Get Carded: Typography

Type has personality; hence it is easily one of my favorite elements of design. The confluence of substance (words) and intention (design) is on display in typography, as they are in this fine selection of business cards for this month’s ‘Get Carded.’ – Jenn

Typography is not simply choosing Times New Roman from the drop-down menu and typing your message; it’s the art of arranging type, playing with the point size, kerning and leading. Well-respected graphic designer, Ellen Lupton said it best: “Typography is what language looks like.” Think of your business card as a type of body language and set your font and design accordingly. What do you want to say? How does it make you feel?  Every business card has a name and contact information, and using typography can set you apart and make a memorable mark in your industry. Here are a few that really catch my eye:
