Business Card Design
Four Design Principles Contrast Repetition Alignment Proximity
CONTRAST Contrast is one of the most effective ways to add visual interest to your business card. are different Contrast is created when two elements are different. It also helps organize your information. For contrast to be effective the elements should be very different.
Repetition Repetition is repeating some aspect of your design throughout the entire piece. The purpose of repetition is to unify and add visual interest. Avoid repeating the element too much.
Alignment Nothing should be placed on the card or letterhead arbitrarily. Every element should have a visual connection with one another. Alignment helps unify and organize. Pay attention to where you place items.
Proximity When items are in close proximity to each other they become one visual unit. Items related to each other should be grouped together. If the information is organized it is more likely to be read and remembered.
Try this~ Squint your eyes and count the number of visual elements on the card by counting the number of times that your eyes stop. If there are more than four separate elements try and group some together.
