Imagine you’re to your first film festival. You went on a whim because you had just found out that it was going on that weekend. You grab your things, make the drive and are ready to be in the atmosphere of so many other people who are passionate about the same things as your are. But are you actually ready?
All of the sudden, you start talking with and networking with the people there. You come to a situation where you really want the person to remember you for future projects, but have nothing to give them besides writing your number on a piece of paper that will get lost with receipts. You needed a professional business card.
Using Adobe InDesign, I have recently created by first business card and it is actually a little bit easier than I anticipated.

All you have to do is search on google for InDesign templates for business cards and you will have endless options. You can pay for more fancier ones or download a little more basic ones for free.

Once you input it into Indesign, you can change all of the settings, colors, change around the format a little, and make it esthetically pleasing to you. I highly recommend designing and ordering business cards when you don’t direly need them, that way when you are in that situation, you are prepared and they’re in your back pocket for people to remember you.
