Northridge Electric Business Card Design

Northridge Electric Business Card Design

A bold yet professional business card leaves a lasting impression with potential customers. When considering the Northridge Electric business card design, Doohickey sought to combine these elements to generate an impactful response.

First, we leveraged the brand’s color scheme. Balancing the Northridge Electric green with a white background exudes a sense of efficiency and organization. Using the logo design we previously created for Northridge Electric also allowed us to implement an energetic element to the design. Splashes of green within the text, balanced with black and white fonts, draw the eyes to different pieces of information. As a result, these elements combine to create a clean, cohesive design.

Northridge Electric has been providing commercial and industrial electrical services in central New Mexico for more than 30 years. Their commercial electrical construction projects range from office buildings to warehouse space, and all in between. Given their capabilities, we wanted to create a design that reflects their tradition of safety, quality, and productivity.

The Northridge Electric business card design was part of a larger branding initiative that included their logo design, website design and development, flyers, hard hats, and truck graphics.

Shading Options: Flat vs. Dynamic Design

 

Coloring vector shapes for logos uses either flat colors or gradients. Flat logos typically consist of one or two single shades of color that are applied across the whole shape. Gradient logos use two shades of colors that fade into each other to give a sense of dimension and really help make the logo pop. All gradient logos designed by Doohickey® include a flat color version.

Color Options: Coverage for All Applications

 

Choosing the right colors is an important part in creating your brand identity, but did you know there are different types of coloring systems in graphic design?

RGB: is typically how your monitor displays color using light.
CMYK: A printing process where the ink is applied on press in a 4 step layered process.
Pantone: A color matching system with set swatches that are premixed and used in printing (like paint at the store)
Hex: A color-coding system used on websites.

File Types: Raster vs. Vector

 

When it comes to logos, it’s important to have the right files for the right occasion. Pixel-based raster files like JPEGs and PNGs are what you normally see on the web, they come in smaller file sizes and are easy for web browsers to load. However, these files are limited in their size and trying to use them in anything larger than a business card for print can result in low quality pixelation. With EPS and PDF files, you will be able to scale your design to any large sized print and retain the sharpness and quality of the design. This allows your logo to be applied practically anywhere from merchandise to large scale advertising such as billboards.
