It makes sense that in a world that is inundated with marketing tactics ranging from media blitzes to viral campaigns, the design of the business card had to evolve. A plain ol' rectangular card just ain't gonna cut it anymore.
I've looked at this topic before, and it never ceases to amaze me at how far people will go to catch a potential client's eye.
Innovative Business Card # 1: Jim Profitt Homemade Furniture Tiniest Chair Ever
I like this little card. From the tiny chair to the chicken-scratch writing, it screams homemade. And that's the point.
Innovative Business Card # 2: TedEx
What better way to catch the eye than by playing off of an existing mega-corporation's logo? I couldn't pull this off; JohnEx wouldn't work (unless you're talking about my ex-wife).
Innovative Business Card # 3: Roger Keynes, Jobless Writer
I sooooo wish I had thought of this.
Innovative Business Card #4: Cutting Edge
I wonder if you can really shave with it?
It's shiny and it's shaped like a giant razor blade. Definitely eye-catching. But these days I'd be careful trying to board an airplane with this card.
