I’ve just been asked this question by many a client and I’m not so sure my answer was right.
I said, ‘A good business card identifies a person with a product, brand (and/or) company and gives the contact details for that person.’ I didn’t mention creativity or design. Should I have done?
I know it completely depends on the person and the context of the job, however, I started thinking about business cards and where they fit in the scheme of Corporate Identity design and they are difficult things to design if you want to challenge the conventions. But, should you challenge the conventions?
I am also redesigning my business card, so I best practise what I preach, yeah? I dunno, what do you guys think makes a good business card?

I love the ability where I can plan, prioritise, design, develop and deliver blended learning solutions for a variety of markets. I love to consult and advise about the best use of digital learning and improve design standards in line with evolving ways of working. I also enjoy to keep up to date with, understand and regularly recommend emerging technologies and practice to improve individuals, teams and organisational capabilities.
With over 12 years digital learning experience and demonstrated experience in both instructional design and eLearning development, I have also a lot of experience conducting training needs analysis including how to leverage principles such as design thinking and root cause analysis to understand and address performance gaps. I also have led many facilitation workshops and even presented at iDesignX and Game Developers Conferences both here in Australia, Wales and in the United States.
With strong multimedia, training and programming backgrounds, I understand modern learner behaviour including micro and social learning, I am very familiar with most LMSes and app-based (XCode and Android Studio), adult learning models and e-solutions.
I also possess the ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously, whilst being pro-active in delivering work independently with minimal supervision, but enjoy working in teams.
I've been told I am a resilient, relationship focused guy which can manage and navigate conflicting views and stakeholders/subject matter experts.
