Basically, experienced technology entrepreneurs, and experienced entrepreneurs new to technology, and completely new entrepreneurs; primarily marketing and biz dev people, CTO's, VP of product development, visionaries. Particularly people who might be considered: conscious, balance-seeking, aware, mindful, cutting edge, web 2.0, business 2.0, long tail, wisdom of crowds, pragmatic, ethical, prefer quality over quantity, human factors, care of user experience, ease of use, intuition.
Targeting both new and existing markets: new markets and products and services and ideas; existing markets with a new approach to the existing.
Primarily I need business cards with impact that could be described as "simple elegance", the same as my work products are described. I would like a look and feel that I like enough to stick with for a while, and perhaps get more designed, such as a web site design, which I will need next.
Here is what I want to be communicated in the design:
We are a small/boutique web-technology/RubyOnRails consulting firm, experienced, innovative, cutting edge ideas, out of the box thinking and problem solving, disciplined and calculating, taking a holistic view, balance of technological savvy with human sensitivity, classic sensibilities and values yet with a non-traditional and progressive approach, edgy and opinionated yet grounded and pragmatic, zen-like calm and aesthetic, customized services, continuous improvement, earthy.
I dislike right angles and straight lines; I want to see curves, rounded corners, interesting shapes, and/or things like that. I like colors that are of mixed and of different saturations, such as high saturation, low saturation, or earth tones.
