Hey all, I know this is for sigs only, but since I've seen such stellar work and the sigs that have been created for me in the past have been so awesome, I'm hoping you might bend the rules for me a little bit.
I'm trying to design a business card and I have the basic logo in my mind and variations on colors, but I'm such a terrible artist that I definitely need help before I take it to a local shop to get made.
I was thinking sort of a Matte Black background with a metallic Gold or Silver outline of a martini glass, with metallic Green olives (a big one or a few small ones). As for fonts I really have no clue. They have to be easy to read, but not so boring that people say 'meh' and it doesn't stick out in their mind. I'm also not sure is the lettering should be a different color than the martini glass. The color obviously has to contrast with the background, and the metallic silver or gold might blend into the background in poor light.
If anyone cares for the background of why I need a card, I recently quit my job as a bartender and told them I'd be happy to work weekend nights. The assistant manager said no, so that means I'll have weekends free, so I was thinking of bartending for weddings and other events.
If the card was flashy and simple, that would be great.
Here's a crappy picture of what I have in my mind for the logo. Looking forward to what you artists can come up with.
