Project description

FarmHouse 148 is a vacation rental home in the Sonoma Valley, CA Wine Country. It is a charming 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house. Current pictures and a property description can be found here http://www.vrbo.com/512014 We are looking a make a 'business card' to hand out to potential guests. We are open to many different designs, but we want to ensure that we deliver an expectation of luxury and quality. We envision a card with the name and website listing on the front, possibly with some other info (i.e., 3 bdrm, 2 bath, located in the 'Valley of the moon'). On the back, possibly a few lines of text. 'Walking distance to 9 + wineries', 'large hot tub', 'beautiful chef's kitchen', or the like. We are looking for less; not a jam packed card full of info. The card should grab their attention and get them to check out the website. A QR code may be helpful also. We are also open to a picture or rendering of the front of the house. We are confident that the designers here will come up with great ideas for us.

  • please eliminate the QR code
    • Dear CH, thanks for rating & feedback i upload new version without QR code & submit more new design i hope you like appreciated feedback again

  • QR codes have been removed from designs #14, #15, and #16.
  • not a fan of the overall color combo. the card appearance (colors, font, layout) does not convey a sense of elegance to us
  • color combo is not to our liking overall, not elegent enough not a fan of the graphic
  • please eliminate the QR code.
  • I added two more designs that utilize the qr code on the back. I wanted to keep the front of the card clean and simple so I decided not to add anything more. Design #10 has a simple qr layout and design #11 features pictures of your home. Do you prefer either of these designs to my original concept? I can keep making changes so feel free to request them.
  • Dear Ch, can i participate in your contest or you already choose design ? i am very intrusted to work
    • yes, please participate! we are open to more ideas

    • Thanks you sir i upload my design very soon i hope you like my different idea & designs thanks

  • I rated the 4 cards in order of preference based on the font. As far as the gold strip on the 2 new designs, I am not a fan for this application. To me, it takes away from the classy look we are trying to achieve.
  • Thank you for your response! It really helps to understand what you like/dislike about each design. Taking your feedback into consideration I decided to give you 3 different new font types in designs #2, #3, and #4 to get an idea of which direction you want to go with the font choice. I have featured another script (easier to read) as well as a serif and a sans-serif font. We can play around with specific typefaces so let me know if you prefer any of these options!
  • Dear kaylorsan, Design #1 is my first concept for your vacation rental business card. I decided to keep the design rustic, but also modern and elegant. I created a custom icon to represent your lovely home, which features the unique structure of the front of your house. I would be more than happy to make any adjustments for you, so please don't hesitate to ask! Sincerely, Marleighna Claunch

      |--| Hello Marleighna. Nice start. We both really like it. Simple, but elegant. The only 'negative' feedback is the font for 'Farmhouse 148'. We like the script, but it is a little difficult to read. Perhaps a different font would work better. We also like the icon; nice idea.

  • #37, #38, and #39 are my newest designs, which feature a new icon, font, and layout for the back of the card.
  • sorry. not to our liking at all. it's creative and unique, but not for our application.
  • very nice. we like the 'logo' and overall layout. However, There is a lot of 'white space'. Perhaps a color background (grays, black) would help that.
    • Dear CH, thanks for rating & feedback i upload new version #30

  • much better. can we also see the orange/red color changed? maybe a lighter cream or green or something along the color tone of the house
  • the back looks pretty good, however, we don't like the outline on the front
  • We like the back, but the front is not to our liking. It looks like a blurry picture
  • Hi CH; In #25 I gave the house the 'Valley of the moon' slogan and effect! In #26 I made an outlines and select one view for the back to be elegant and to motivate clients to know more and visit the website. Hope you like it. Regards Regards
  • clever, but not to our liking
  • clever, but not to our liking
  • looks too 'victorian' for our tastes
