I was blown away by the initial designs maloandjelce submitted to my contest - they were fresh, striking and professional - in fact they completely surpassed my expectations. She then worked tirelessly with me as we tried colour variations - she clearly wanted the results to be perfect and she really knows what she's doing. I am absolutely over the moon with the end result - I think it's amazing. I could not have asked for more.

Old Time Portraits
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We travel around the country, setting up our mobile portrait studio at major state fairs (and occasionally corporate events). We specialize in re-creating the past through portraits of our guests dressed like Cowboys and Saloon Girls from the Wild West, Gangsters and Flappers from the Roaring 20's, Soldiers and Southern Belles from the Civil War and Gentlemen and Ladies from the Victorian 1890's. Most costumes go over street clothes and photos are delivered to the guest within 5 minutes.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Looking for a new single sided business card design. My business specializes in "old time", but I would like the design to convey a more contemporary look, but still letting the viewer know about the "old time" aspect of the studio. There should be room for a person's name and title, address, phone, fax, email and website. Phone and email is the primary form of communication. For instance, my name is Scott Henry, title is Owner, address is 3342 Wooded Lane Baileys Harbor, WI 54202, phone is (920) 659-3297, fax is (360) 276-5430, email is email@example.com and website is http://www.mobileoldtimeportraits.com
I've used the clipart (attached in the next section) for business cards and logos in the past and would like for it to be incorporated again if at all possible.
Splashy color in the design is not necessary. My current card uses brown ink on parchment stock. I'm not against color, just don't want to take away too much from the "old time" nature of my business.
