I had already completed the bad guy business card assignment, so I was inspired to create a business card for the Steadfast Sleuths as well. I adapted the Create Your Own Business Card assignment to fit this week’s objective of having all of the assignments relate to multiple noir106 characters. I incorporated all of the Steadfast Sleuths’ names into the business card as well as one of the lines from our radio show. Because they move around so often, The Sleuths usually give out the cards themselves and are found in the phone book or at the police station for contact. Compared to the villain card, I decided to use similar font in the magnifying glass, which I found in an online search, and used a more curvy and less aggressive font for the name of the PI group. The card was designed and edited in Photoshop and then uploaded to Flickr. The clean and simple design of the card is supposed to be a foil of Shannon Mills’ text-filled card, but the two still have a similar color scheme.
