15 Brilliantly Creative Business Cards

There are loads of great business cards around so I’ve decided to put together a collection of my favourites.

Quite a few of these have circulated around the internet a bit so I apologise for any repeats. Because of this it’s also fairly difficult to track them back to their designer. I researched a few and then realised that I really don’t have long until my deadline so possibly ought to prioritise that instead, so I apologise for that also.

This is one of my favourites to start us off. Beautifully simple idea for a divorce lawyer as well as being extremely practical.

Next we have the reverse of this one. Not quite as effective but still a nice idea for a marriage councillor. 

Another take on this is done by the agency Master Promo in Brazil:

and who doesn’t love a bit of perforation?

The chain reaction project use this technique just as effectively. By allowing the business card to be split it also allows it to be distributed – perfect for a project all about passing things on:

With advancements in technology allowing us to print on a wide variety of materials, this is fast becoming an integral part of many business card designs. From these sponges for a seller of cleaning products (by Fields in Brazil):

To balloons for a Chest Physician:

A nice use of broken pottery for a Greek restaurant:

And a pencil for a proofreader, although the best part of this idea, in my opinion, is the overly large rubber on the end of the pencil.

By using a thin sponge this yoga company can easily convert their card into a mini yoga mat:

But possibly the most extreme use of material I’ve found is the use of concrete for this construction company. A nice use of scale and materials. I’m just not sure quite how much it’d weigh!

The use of a peel away sticker by Bart, Turkey emphasises the benefits of this personal trainer:

But sometimes simple proves best as Spenat, Sweden, prove with this great card for a Second Hand Shop:

A snapped credit card style is perfect for a credit counselling society:

And just one small cut and 2 folds turns this card into a simple and elegant card for bespoke tailoring:

However possibly my favourite design of all only requires 2 green fingerprints to make it work:

By taking the simple phrase “green fingers” and putting 2 well placed prints where the card would be held a beautifully simple identity for a gardening company was created. I love it! I saw this card in A Smile in The Mind years ago but can find no evidence of it online at all. I’ve searched everything I can think of, and in the end resorted to scanning the book and enhancing the card outlines which explains the less-than-perfect picture quality, Sorry!

If anyone has anymore they think should be on this list please tell me and I’ll try and track them down.
