Print Inspiration: Business Cards

Print Inspiration: Business Cards

Do we still use the  business card? I love the business card, might be a bit 90s old school of me but I found this concept still working nowadays. With all the social/portfolio platforms where we can share our work like your own site, unlike the business card. It's still very fond to show an impression of yourself on a piece of cardboard. Coming to this, I don't think there's a trend in designing a business card. I think the best concepts are the ones that relevantly showcased either you, your brand or the company you represent.

Behance Business Cards Design

Behance Business Cards Design

I am a fan of Behance, I remember in 2007 when they launched the beta version and I got an invite, I was so stoked. Now after all these years it's awesome to see how it evolved to become one of the biggest websites for creatives. One of the things that makes Behance really cool is also their attention to detail on their own branding. Oscar Ramos Orozco shared the business card designs he created for Behance and you can see what I am talking about in terms of design.

Super Cool & Creative Business Cards

If you looking for creative inspirations this is exactly what you need, think outside the box or maybe I should say the card, these business card have nothing to do with the usual you see everyday and that's what makes them special.

10 Super Creative Business Cards

If you thinking of getting a new business card to impress everyone that sees it, here is the inspiration you need. This selection you will see all kind of things people thing of just to be different and very creative by having a business card that stands out a lot from the others.

The Simplicity and Elegance of Black & White Business Cards

Why go too crazy when you can keep it simple and elegant with black & white. A great business card design can be in any form of design or color, but sometimes all you need is to keep it simple in order for guaranteed success, and here are some really good samples of how you can get it done right. The main thing about business card is to represent yourself and/or your work in that little piece of paper (if you chose to go with paper with all the other options we have today), and a lot of people find it difficult to do that. One thing for sure is that you can't go wrong if you make it simple, no matter what is your working area, a black and white business card will fit for anyone. It's the forces of the combination of the two main colors that give a great contrast and such an appeal onto the design. Combine this with other classic elements and you have a great business card. So, how can you express yourself on your business card if it's so simple on black and white? That's when the extra elements will get in play, in these samples if you see each business card on this selection you will notice that most of them have an extra element to increment the black and white design, it can be a special typo, a different design, some drawings, anything that will help the card to represent yourself better. Worse case scenario as you can see in some of these is that the card will be too simple but yet elegant. Enjoy!

Creating a new Business Card

This week I had to create a new Business card for my company, ZEE. I have to say, this sort of work, like creating a business cards, is not as easy as some people think. Actually it’s pretty hard to condense our business to a size of a business card. "The business card... is kind of an extension of yourself. It's a little bit of giving yourself to someone else."— Ken Erdman, founder of the Business Card Museum, Erenheim, PA Looking for some ideas We started looking for some references and we found good sites like: http://creativebits.org/cool_business_card_designs http://www.flickr.com/photos/dailypoetics/sets/72057594104389710/ http://veerle.duoh.com/blog/comments/the_new_duoh_logo_identity/ http://desktoppub.about.com/od/businesscards/a/bcard_parts.htm Creating the card With some references in mind we had the idea of using a tag cloud showing what we do and the technologies we work with. So one side would be white with our logo and addresses, while the other side in blue with the tag cloud in white.The final result:Front Side: Back:
