When I asked David Airey to redesign my business card in early 2008, I told him I wanted a card people would pause over, say “great card!” and want to keep. He more than delivered.
I like receiving cool business cards as much as I like giving them out. My favorites are cards that show a creative flair, alignment with the way the person or business positions themselves in the marketplace, and differentiates them from everyone else.
Here are some terrific resources for re-thinking your own business cards. Even if you’ve got a card you love, these are an entertaining browse. There are a number of good possibilities for mediators and some may serve as brainstorm sources for you.
