This week in public relations publications, we were tasked with the assignment to create a business card for any organization that we wanted.
I chose to create a business card for Soonerthon.
I am currently on exec for Soonerthon as an Ambassador. As a Soonerthon Ambassador, I am in charge of raising a lot of money (and I mean a whole lot) and keeping track of donation boxes around Norman. I wanted to create a business card for Soonerthon because it is an organization that I am extremely passionate about and actively involved in.
Soonerthon is all about raising money for the incredibly strong kids that have to spend their days at the Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City.
When I was a junior in high school, I lost one of my very best friends to cancer. She spent many of her days at the children’s hospital in Tulsa, OK. She is the reason why I participate in Soonerthon. She was an inspiration to me and so many others from my high school. Unique had a tough fight, but she fought every single day with an extreme amount of strength and a never-ending love for God.
As you may know, I am a total control freak and perfectionist. I like having strict guidelines when it comes to projects and assignments. Assignments like creating a business card for the organization of my choice is hard for me because I like concrete instructions.
I decided to create a business card for Soonerthon because it is an organization that I am a part of, one that I am passionate about and one that I strongly connect to.
When you strongly connect to a brand, it is easy to portray their message through a project. I am glad I could portray my love for Soonerthon through something as simple as learning to create a business card.
I still have a lot of things to learn when it comes to creating through Indesign, but I am finally starting to get the hang of it.
Practice, practice and more practice is all it takes. It might not be perfect yet, but here is an example of what I have learned to do through Indesign so far:
I still have a very long ways to go, but I am learning the process one day at a time.
