Hi everyone, I hope you're having a great day. I decided to put my creative skills to the test by entering the business card design contest. I was inspired by the designs I saw and wanted to try something new on Hive.

I have a strong passion for anything that promotes Hive and believe that this is one of the best ways to expose Hive to others. Using my phone and Canva, I created a simple design. Below is the design process:

The frontside Design Process
For those who are well-versed with Canva, it's easy to utilize templates for designing purposes.

But I decided to start from scratch and selected a plain business card template.

I located a circle in the elements section and altered its color to red.

Then, I made a copy of the circle and changed its color to black, but had to match the red colours to the Hive logo colour. I positioned these two circles in the corner of the rectangle shape, with the black circle overlapping the red and dominating it.

Later, I incorporated the Hive logo that I had previously obtained from a free-to-use design by @doze. The logo was positioned on the white space on the right side.

To add a creative touch, I utilized the free elements on Canva and found a world map. The world map represents my desire for Hive to achieve widespread adoption.

The subsequent step was to include some information on the business card. I included details that could help someone quickly understand Hive, specifically information about the Hive blockchain.

I added the first QR code that I created using ME-QR. By scanning the code, anyone can be directed to to sign up. This was placed under the Hive logo. Additionally, I included the Hive website where anyone can log in and learn more about Hive.

I finally had a nice design for the front side and moved on to the back side.

The Backside Design Process
The back side was a simple design I created. I placed the second QR code, which leads to the Hive Philippines community on Discord, at the center of the rectangle. I retouched the QR code by changing the three round circles to red.



I copied the two circles from the front side and pasted them on the shape.


I duplicated each circle, resulting in four circles, two red and two black. Similar to the front side, I positioned the circles in the corners of the rectangle, one in the top left corner and the other two in the bottom right corner.


As the business card design contest is a test run for the @hiveph community (Philippines), I attempted to use a symbol representing the country or community logo. I found a round Philippines flag on Canva. I aimed to create a unique design by positioning the logo between Hive and Philippines.




And Voilà! I created two fantastic designs using just Canva.

It was a fantastic opportunity for me to try something new this week, and I am grateful to @acidyo for the chance
