For years and decades, business cards have been an integral part of business communication all over the world and their role is invaluable. It is not only the way to transfer contact data and professional or personal information in a fun and easy way, but also the sign of respect to the person you communicate with as well as the part of general visual presentation. This small piece of paper can have huge impact on the success of communication and partnership.
Indeed, business cards allow both sides of conversation get the necessary information easily and conveniently saving time and effort people would have to spend on looking for a piece of paper and tool for writing or place to write comfortably. In a modern dynamic and fast-paced world, business communication often happens “on the go”, in places or conditions where writing down phone numbers, emails and names is far from comfortable. Exchanging business cards takes split seconds and looks much more serious, business-like, and convenient. Perhaps, that is the main reason why business cards are a must-have for a business person being a part of their general business image.
No wonder, the design of business cards is now a big sphere and broad field for creative search. Most customers working over branding or rebranding of their companies put a business card in top positions of most needed branded items. It has to be mentioned that although business cards as design objects are quite restricted with various limitations and standards, designers are trying more and more ideas to make their work in this domain stand out of the crowd.
So, today we have collected the diverse set of business cards shared by designers from different countries on design platforms like Dribbble and Behance. They can become a sort of food for thought for designers as well as some clue to customers who are thinking over custom-designed business cards. Get inspired and join in the game!
