Contest Brief

Super easy project-- I'm building a holistic coaching practice (helping people to realize their dreams) and I'm giving away free intro sessions and want to have business cards to hand out as a way to spread the word-->help more people!

Side 1 of the card will have one of three designs (described below)
Side 2 of the card will have some basic text and maybe a small icon (or photo of me?)

Side 1: Design requests: for each of the 3 designs below have the top word (in all caps) take up the majority of the card, with the second line smaller and symmetrical with the above line... I'm not sure if this would be best on a solid color or with some kind of imagery... that's where your creativity comes in :) ~ though I'm attaching a photo I took of a card that I like that inspired this idea (biz card sample).

Design 1:
DISCOVER
your heart's deepest calling

Design 2:
TRANSFORM
limiting patterns and beliefs

Design 3:
MANIFEST
your highest potential

Side 2: Will have the following text with some kind of matching color scheme to Side 1 and possible a matching image or my headshot (see 3 options attached):

"With this card you or someone you know can have a FREE intro coaching call to get support in overcoming blocks and actualizing your greatest potential."

To schedule, contact:

I'd like to print them on rounded rectangular cards, you can see the specs in the attached template 3.5x2_diecut_business_card___rounded_corners_189+%281%[url removed, login to view]

    Please post all future submissions on a white background with the correct dimensions and symmetrical orientation so that I can look at them side by side printed and make an accurate decision. thanks!

    The top designs are so good, it's hard to pick!! Here are some preferences that are emerging for me as I try to choose:

    1) I really like the rounded headshot with an asymetrical border like you see in 30, 34, 42 and 45-48
    2) Less is more for the lotus image (I like the one in 27, 40 and 41 the best I think)
    3) I like the two-tone on Side 2 with contact info in "magenta" on the bottom
    4) I like the font best on green parts of 41 and the contact info on 34
    5) I like the email and phone icons you you see on 41
    6) while 34 matches my flier perfectly, it seems more feminine, and I'd like something that appeals to men and women

    I aim to make my choice sometime today or tomorrow.

    thanks for all of the submissions!

    I love the way that the text is laid out on Side 2 of #18 w/ the icons for email/phone... i also like the lotus on Side 1 of #18 but not the mis-matched image on Side 2 ~ the best colors are in #9

    Hello sir,
    Let me know your feedback on #19, this is a plain background and little changes on the design. Please let me know your valuable feedback. Thanks.

    I definitely like seeing the images with the curved corners as I requested ~ and gave #4 3 stars because it has all of the information I requested on the correct side.

    In terms of a lotus-like image, I like something like what you see at http://www.blossominglotusacupuncture.com/resources/lotus.jpg that is silhouetted so that it is more like the butterflies in #13 or like the one on my flier.

      Ok, I made the lotus from scratch on #16. Don't know if you like it or not. If you prefer the example image you've provided over my pink version then I'll try to create it later as well. Will look for your feedback later tonight (U.S. time), or tomorrow. Thanks for all the positive feedback. If it weren't for your help we wouldn't be able to achieve our goal.

    I have submitted my entry @ #13 but for some technical reason it is not showing in the original colors...Don't know why? By the way if possible I can send you those original images to your email? Thanks

      I'm trying to submit entry with .PSD format. Let see it works or not!

    I noticed when I did all caps, it didn't give me the "script" look, like example #7 (that's why I did #7 like I did).
    Also, I didn't have a pic of a lotus, so I made one from scratch. Hope it's up to your standards.

      I forgot to add... look at the difference between the backgrounds on #1 and #2, do you like either of those?

    Please view and rate #1 & #2. On both submissions, I've attached the backside of the card in the lower right. Although you can't see all the wording d/t the pic's shrinkage, it's there.
    Thank you,
    Kathie

      Thank you for your submission! I like the all caps for DISCOVER etc. but am not sure about that font -- id prefer no sarif (?) more elegant/feminine and on a rounded shape card (see attached template) -- I dont see the contact info, are you saying you would add that?

      Ok, I'll change the font and see what you like best. The contact info is on there, but because I "squished" the backside example onto the front, it got squished out of the pic. I'll give you an example of the backside by itself. I can't thank you enough for the wonderful way you express what you're looking for. It truly helps. :)

    As you can tell the lotus is an important symbol for me, so putting some kind of watermark-type lotus (2d or 3d) on the card like the labrynth on the sample biz card could be cool
