We're looking for a really memorable business card for our company. We are a startup Business Intelligence / Data Visualization company looking to have people remember us when we hand them a card. We work with CFOs and CEOs of small and medium size companies.
Our target audience is the CEO/CFO of a small or medium sized business. This means that we have to be memorable without being trite. Our customers are serious business people but that does not mean that we can't be creative in our branding.
Update - Some designers have taken our shape challenge pretty far. We do still want it to basically be business card sized. People need to put it in their wallet.
Update- Info that should go on the card: Name, Title, Address, email address, phone #, fax #, twitter user name, http://www.brightmetrics.com.
Use your creativity. We've included 2 different styles of our logo. (I only had the one version of Illustrator file but change it if you want the other version in Illustrator). Feel free to use either one. Please use color and both sides. Elements of the design should be able to transfer to other mediums as well. We have not developed our web site yet but we should be able to incorporate elements of the card into our website when it is up and running.
Also, feel free to play with the shape of the card to a certain degree to make it more interesting if you like. Nothing too fancy. It should still look like a business card but if you want round some or all of the corners or something like that, it's ok with us.
In addition, please add the appropriate text and/or graphics to allow people to follow us on twitter @Brightmetrics.
We will want the final documents in Illustrator or Photoshop with layers as well as in PDF.
