It can be exciting to get and use a business card, especially the first time. Often, however, people don’t have control over the design of the card that represents them. In this project, students create a business card in Adobe InDesign, and in the process, they learn about typography and layout design. Students also investigate how tone, audience, and purpose impact design decisions, whether they’re representing themselves or an organization. Finally, students engage in a formal review and redesign process to help them improve and expand their design skills.
