Good design is everywhere around us, and since just about anything can spark an idea, it’s also a great commodity. I chose to highlight business cards today because I really like thinking of this small promotional tool as a mini-palette on which to convey a brand. It’s not a lot of space but it can be used creatively to make a big impact. I think it’s wonderful that so many designers are breaking outside of the normal 3.5″ x 2″ design printed on white card stock. Here are just a few that captured my attention, but there is a lot more inspiration out there.
