    The back is good...but the front has a lot going on. Also, I would make both sides in portrait style.

    I would have to agree with Jug about the front, it has too much going on. A business card is a way to market your product/service. At first glance a business card should tell what your product/service is. People tend to get distracted easily, so apply the KISS (Keep it Simple Stupid) rule. Don't allow them to interpret anything, make up their mind for them. As for the back, I would have to say the different orientation of text is a little bit odd. Consider putting all text in the same orientation and use different font size to convey most to least important information.

    As a graphic designer, almost nobody gets it right the first time around. If you're willing to keep improving, then that is exactly what it takes. Keep tweaking things, trying different colors, different orientation, different placement of things and different graphics. There's a trap many graphic designer falls victim to. Don't ever use your favorite color, you'll introduce a bias that you will never able to get rid of.

    It is the first time for me to see a business card which i need to turn right or left to look at the contact details
    It's not a big no no - but i wouldn't prefer it on my business card as it now has the look of a ticket for a venue

    The front graphic is nice - i like that design very much

    I think the front looks sick! Best dj business card, visually, I've ever seen. I would put your dj name somewhere on the front though. I see your logo on the bottom right, but if people don't know that means, then it's not very helpful. It's not like your logo is an apple, and your brand is called Apple. I like the colour scheme. I'm not a graphic designer, but blue is my colour. It has just the right amount of colour.

    Because the front is very fancy, I would make the back as simple as possible. It would create a balance between the two. The back is disorienting. I wouldn't have any pictures/logos on the back. Just simple text.

    It looks nice, but the front has too much stuff...the simpler the better
