I never thought I’d actually make my very own business card until… the Global Malaysia BusinessForum’s welcoming dinner.
There was this invisible mental block in my head which thought that ‘I didn’t need a business card‘, but after the welcoming dinner and awkwardly exchanging phone numbers and writting down my blog domain on pieces of papers, or huge A4 papers, I decided, there was a need for such a card. After all, I was at a business forum, and the whole idea was to make new connections, and increase networking, and that wouldn’t happen if you handed someone a huge A4 size plain paper, which has some tiny writting of my contact number and domain. It wasn’t practical after all, and I’m guessing most people will just throw it away when they clear their bags.
So, I decided that I needed a business card. Since sending my business card design to the shop would take time and it might not be ready within 24 hours, I decided to print out my very own business card using my printer. Amazingly, it turned out rather nice and neat.
The next day, Norman said he could get my business card ready in a few hours, and so, I paid him the money, and on the 12th of November 2009, I received my very first official printed by a shop, business card.
So, what do you guys think of the design?
I know, it looks crowded, but the whole idea was to highlight my blog’s domain, and I think I successfully did that.
