38 Awe-Inspiring Business Cards of Designers In The Community

The business card is a part of a designer’s promotion tool. Whether we’re meeting our potential client for the first time or introducing our design service to new people, we can always try to win their heart by using a well-designed business card. If the client were already impressed by our portfolio then we should double the impression by giving a beautiful business card. Perhaps the beautifully designed business card could encourage the client into contacting us.

    It’s nice to see designers taking the time and spending the money to do it right, instead of opting for an online printer for cheap boring cards.

    The Fiverr cardboard box cutout is my favorite in the list, but it’s maybe a bit impractical. Too thick to comfortably keep in your wallet and can be easily mistaken to be a piece of packaging waste at quick glance.

    I also like Mikmik one. It’s simple and has some nice illustrations, though it makes me think of Twitter. Too many cards are taken to the extreme in simplicity. Having just a colored shape or a shiny name on a matte background is starting to get a bit boring. Feels like the card owner doesn’t have much to say.

    Some of these are really great! However, to be completely honest, I am so sick of designers using the “Helvetica + catch phrase + shift rotate to a 45 degree angle = business card” formula. I think we can dig deeper than that.

    Hi,

    Wouldn’t really call these awe inspiring. Some are good but not much in terms of creativity when it comes to the actual layout of the card. What about Spot UV? Different shapes, foil blocked? Not really thinking outside of the box.

    Seen many articles regarding creative business cards, much better collections than these.

    concept wise i agree with Dan, but graphically there are some real jems here.
    shape is only interesting if it supports the concept and too often designers just choose an odd shape for the sake of it instead of thinking about purpose, target audience and so fort.
