MyGolfSpy - Business Card Ideas


Recommended Posts

  • SPY VIP

Ok fellas MyGolfSpy needs an official business card for the PGA Show and other events. So...put your thinkin' caps on.

 

I definitely want to include the logo on the card. But I also want to add some type of secret agent, spy like espionage type feel to the card.

 

Maybe even a secret code that people have to come to the site to decipher or something along those lines.

 

(If we chose your design we will send you a prize...some cash and gifts...sound good)

 

Can be just an idea, a sketch, photoshop design, etc...all ideas accepted.

 

ANY IDEAS??

You could make it MacGyver-esque: have different slide-out gadgets such as divot tool, tee, ball marker and clip. Also, have the MGS logo done up as a hologram.

 

Of course it would probably have to be made of plastic - like a credit card - and about 3 to 4 credit cards thick, thus making it more like a business "case" as opposed to a business "card."'

 

Oh well, I tried....

Black card, all white text. Have the MGS logo on the right side of the card and place it in a circle where the background is in white and then do crosshairs over the image if you're feeling edgey.

 

I imagine the MGS name would be to the left of the image with the details underneath. For the MGS name go with white text (on the black background) except for the O in golf. Replace the background with white and then have the "o" in black. The background colour change could either be a circle to better fit the shape of a golf ball or a square to be like a computer cusor.

 

If you want to roll with a secret login/code thing, I would put a skill testing question on the back of card in green text (think assembly code text colour) and have the question answer be the login password or something. This way you know people not only read the card but thought about it by thinking about the answer or reseaching it to be able to login.

 

If I can scrounge some time tomorrow I'll do up a quick photoshop image for you to play around with.

 

Other thoughts for changing how the logo would be presented:

A: Have an outline of a human head and neck and colour block it with white. Shrink the MGS logo down, block it in with black and place in the brain area of the head

B: Less spy themey, but you could go with something like a Ying/Yang symbol (which I bet describes your relationship with some of the OEM's some days) and then place a colour blocked out image of the MGS logo where the dot would be at the center of the tear drop. IE a blacked out MGS logo placed in the center of the white site and a white logo placed in the center of the black side.

What about forgoing the card altogether and getting the info printed on a actual magnifying glass?

Maybe like these: http://www.logosurfing.com/promotional-items/desktop-&-office-items/magnifiers/clear-handle-magnifier.html

 

Just a quick google search. 11 day turn around.

 

Something like this would be less likely to be lost amidst the other cards that people will pick up. Plus, they may get passed to the kids of the attendees. That way, every time the kid takes it out to play, the attendee remembers MGS. I have stacks of business cards that no matter how cool, are in a pile, forgotten.

 

Granted you will want to have paper ones to pass out in a non-convention setting. However, at an event such as the PGA show, having this atypical business card will stand out.

 

Plane ride and a hotel room and I'll be happy to help you pass them out. :lol:

This is my idea but I found someone had already invented it, I hate that! Anyway, how about a scratch and win business card? It can have your details on and the recipient scratches and wins....free membership in the forum!! ...or something

Make it lenticular so you can only read it from certain angles. Also make sure you print one out that has my name on it and send it along with my first paycheck

Nothing helps you find a lost ball better than a provisional hit straight down the middle.

Simple design, the fedora can be put on the backside. I tried to match the font the best I can.

Crowdsourcing is hard to do. Not a lot of relationships are built and the product suffers in the long run.

Would it be possible to pick 3 designs and then work with them more closely? Just trying to look out for the collective.

Explain what you mean Funky. Not sure I followed you on this one. Really just looking for clever concepts that would be super creative ways of displaying the brand at shows etc. I can then make them up in Photoshop. I don;t want you to feel like you have to actually do the mock-ups.

This is a good idea and creative..will have to see if we can find one that will allow us to imprint what we need on them.

Just that croudsourcing only gets you so far with concepts. I am sure you would have done this anyway, but furthering the designs with the concepts creator. Ideas only go so far. And I just figured I had Photoshop so I might as well use it.

I think a grip idea would work. Have it shaped like a grip with the Info on it. It just all depends on how much you want to spend. Also, I think a fedora with the info would be neat.
