    not really diggin' your choice of color for the yellowgreen/neongreen color you have going on there. makes me think of glowsticks in a dark room. i think it would look nice with a shade of gray instead, but thats just me. otherwise its solid, but not jaw dropping.

    You don't exactly need the headers, but just my opinion

    Its not the right color yellow for that. FWIW, it looks almost green on my calibrated monitor as well. For sure, neon. You need a deeper yellow to match the Nikon yellow. Go to the Nikon website and use a color picker to grab the color and use that.

    Design is nice. I dont like the www: phone: stuff. People know that stuff, just list the website, the phone number and the email address.

    looking at it compared to the nikon yellow, i see what you mean. im not on a calibrated monitor, but looking at them side by side, i see how you can see the green in it.

    first post updated with new render.

    black? isn't that pretty expensive to print? or does it not matter with modern printing these days?

    I like the simple theme behind it, not so much the execution.

    cool, but my point was really take the color out of the aperture blades and put it entirely in your name.

    not feeling how your name is breaking into the aperture. Also don't see the point in coloring the "@" for your email, it really has no significance.

    That yellow is much better. Get rid of the yellow @ symbol.

    Also, try taking the phone number and right justifying it at the lower right of the card and making the font slightly larger so it stands out a bit more. So you have the www and email where they are and the phone number on the other side by itself and a little larger. I think that you want your number to be out there and not hidden between the www and email like it is now.
