I just completed holding a contest for a logo for a new fundraising consulting firm (probably many of you entered that contest. Thank you. Great entries). Now I am looking for business card, letterhead, and envelope design. I also need a "template" that can be used for the front, back, and spine of a manual (e.g. manual would be in a 3-ring binder).
Building Foundations for Fundraising Success
Desired Color Scheme:
Something that conveys "Professional", instills confidence, something that "pops".
Accepted File Formats:
Standard Web Formats (.jpg, .gif or .png); Vector Formats (.eps, .pdf or .ai)
The company is "Cornerstone Fundraising Solutions". I am looking for designs for business cards, letterhead, and envelopes. The business cards should be designed in such a way that I can easily interchange information down the road as I hire new staff (e.g. change name, address, phone number, etc.). The "basics" such as company name, web site name, and logo, will of course remain the same. Please note, that at the moment, the web site name and email address that I intend to use is somewhat long so placement on business cards and letterhead needs to look good.
I am interested in a double-sided business card. My thought is that the back of the card would just have the logo and the tag line ("Building Foundations for Fundraising Success").
The letterhead should have plenty of white space where text can go. In other words, nothing too dark and large at the top or bottom of the page that would end up eliminating 1/2 the page for an actual letter. In the logo, however, you will see a "shadow"...you might incorporate that idea into the center of the page, but this is only a suggestion and is NOT required.
The "template" will be something that I can use down the road as I create different manuals or other printed materials. Currently, I have the following items in the process of being produced: 1) Consultant Resource Manual, 2) Consultant Opportunity Guide, 3) Event Handbook. What I would like is for you to take item #1 (Consultant Resource Manual) and create a "template" that I can then edit myself and simply change the title (e.g. to "Consultant Opportunity Guide"). The idea is that I will be creating a brand where all of the materials have the same "look and feel." So, to start with please provide a "template" for the "Consultant Resource Manual" and provide what would be a 1) front cover, 2) spine, and 3) back cover. These pages will then be printed and slipped into the front, back, and spine of a 3-ring binder (or similar media case). One more thought: Since I will not be printing large quantity of the pages from the template, I will be printing them "in house". Therefore, the template design should use color, but not exessively so.Â Please use a "white" background (I don't want to be buying ink for my printer every week.)Â For now, assume the front and back covers are 8.5"x11" and the spine is 1" thick. IÂ hope all of that makes sense.
