Design Tips from a Visiting Card

I have started my own consulting business and one of the first things I needed to have was a business card. Instead of designing on my own, I chose a website this time. After I chose the layout and typed my content, I came across some good tips about design.

Please check the following:

1. Information is accurate and spelled correctly
2. Text is legible and contrasts against the background
3. Images are clear and don't appear blurry
4. Nothing is overlapping and close to the margins

I found these tips really useful. Use these as a check-list after you have designed your slides.

Is my information accurate?
Are there any spelling mistakes?
Is my text legible?
Is the text colour contrasting well with the slide background?
Is my image pixellated (blurred)? Usually happens when we use low resolution images
Is my text/ image overlapping anywhere?

Here is the visiting card:
