What is the logo supposed to represent? It looks like a MW

I like it. It's simple, clean, elegant and classy. However, I have to agree with azneric, the "mh" Looks like "MW". No big deal. I'm sure people will figure it out when they see your company name.
What are the "P" and "M" numbers on the card?

Lettering on the front of the card seem too "squiggly" BUT when you turn it over, it does make sense so I think its fine. :)

I like the colour scheme you chose, nice and rich.

Thanks :D. Everyone I have shown recognises the letters as MH. The reason the H looks like that is so the card can be viewed either way up. The logo is the same either way up, which I think is cool.

S-Man, the numbers with the p and m in front are my home phone and mobile(cell) phone numbers. That is how our number formatting works in Australia. The 08 is the state area code.

Cheers, see my post above in regards to the logo, and why it's like that.

That's OK. Once you see the logo and flip the card around, it really does look good. Everyone seems to think its very smart too. The concept is known as an Ambigram. (external link)

I think it'll be memorable, which is the point I think. As for the MW/MH issue, I think that whoever gets it will turn the card over, read Hossen, and they'll never openly admit that they thought it was MW. The problem solves itself.

Whilst I quite like the idea of the ambigram - I'm affraid I dont like the colour scheme.

Could just be the way the photo's have come out (by a photographer!) but they look like they are printed on rather dull recycled card? - Maybe glossy card would improve the look?

I disagree with TJ.....I think the recycled card look is a great idea.......... see to each his own.
