What makes a good business card/identity design? “It should be memorable and eye-catching and best represent the function and personality of the person presenting it. You should be able to take pleasure in it and use it to display your individuality. While it is true that excessive use of printing techniques cannot replace a simple, practical design printed in black, incorporating bold colours such as fluorescent yellow on the edge of the card can increase the chances of it standing out among others.”
