Content details


I want a U.S. business card that is different, fun, creative, and gets your attention, yet is still professional and polished.

A coordinating note card (blank inside) is also needed, A6 US: horizontal or vertical orientation (6.25" x 9" before folding, folds to 4.5" x 6.25").

I prefer that the mouse graphic gets used, but am open to other ideas. I also prefer that some or all of the mouse colors are used (or something in a similar palette: Green = 92d050, Red = e50043, Blue = 004a80, Yellow = fff000, Gold = f38e00). I am open to a vertical or horizontal layout, and envision rounded, die-cut corners. Full-bleed is OK, as is double-sided, if the treatment is both attractive and functional :)

Keywords that describe me/my brand/my work: creative, fun, inspired, detailed, colorful, professional, knowledgeable, experienced, organized, on-time, excellence, style, consistent, thorough, responsible, dedicated, reliable, Integrity, continuity, clarity, accuracy, technical

Information that must be included on the business card:

Magic Mouse Design, LLC
Madison Sterling-Zalk, M.Ed.
Instructional Designer

Information in order of visual importance on business card =
1. Company name
2. My name/title
3. Contact info

The note card needs to coordinate with the business card, and is blank on the inside. This would be an all-purpose card, for mailing notes to past, current, or prospective clients.

If you decide to try a colored background, I would prefer that the circles on the mouse remain white.

PLEASE try something else that is different from the colored bars theme? Thank you!
