I can tell you 80% of the time when the cards arrive I find 50 things wrong with them and things I should have done better and then they go into a huge pile of biz card boxes in my studio.
The other trouble is contact info changes, sometimes unexpectedly sometimes out of need.
No loss, just reworked the card to the newer HebsandFish.com
Next up in late 2008 came this little seen baby-- mainly because I never really liked it. I might rework it for Robopicto.com but as far as my own cards this one just never appealed all that much to me, but as you'll see the vertical card would be a pretty common thread.
This one might have come before the robot card, only because it's just dated late 2008 and I think I like it even less. The image is one of my pieces cut to detail, but it still lists graphic design and websites which makes me think it was a short jump from the PLAN 9 card to the Robot.
This one utilized my DR GROOD piece but the verbage on the card was weak at best-- this has since been reworked as an alternate to my regular card (posted at the end). It has our short lived studio phone listed.
This is probably my most regular card, but to be honest, based on my LUCHA GUNMEN piece, the guns make certain groups nervous. Normally I don't care, but in business you can't offend a potential client-- still being stubborn I stuck with it a long time. We've since decided to shut down hebsandfish.com since we are now Fish and Fish and each have our own websites, so this needed a revamp too.
And option B for business cards:
So this was my final choice-- it combines a few images of different art-- although honestly I liked this joke version I sent to Veronica for approval and suggested changes.
I like babies.
Babies sell, right?
Wasn't sure if people would think the Samurai was about to lop the babies head off-- and I'm not sure I care if they think that, but I opted to drop the baby.
But who knows, I may bring him back.
