Business card design: A rite of passage for any designer
by Tobias van Schneider
"Look at that subtle off-white coloring. The tasteful thickness of it.”
You don’t have to be an American Psycho to appreciate a beautiful business card. It’s a rite of passage for any designer. One of the first projects we do, and one we love to do at any point in our design career, for work or for fun.
The business card is a satisfying exercise in taste and restraint. You only have so much room, and so many opportunities to change it. Once it’s printed, it’s done. A little piece of your design out in the world. In people’s pockets, on desks, in their wallets.
