I would like artwork for a business card. This design will be etched on metal plates, and the manufacturing company has specific artwork guidelines that must be met.
I'd like to have metal business cards made by this company:
To see some examples of their cards, check out this page:
For their layout and design guidelines, see these pages:
These business cards will be used to promote my site, productlaunchsupport.com . . .
My initial idea for a design would be to have an etching of a space shuttle launch, with my name/contact information next to the etching.
However, I am open to other ideas -- anything that will visually promote the idea of a "launch" (a product launch is a marketing event that results in a very high volume of sales in a very short period of time).
Note that because of the process being used, these business cards can have cutouts (shapes, letters, etc. defined by an absence of metal) -- these would make the card more memorable.
As an example, look at this card:
So one idea I had was for the space shuttle to be inside a cutout area . . . but I'm not sure how you'd do this and also evoke the mental image of it "launching" . . .
The design must have a "launch" theme -- it must evoke images of something "lifting off" or "exploding upward". For my services I offer technical support for product launches -- this needs to be implied from the graphic design.
If your design is chosen (wins the contest), you must be able to supply the files required by the manufacturing company. See this URL for details:
The graphics design will need to allow room for my name, email address, web URL, and phone number.
I'd really like the design to include a cutout if you can find a way to make it work . . .
I'm pretty open to about anything as long as it's professional and in good taste. Have some fun with this, but don't be too outlandish!
