Since I realised I was gay, I've wanted a gay card. So I made one. And then I decided to make more. But I didn't want to restrict it just to gay people, I wanted to include everyone. So that's where the Lgbtiplus Card comes in.
The top left of the card shows the logo Lgbtiplus. The top right is where you make it a gay card, a trans card, a bi card, a pan card, an ace card, a lesbian card, an ally card etc. Whatever you want. Underneath that is your name, and then your date of birth and preferred pronouns. Your address comes next, followed by your unique card number, date of issue and issuer (Lgbtiplus Card Official). Your signature will be printed via an image you send to us, as well as a photo of your face. The bottom code will summarise details on the card to create a unique code. On the bottom right is a QR code which will link to a unique page on our website with your profile (we will only list details that you wish to display on your page).
On the back of the card is; your drag name (if applicable), your organ donor status, your blood type, any allergies you may have, and any medical conditions you may have. On the right is a key which explains what everything on the front is.
I created the design based on a pattern by Amy Garro I came across. The design had appeared on her 13 Spools blog (you can see her work at http://www.13spools.com/). She has granted permission to use her pattern as a base of the design.
I replicated the pattern across the card and altered the colours. I chose to use the Gilbert font as it was created in memory of Gilbert Baker, a designer and LGBTI+ activist. It seemed an appropriate font considering the use of the card. The Gilbert font is free to use.
The function of the card is whatever the owner wants it to be. It's main use is for novelty. It also displays a sense of pride in your identity. To others, it's a fun way to 'come out'.
Please note: this is not a valid proof of identification. As a result this allows you to upload any information and pictures you want (however we will not print anything offensive).
The packaging will be discrete in appearance.
