R-KIVE Studios – Business Cards

Project: Design & Print – Business Cards
Tools: Adobe Illustrator

These are my current business cards.  I wanted to design something that showcased my design and printing capabilities.  I wanted a card that not only looks visually appealing, but felt great as well.

With this criteria in mind I opted for a heavy 16pt card stock that is coated with a silk finish, giving it a velvety smooth feel in the hand.  On the front I went with silver foiling on the logo. I wanted to keep this side simple and “clean”, so I only used the logo here.

On the back I decided to use spot uv to over the rich black to create an eye catching effect on the logo and the name/tag line as well as the dot grid.

The finished product is something that first catches a client or potential clients eye.  Upon receiving the card they notice the smooth silky texture of the card.

These cards have received great feedback from new and old clients. The business cards have been a great success!
