This design was made to be a business card for a friend. At first, we were joking about making it, but as we looked at possible free tiger vectors to use, I thought of a simple design to use because of this first picture. No sketches were made, we jumped straight into Illustrator.
I started by opening a 3.5 x 2inch artboard with a 1.125 inch bleed in Illustrator, the dimensions of an average business card. I focused in on the tiger’s eyes, took out some of the lines on the face, made the face fit into the dimensions, and found a font that the guy I was making it for likes. He told me what to write and the design was done in about twenty minutes.
