Interchangeable insert in a generic cover.
Free one way ticket to the moon.
Demonstrate your skill.
Metal card. Doubles as a cake cutter.
Is this scratch and sniff or just generous use of white space.
Try the retro look.
Elegantly long and thin. Reminds me of a card I designed for a perfume shop that looked like a scent tester.
Camera obscura. In case the Nikon breaks it comes handy to get the job done.
Folded and playful.
Expandable rubber to test your strength. One more time. And, one more. One last time. Good job. Now, what was the number again?
Reuse old cards for a second hand shop.
Get rid of the evidence you ever met the headhunter.
A clear message from a debt recovery agent. If you don’t pay I’ll break your bones. Here’s the x-ray of my last client broken finger as proof.
Business card for an acupuncturist with small holes to demonstrate what will happen to your skin.
Perforated cards demonstrate what a separation lawyers does.
If you don’t want to separate you can consider marriage counseling with a help of scotch tape.
There is nothing better then a little freebie. In this case a few seeds demonstrating how lush can make your place greener.
A balloon visiting card for a chest physician that is only legible when inflated demonstrates how important it is to have healthy lungs.
Pieces of broken pottery are used to hold the name and phone number for a greek restaurant.
A set of semi-transparent layers allows you to mix and match clothes on the illustrated girl. (Click the image for a larger size.)
Finally, allow me not to explain the meaning of this card for the Toronto hemp company. The target will know exactly what it means.
Let’s start with a cutting edge design. Literally.
And if you managed to cut too deep use this rubber band to stop arterial bleeding.
Which brings me to this bloody cool design. You can play with this forever.
When you’re done playing, look at this concept where the card is in a small plastic bag to protect it from getting wet. Naturally this is done for a swimming instructor. Cheap and great.
You can make use of other inexpensive household objects as well to grab the attention and make sure you won’t fit into the standard business card holder. Like this clothes pin “card”.
Ideally you would need to be relevant to the subject of your profession with your idea. Like this condom pack that is used by a divorce lawyer as his visiting card as well as distributed in bars as a direct marketing piece.
Or this hair grip holder for a hair and make-up artist.
And if you really want to be remembered, give a whoopee cushion. It’s certainly great fun on one hand, or I should rather say one cheek. Personally, I wouldn’t want my persona to be associated with loud farts.
How about these silly glasses? While it will make my 2 year old laugh for sure, good luck with them on the board meeting.
You can stop cracking jokes and still remain playful by designing a card that germinates and demonstrates your abilities to create a great park in no time, as it is done for this landscaper architect.
