This week on Binky’s Blog, Binky explains the importance of Business Cards while giving advice on deciding a design for those who don’t yet have business cards and are in need of inspiration.
“People are always saying that first impressions matter. And it’s true. But a first impression is not just walking into the audition room or interview, it’s not just the hand shake or CV and head shot, part of first impressions are business cards. I just printed a new batch of business cards this week and feel compelled to share what I know of their importance, and how one might want to design them, to anyone without a business card. Like I’ve said in the past, I’m not a graphic artist, I had these done by someone I know, but being an artist, I can help you get inspired. Because let’s face it, what are you going to put on it, what colours are you going to use, what font. It’s all important because this is what people will look at and it has to convey who you are, what you do and make them want to contact you. It’s how they’ll remember that conversation that occurred on the street when they met you.”
