What was this challenge? To design a business card for Zeus. Yes, that Zeus. The one who calls Olympus home.
Of course the first image to come to mind was the lightning bolt.
But as I explored Zeus further, I was reminded that there is more to him than just a lightning bolt. I considered exploring that on the opposite side of the card.
The more I thought on it, the more I kept thinking that Zeus is the King of the Olympian Gods and there’s a certain arrogance to that. He’s not going to put a lot of different ways to contact him. You should just know. So I pared it down.
Along the same vein, he wouldn’t have any problem with putting an image of himself on the opposite side of his card.
As I was playing with what I refer to as ‘the visage’ card, I decided two things.
- I liked the map front but it still wasn’t quite right.
- One of the things I love about Moo cards is that you can print multiple backs, so I wanted to take advantage of that.
That all said, here’s what came of my pondering and playing.
The four symbols of Zeus: lighting/thunder, the eagle, the oak and the bull.
I hope you enjoy them :)
