BUSINESS CARD DESIGN
Business cards are a necessity in every type of business since they are an integral part of brand identity. In order to make connections and expand your circle of business partners (and potential clients), having one such masterfully designed card is a thing every business person needs to have. Business cards usually contain basic personal (business-related) information, such as name, job title, contact information, and, of course, company logo and/or slogan.
You have probably heard of the saying ‘don’t judge a book by its covers.’ However, this is not applicable in advertising because the market has certain expectations when it comes to book cover design.
Companies often need brochure print design to present their providing services and products. Brochures are designed on a folded piece of paper (usually A4, folded three times), or from several pages which are stitched together (but not bound). Brochures often contain a logo, CTA and a website – masterfully designed together with an offer or some other advertising message.
Fliers (also spelled as flyers) are a pretty straightforward type of print material. Besides being one of the cheapest forms of advertising (printed on a piece of paper, usually in A5 format or smaller), they are still at the top of the most effective ones since they easily reach widest audiences directly – by being handed out in the street. The main thing that attracts people via printed fliers is, certainly, effective design.
Posters are basically large notices, pictures or ads printed on a big piece of paper. They contain words and images combined to send a clear message to passers-by but look best when designed and printed on quality paper. The choice of color, element positioning, and words is what together influences having that message get through on a poster.
SHOPPING BAG DESIGN
Shopping bags are a necessity in industries that sell products (shoes, jewelry, clothes, cosmetics, etc.). Being a walking promotional product, they are perfect for advertising purposes because they are usually reused over and over again.
T-shirt design can be printed for promotional purposes (another great type of relatively cheap promo material) or to send a personal message about one’s preferences and attitudes (concert/band, tourist souvenir, course, art, merchandise, etc.). T-shirt design is usually printed on the front side, but can also be printed both on the front and back or on a sleeve via a textile printer.
