Famished.org business card

glutton's picture

Here's my (as yet unprinted) business card -- the curvy typeface is one of my own devising (Pinnacle) and the text face is Arial.

I'm very content with the general layout, logos, etc. However, I'm not so sure about the placement of the phone number and other info like that.

I was also thinking maybe of switching from Arial to Frutiger.

A more pressing issue is that your company name reads as "Famishea."

The colors are good, but I would make the knife and fork...more realistic. Also, the title Supreme Overlord doesn't fit in with the food/famished/glutton theme.

Maybe let us in on the origin of famished/glutton. And what does the word mean to a potential client?

depending on that answer, you could come up with slogans...A steady diet of great design...getting it done before dinnertime...

Or you could leave it as is and tell us to stick a fork in it.

Just an opinion.

I need some food.

Marc is right.
BJ: what about "Chief Glutton"?

OK, OK.

Hmmm... I think I like Arial better than Frutiger.

How about "Burrito Supreme?" :-)

I won't comment on Arial except to say at least
try Helvetica. I don't want to prompt David
Thometz--the down-trodden font sympathizer
that he is--to post a defense of Arial.)

Good luck with it.

Hah! No chance. Blast away against Arial. :D

i was just curious to know why you left an address off the card. an argument i read from a listserv gave a compelling reason for having one - what if the client needs to mail a cheque your way, where are they going to mail it to?

btw, Frutiger all the way (i doubt you'll ever see arial in an airport)

Consider doing the web, email, and phone in one line
across the card below the orange and the address in a
second line (assuming it's long enough). You might
need to shrink the orange area vertically to make it work.

Oh God... Please use frutiger. Arial makes me cry.

As for the design otherwise, I like it alot, it looks sort of japaneese in some strange way:)
