Project description

Metropolitan Bank is a Asian community bank based in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are currently looking for a new card design for our debit card.  Apart from the Bank's logo and name, which should appear somewhere on the card, and the MasterCard logo, which must appear in the bottom right hand corner of the card, and a microchip, which must be on left side/middle of the card, the graphics and colors are up to you.

We are looking for a credit card design that exudes exclusivity, luxury, maybe featuring some Asian influence, and modern design - which might be difficult, I understand.   

I apologize for the poor quality of the Bank's logo and name.  Perhaps I could ask that when you submit your design, you remake them.  The Chinese words below Metropolitan Bank are as follows:

加 州 金 城 银 行

Please review the spec file for the size of the card/chip and other specifications.

      We like this one. Just for another look, could you lighten up the gold color of the card a bit and make the M logo pop a bit more (you can try another color). Thank you.

  • Gold as u requested. let me know of any changes, thank you #65
    • About #65, @rootreeper

      Thank you for submitting the gold color. The M logo now looks extremely light against the ombre gold backdrop, however. Could you make the M more obvious?

  • Could you please try the dark burgundy tone with the same design? #30

  • Gold color is best match with black to bring out the feeling of prosperity.
    I'd also added the bamboo trees to the design as it symbolizes persistence and continuous growth.
    Thanks #42
  • I used Pheonix in designing the card as Asian people belives that pheonix symbolises the five values which are virtue, duty, propriety, credibility and mercy (德,义,礼,信,仁).
    The 'king of all birds' is put together with an elegant texture as background in order to bring out the luxury and modern feeling, as per request.
    Thanks. #39
