    Red and silver always marry nicely and it's very clean and concise. The one thing that kills it for me, though, is the barcode. Seemingly a necessary evil when you want to market yourself, but the big, black pixelbeast at the bottom just throws the flow of the whole card. Apart from that, I love it.

    Not a huge fan of the Q-code thing or whatever they call it, it isn't necessary since you have given all your details anyway, not sure what it is like in other countries but here, q-codes aren't commonly used and not many poeple even bother with downloading an app for it, and that is a slice of the market your potentially missing out on.

    I would change the silver/grey to white aswell, it will give a lot more contrast to to the red and remove the slight gradient your have on the card. Instead of having shading on your brandmark, try setting yourself apart by using print and paper techniques to make it stand out. I am already imaginging it embossed out of a uncoated stock. Design agencies will be more interested if you can also show your knowledge and creativity of paper stocks.

    Nice, you have to find a card printer that can print the whole card and in good condition.

    Thanks for the responses! I was considering if I should leave the QR code or not too, thanks for your input on it. I'll mess around with the colors and see how it goes! As for the logo, I have a whole story behind it and I'll share it some other time.

    As far as printing goes, it's not an official business card. Just a senior in highschool assigned to a project, don't think I'm going to need to print it for my portfolio.

    If you can afford it you can plop the QR code onto the reverse side -- that's what I did.

    I believe a QR code will still read if it is silver.

    My kneejerk reaction: Looks great

    After reading some of the comments: I agree that the gray should be a lighter value, if not white. The contrast between the red and the white may be a bit strong to look at for some folks (but as they say, you can't please everyone right?).

    Also, I think I agree with the idea of "What should it be saying about you?" - but as I thought about it, if your business card looks great, it could at like a "teaser" - you get an idea of what the person with the business card can do. If you have a website, I think I'd put the link on there too, and maybe replace the "Q Code" with the URL. I don't have a smart phone, so if I had your business card, that code would just be wasted ink.

    I dig it brother. It's sexy.

    I think I'd also lighten the gray like hitnrun mentioned but I personally wouldn't make it white. I feel that the red gradient on the front gets too dark and I'd definitely lighten that up. I don't know about the qr code. It doesn't really bother me but the card might look even more elegant without it. It's up to you.
