My New Business Cards (Or Why I Should Have Finished Art School)

Well, here it is! It only took me two days to mess around and come up with a new business card but that doesn't include the few days it took me to design the logo. Now, I did go to art school for design but I wanted to be an illustrator so I was really turned off of the idea of design. I love composition but I struggle with graphic design. After the past two days, I think a design degree would have been a very good degree to have! I am very happy with the result but I don't have the confidence that I have with, say, watercolors. Give me a pencil, pens and watercolors and I can go confidently in the direction of my dreams. Give me Photoshop and I trip myself up. I suppose that everyone has a learning curve on something but I find it frustrating when I can't create something on demand. Regardless! I am ecstatic with the finished card and can't wait to see it in hand. I decided to go with a two-sided card because I had so many websites to include and I just liked the look better. Now I can move on to redesign all my other graphics. At the rate it took me to finish the card, I should have it all done by Christmas! :o)

Don't feel bad. I'm terrible at graphic design, too. Put a paintbrush in my hands or put me in front of some beads or fabric and it's a different story :) I wonder of those graphic arts people struggle with other forms of art. Hmmmm......

I'm sure graphic artists struggle with other art forms! My biggest problem is I pick and pick and pick, but I am ecstatic with the finished product, now I'm anxiously awaiting their arrival! Thank You, Thank You Poetic Shutterbug, I love it too!
