UMF got their new business card by running a design contest:
Design professional, clean, luxury business card
Check out UMF's Business card contest…
I want elegant style that is clean and simple. I do not like too many details nor various colors but I would love it to be professional, clean and modern. Maybe a bit luxury as well. I would prefer dark colors over light ones. I do not have anything against some graphics on it as well (maybe in the background with small opacity) as I do not have my personal logo but I do not want it to distract person's attention nor to be really visible. I plan to print it on some paper that has bigger weight, quality and to be matt, maybe to have that paperish texture when you touch it, similar to drawing papers. I am not sure if I can find a shop that can print or engrave the other textures so I think we can skip designing those. Once again I want the card to say its story, when someone takes it in hand to feel quality, yet again simple and effective tool. I'm adding also images as examples and they will be provided in order from the one that I like the most up to the one that I find acceptable but I like the least.
Brand name to include on the business card
Just my full name or something similar (with job title maybe or without)
What to avoid
I don't like to many different color. To be honest I'm not sure if I like more than two. I dont like to many details nor some huge contrasts (like combination of black and red or light green and brown). Also, I would like to avoid all possible stereotypes for developers or people from IT - basically I do not want my name to be shown in some code, nor I want matrix background, or LinkedIn responsive website copy on front side of business card etc. I do not find those mature nor professional.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their business card.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
UMF collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Working with SUNsh!ne has been a great experience. This is the second time we have worked together on a project and I will come back when I need more design work!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
