Here is my final choice for my business cards. I like these 2 designs because the front and back connect well, not only are the colours really great the slanted design works well, and I like the simplicity this contains. This will make my business card successful for its purpose, and it works with my CV, cover letter and self promotional item.

Some more back designs for my business cards. It’s going to be a difficult choice in the end.

Some back designs for my business cards. As you can see I have included some contact information (website domain is to be added as well), and the title “Nicholas Leonida Design”. Also, I am using my colour scheme ALWAYS!

Some more front designs for my business cards. I am liking the way my colour scheme colours link between them. They combine really well.

Here are some designs of the front design of my business card. I am playing with different ways of using my colour scheme.

Business Card Design

I have come up with various business card ideas for my self promotional bundle. All business card design have a few things in common.

1) The colour scheme on all designs remains the same. (Yellow, Gray, Black)

2) Logo is on all designs.

3) All details must be on the back of the designed card.

4) To have Nicholas Leonida Design written.

Then by using the pathfinder tool on illustrator I made it one shape, making the white transparent. I like the outcome of my logo, I think it looks amazing. Last but not least, I added my full name underneath my logo.

So as you an see above I made the circle smaller and I added a black line on top of the L to give the viewer an idea of what 2 letters are contained in the circle. I really like the slanted line, it gives the logo more detail and makes it look nicer than before.

After placing my initials in the circle, I centred the letters and overlapped the L over the N where their vertical line overlap just like the image above. My next step was to find something simple to give it a bit more detail and make it look unique. My idea was to keep it minimal.

Here are screenshots of how my logo was made. I started off with N and L which are my initials for my name (Nicholas Leonida). I then created a circle to place my initials in.

Professional Contexts 2 - Web Evaluation

I found the professional context 2 web module to be challenging. I have finally learned the basic language of html5 and css3 and am now capable of building and designing my own website using Adobe Dreamweaver. At first it was hard to start and get the hang of coding and wire framing. Although it was challenging, I kept looking back at the presentations we had done in class and overcame my difficulties, I also found the videos made by Jules to be extremely helpful as well as easier to follow. In the end I came up with a really good one page website, I am amazed at the final result, I am looking to find a host and domain to upload it online.

Professional Contexts 2 - Motion Evaluation

I was excited to hear about a project on a motion poster. It was something I had never done before and I enjoyed doing it. I learned many techniques and became even better at Adobe After Effects and more confident in my abilities. Although it was fun, at times it was a bit of a time waste. I think the web module should have been longer because it requires more work and time. Besides that, it was a good experience in my student years and I look forward on doing more designs for companies.

These are some designs of stickers which will be stuck on the bottom of my self promotional container.
One design is to express the steps of applying style. So I rewrote the steps I take to do my hair (as the container is my hair gel container) with how I take on briefs and projects.

Design two is the ingredients, what it took to create this self promotional item in other words. 
I like both ideas, I think they blend with the concept of my self promotional item.
