People can underestimate the power of simplicity when it comes to design. Business cards especially, people tend to over-do it and try and get the best looking card around, or they go the other direction try to get the cheapest price, which unfortunately leads to cheap quality. Over thinking it and a million different choices don’t help much when thinking about a bizzo card.
If everyone lived like that dude ‘simple simon’ then it would be perfect. Some of the hottest looking designs going round from logos, biz cards, album covers, shopfronts (you name it) are the most uncomplicated and beautiful designs. Take a peek at some of our own business card designs.
One of my favourite ideas when it comes to a business card is using this amazing tool called a stamp. Not the ones you chuck on a letter and post, but an actual real life rubber stamp. A few important contact details and a good slab of ink and bang onto a piece of wood or cardboard, paper or even slap it on someones hand if that is whats laying around. If you think about it a stamp would be so cost effective, they are created with the purpose of being used over an over again. You can recycle paper to apply to and even change the shape, look and feel every time you hand out a business card to someone.
