NFTU #5 – bona fides

business card design # 1 – based on a template by moo.com; other online business card manufacturers are available.

Thinking forward to the sort of work I’m likely to be producing during Identity and Place, I realise that there’s going to be quite a lot of photographing people who I don’t know. In the past, people have often asked why I want to take their picture and then, when I’ve said why, whether I have a card or some other proof that I’m not just some random idiot with a camera. It therefore seems a good idea to get some cards made up.

Probably because I’m coming towards the end of preparing Context and Narrative for assessment, I think I’ll take some of the face strips from C&N assignment 3 to use for the picture side.

And then comes the question of what to put on the back.

My name should go there, obviously, and so should the url (and a small logo) for the OCA. Then do I add a link that goes here? Probably. But I definitely don’t include my phone number or email.

(Assessment displacement activity alert: I think I’ll pose a question about what to put in writing, up on the student forum.)

Indeed, as well as allowing me to “prove” to strangers that I am what I say I am, there is a second purpose to having something with “Simon Chirgwin: photography student” written on the back. It will help make what I’m doing more concrete to me as well; effectively saying it out loud will help with my self-identification as an artist, won’t it?

    Its a good idea. I love the Moo cards. You can have a variety of cards – each one can be totally different – good way to advertise your skills too. You don’t have to put your phone number, student email should be fine.
