Emphasis should be given to (1) Logo (2) Company Name (3) My Name. I am flexible with colors but would prefer to use colors that go well with the company logo. I like the use of Black, White & Gray, as long as the logo is placed on white or light gray. I am also interested in using certain colors as long as they go well with the colors of the logo. I would prefer the card layout to be horizontal
The logo must be prominent, maybe a size up to 25% of the width of the card (no more). There will be text in the back of the card, see 'what to include' section.
The logo will blend better if placed on a near white background, light gray maybe. The background must not be plain. Please use your creative ideas to design a pattern, curvy, rectangular, whatever. I have uploaded images to show some patterns I like, and in one case an image of a design I liked. It does not have to be exactly like it, it's just an idea.
I uploaded a file called Old Card.jpg - It will give you an idea about the size of the logo, and how it is placed over a light background. The text style is 'modern' not traditional (like Arial, TimesNewRoman). There is a pattern, triangular shape used to connect the blue background and the light gray background.
