uncertain eye for the subtleties of type, I REALLY need another set of eyes to catch that stuff.Yolanda- Yes! I thought it looked a bit busy too, and so I thought I'd just take the info off the front. I posted the revised images, let me know if it looks more streamlined now!Roxy- I like the "hunt" designs best right now too, and I agree, the "specter" might make a better postcard. Ahhh, the type color is giving so much trouble!
Oh, and thanks Brigitte!
I love the second and third one but i do like them all. I think that if you can't decide just have all diferent ones nothing wrong with that :)however if you are to use the second one try the font with an outline for example if it's white do a black outline and where the blak parts are the white will stand out and where there's white background the black outline will show the font that way it'll be more readable. just an idea...
jess! stop making such freakin cool business cards.
