its business, its business time

At the continued urging of my friend Eileen, I finally sat down and knocked out some business cards today. I had to design my own. As an recovering graphic designer, I couldn't in good conscience order a box of ready-made free cards. I'd have to do it myself. I don't have Adobe CS, so I had to make do with the editing tools on the printing company's website. This was annoying, but not a huge problem, since I wanted to food photography to take center stage. Anyway, here's what I came up with, tell me what you think! 
*I realize the alignment is all screwy, they will definitely be fine-tuned later on, right now I'm focused on the design/layout.)

1. This is definitely what the back will be. In case you haven't guessed, this is one of my favorite photos.

2. One of the earlier drafts of the front of the card. This was actually a mistake, and I hate it; but I'm not hating the direction its going...

3. I like grids.

4. This is the front runner so far, for me anyway.

What do you think? Also, we'll need some sort of tagline. Something that says what we are. I'm not too crazy about "Food bloggers", but I do need to get that point across somehow. Help!


  1. I like #3 the best too. I was brainstorming for kind of a cheeky tagline and came up with,
    "Documentors of Fine Foods."
    "We Cook. The Food Speaks."
    "Experimental Foodies."
    "Cooking and Baking in the Digital Age."

    I don't know I'm not very good at that kind of thing. But I love the cards! You'll have to send me one when they are finished :)

  2. thanks, Nicole! All great ideas. I was also trying to come up with cute titles for Sanne and I. Something that says that she is the baker and I am the cook... run with that!

  3. I like 1 and 3. 1 because I love the photo, super simple and visually appealing, but 3 because you get to see so many different foods! 3 is very appealing too! Probably not much help. Sorry...

  4. #2 is kind of hard to read since the words are ontop of a picture
    #3 I like all of the food pics
    #4 I like the food pics and its more organized than #3 but it still needs something...
    and i love the back of the car obviously
