painted flowers for logo #7

I place the other information on the card layout. The painted oval had to be squished down to fit the layout. The names have been smeared to protect the innocent, but you get the idea of the layout of the business card.

Basic design of the business card is necessary for this project. Fonts desired, wording . This one had a monogram that the client wanted. I did about a 30 minute search and giving up, not finding a match. Instead it was necessary to manually trace the lettering shapes from her example using bezier curves in Adobe Illustrator. All those hours learning how to draw in graphic design pay off. We have an outlined monogram below, able to be filled with solid color and able to create a shadow with grey filter if needed.

Thought you’d like to see a typical small job that I do in a day.

This customer needed a watercolor painting of orchids for her business card. She also wanted her card laid out professionally with her company text curved below the orchids. She was not able to get her previous printer to do the monogram she wanted so she sent me an image of it so I could see about doing it for her. First step for me is asking for photography or sketches and/or previous designs to use as a guide. Verbal drawings are so easily misinterpreted.

This is the information she supplied.
