A Tale of Two Cards
There are a constant barrage of business cards left on my front porch from tree trimmers, cleaning folks, landscapers, gardeners and others insinuating that I am not doing a very good job of these things myself. I don’t take offense because I am busy and don’t put as much attention into my house as I probably should. Hopefully my friends and family get that and don’t think less of me. But, as I am sort of in the market for a cleaning person, I kept two cards in particular from last week. This first one wasn’t too horribly offensive design-wise. With a cute little cleaning girl and an easily legible typeface, I wasn’t tempted to throw it immediately into the trash. Monica and Lucio might be someone I would give a call regarding my need for help with the housecleaning though I am a bit worried about the “Chemical Included.”
But then the next day I found this treasure. I was blown away by the care and thought put into Jackeline & Dalinda’s marketing efforts. I really appreciate that they care enough about their image to create such an adorable business card. I truly believe that they will put that same care into the cleaning of my home.
Thanks for this post. It is a great illustration of why professionalism matters at any level of business.
Nice post. Illustrates why design so so important at every point of contact with your customers.
There are thousands of businesses, small or otherwise, that could learn a thing or two from Jackeline & Dalinda.
What a great example of how putting some thought into your brand and image can help to make the sell. Chalk another one up for great design success!
There’s a lot of vary type of beliefs on design and style that it’s out of the question to please anyone regrettably…
