For my business card I took inspiration from minimal graphic design movements to make my design bold and clean. When initially designing the logo I went for something simple, rather than just putting my initials which has been very played out in personal business cards. I felt writing my own name in my handwriting gives a very personal feel to the card.
Logo’s such as Apple, Nike and Google’s really stood out to me as they’re eye catching and simple. I felt subtlety is key when designing the logo, by adding a video game controller to the bottom of my name it helped convey the ‘game’ aspect to my card.
Here’s a Pinterest board of cards and logos that I was inspired by
My initial sketches were of my name condensed into my initials however I eventually brainstormed and stuck to a design encorperating my name and half a game controller.
Here are the final designs for the card and logo and a few mock up designs
