New Ubuntu Brand … New Business Card

14 March 2010 939 views 4 Comments

With the recent announcement of the new “light” look for Ubuntu, I thought that it would be really cool to have some business cards for Ubuntu Members that went along with the new style. I talked to Martin Owens, and he was able to throw together a new design for a business card based on the new boot splash screen.
I am not an artist (and I don’t know how to use programs like Inkscape) so Martin was even nice enough to teach me how to edit the file so I don’t print a business card with his name on it. You can download the source file by visiting Martin’s website.

Also, you will need to install ‘texlive’ package to get the correct fonts.

    Hey Chris,

    I was chatting to Martin last night and he showed me his design. I thought I’d have a go at making my own design. Have a look:

    Not bad, but I find it a bit dull to be fair, don’t you think? I think I’d prefer something brighter with aubergine dots, or a mix of both 🙂

    Inkscape is simple enough to stumble through after using the included tutorial thing. Plus its name isn’t a bondage reference. I highly recommend learning to use it asap.

    I do like the addition of the gpg fingerprint down the right side. Very creative.
