Bilingual Artist Business Cards

Client: Miguel A. Chávez

Project Overview

When the weather is warm and sunny, artist Miguel A. Chávez enjoys painting landscapes and city scenes outside in the open air. He wanted to be ready for curious onlookers this summer season with a stack of freshly updated business cards, so his new fans can always find him and his gorgeous artwork. We decided on a double-sided design, which would allow us to display two of his paintings and share his information in both English and Spanish.

Process Summary

  • Discussed with client what he wanted to achieve with his new business cards
  • Brainstormed layout ideas; sent client three concepts to choose from
  • Improved upon selected concept; added client’s information and images

Technologies Used:

  • Adobe Illustrator
