Contest title


Photographer looking for unique and surprising business card designs!


Simple logo, requiring a fresh creative interpretation!

Background information

Description of the organization and its target audience

I'm a photographer marketing myself as a "Photojournalistic and experimental wedding and portrait photographer"



Existing website to reference

I'll be rebranding the website to a more "blog-style" site:

Visual style

Style/theme ideas for the stationery

Something clean, minimalist, that looks like it was "designed" and not just "purchased". Something that people would want to keep just because it looks so damn cool. Something that would win a design award!
I'm open to exceptionally creative themes. Vintage. Typewriter-fonts. Textured. Hipster.
Negative space (whitespace) is awesome.
Happy to vary the physical shape of the card too - circle, vertical, foldable, transparent.
Either black/white/grey, or a super-bright block colour.

What to avoid

I definitely don't want something "corporate", or "professional".  I DON'T want my card to say "I'm a small business owner who selected his card design from a generic business card website.."
