    What does everyone think about this business card design?

    I know it doesn't say much on it.. but does it need to? It would basically be handed out to people who I've already talked to.. not a card to leave somewhere to advertise.

    I like it and it serves its purpose :dunno:

    If you could make sure the pattern on the backgrounds show up in print then it's all good imo.

    i'd leave it white on the back ... what are you going to do if you want to write a note on your card?

    I like the blue against the background and I like the green against the background but I dont like the transition.

    Otherwise, I like it

    you have dark grey, white, blue and green. Rule of thirds is not just for pictures. It is also a design rule, Odd numbers keep things off balance and off balance is interesting. I wonder what all green look like for the pinstripe.

    but it is your card, if you like it, that is what matters. I do like, like I said

    just a quick chop, what if you moved the text a tiny bit, might look a little nicer.

    I think there should be some mention of what DC Lifestyle is. Is it an events company, party promoter, photography service, urban lofts in washington DC?

    Yes, you say it's mainly for people you've already spoken to, but what about when those people find that card in their pocket a few days later and are like, "why do i have this card? What is DC Lifestyles??"

    i'm not a fan. Looks old school, but not the cool kind of old school.
