80+ Creative & Unique Business CardsWeb Designer Wall
This immediately made me think of Senior Projects! Almost all of the proposed projects have a business card as one of their promotional pieces. These are great examples (especially if you are only creating 1) of how to really set yourself apart!

Graphic designers create and communicate ideas visually, verbally, and in writing. As a graphic designer, you could find yourself developing and designing publications, creating brochures for products, or even designing logos for businesses.
Freedom Factor: Freelance graphic designers often work from home offices and can set their own hours. If you're a creative person, you may find many jobs repetitive and stifling... but not this one!
Training: Earning an associate's degree or certificate in graphic design from a two-year or three-year professional school should qualify you as an assistant to a graphic designer.
Salary: According to the American Institute of Graphic Arts, staff-level graphic designers had a median salary of $45,000 in 2008.
