Company, Name, Address, Phone, Fax, Email…
In this digital age of laptops, cellular phones, and PDAs, the
business card has, ironically, proliferated. More than merely a
source of contact information, the business card provides an
enticing glimpse into the corporate culture. The more memo-
rable the card, the more memorable the contact.
With the ever increasing competition for eyes, business cards
have become more elaborate and sophisticated with each pass-
ing hour. Good designers know that limitations exist only in the
mind and that some of the most memorable designs are created
within some of the tightest budgets.
These unique and innovative cards travel from individual to
individual, many times removed from the original recipient.
Often these cards make their way into the hands of distant,
yet potential, prospects. Such a journey is the product of
successful design.
But the greatest of design solutions not only captivate and
entice, they clearly communicate with their audience.
The Difficult Task of Choosing
After receiving thousands of submissions from around the
globe, the design staff at Blackcoffee chose what they consid-
ered to be the best of the best. Contained within the pages of
this book are more than four hundred examples of cards that cut
through the clutter and successfully communicate information in
a legible manner. The judging was based on functionality, com-
munication, and, of course, the wow factor. We hope you’ll be
wowed as well.
