1. Sans + Structure

This is my first Skillshare class and I'm super excited about it! I'm currently studying graphic communication design and wanted to stay active and do some projects while I'm out of class for the summer! 

I started out with the basics. I selected important information to put on the card, grouped it, and centered it. Then i started playing with how to separate it.

  

I liked having the information split but then I started playing with emphasis. Obviously I wanted my name to be the focus, but because my name is also my website, and that's where my work can be viewed the easiest, I thought it wouls be good to play that up as well. I also used different weights of the typeface and small caps to make it stand out more and make it one stand alone piece of the card layout.

  

Finally, I also played out having my name be even more pronouced, in a horizontal fashion. 
  

I'm still considering whether having my title and contact information centered is the best option, but I'm liking it so far. I'm thinking card 4 and 5 are my favorite. Any feedback is appreciated!
