Design brief

Organization name

Magic Mouse Design, LLC

Description of business

I work as a freelance instructional designer, consulting with companies that need e-learning or classroom training developed so that employees can do their jobs effectively/efficiently, or so that consumers/clients can use products/software they have purchased from a company.

Organization industry

Business & Consulting


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!

Further requirements

!!The iStock ZIP file is the ORIGINAL ARTWORK. !!The feet and teeth must be removed, and colors edited!! But some of you have been asking for the original EPS, so here it is!!

My target audience is prospective employers: managers and recruiters who are considering hiring me to design and develop training they need. I want this card to really stand out and make a great impression on me, my work, my personality, and my attention to aesthetic details.

Also, the "magic" in magic mouse means I create magic using my computer and a mouse!
