    Not bad, and trans gifs are always a good way to show your hard work.

    Looks quite busy for a business card though, are you planning to use this as one side of a double sided card or just this?
    Time to start cycling through old sigs.

    Way too dark and busy. Also it has nothing to do with graphics unless of course you're watching the GIF. It looks like a nice photo to the untrained eye which gives the image of a photography business.

    It's not for design, i just with stuck upscale design from my last project.
    It is infact for photography/photoshop I currently only do work in nightclubs and bars ect
    capturing crowds and atmospheres, and creating event posters.

    I'm trying to expand into more types of work, music artwork, creating portfolios for individuals ect ect.

    regarding it being too dark, i was thinking that myself. im currently adding a sort of aura of light from the
    main street in the background

    the reverse is going to be a very transparent version of the orignal photo, with my details overlayed

    It helps if you have a dad who is one of the founders to a multi million pound design franchise, you pick up a few contacts if you know what i mean.

    just google kallkwik


    edit: just notice someone said it was too busy

    the whole point of the image is to show that even in the busiest of places you can find somewhere to be alone

    Tbh, i dont like it at all.
    all there is, is text and some effects.

    and the background chosen has nothing to do with designs.
    that chick doesnt match the city background either.

    You should put the thing in your sig on a white card with a nice design and maybe a quote or something idk. Keep it simple. Atleast keep the background solid.

    I actually had that same idea but not on a blue background.

    Also realize that when you actually print these if you do, you might lose some quality in the image which won't really look good for your image.

    I work in a print factory, this will come out fine. the finished product will have a gloss over the top

    plus my orignal psd is 1600x1200px 300ppi

    800x600px 72ppi

    Whatevers dude it's just not a good business card technique. Black would work but only with some other contrasting colors in there to distract your eyes from the black background. This whole thing is black and just really depressing. The original picture was alright but the final is just soo dark its hard to see anything especially on the smaller image you posted. It's just not professional and if you can't/ don't want to listen to others advice then why do you post it in a section thats sole purpose is to give advice on what to change.

    I can take advice i have the psd open as we speak.
    im merely trying to explain, i made it that dark for a reason and its not because i dont know how to get information to a user.
