IMO, You should have the name of your business at the top of the card. I would also have your name in a slightly larger font, to seperate it out.

I would have Tiger Web Studios as the title (top), and then have the URL with the rest of your contact details.

I'm certainly not trying to be an arse in saying this; I promise it's constructive criticism:

But

It looks quite amateur to me and even though there isn't much on the card it feels cluttered, is that tiger your companies' official logo?


##edit##

I did this quickly in MSPAINT..didn't feel like opening PS :P

Business cards, ads etc; in my opinion are all about the borders, it balances the piece. Now I didn't feel like giving it a proper color scheme or even fancy text but here is an idea to better your layout, I feel.



And I don't know the quality to which you want to print this out as, but I would suggest cleaning up your little tiger image as well, lots of edgy marks and they will show on your card. I have a feeling you wanted to change your layout from "the norm" but the reason people use similar fonts, layouts and concepts for advertising is because "they work!"

Hope I didn't over-step my help, good luck!
