as a creative i can appreciate thinking outside of the box; but a lot of the times while on the job we’re required to come up with more practical solutions. so should our major selling tools like business cards break the mould, literally? here are some collections of unique business cards that don’t all hold fast to the 3.5 by 2 inch rectangle.
what do you think? is it ever more impressive to find clever solutions within the box or bust outside of it? should we assume that others will understand that if we are able to push the boundaries that we also respect those same boundaries and know how to successfully maneuver within them? do these unconventional business cards act as a selling point or a potential scare tactic?
graphics make visual communication seem effortless, despite the complex concepts in conveyance. when you set those graphics in motion it is inherently more impressive. here is a video introducing a project to develop a motion design center in france, which will create a forum to exhibit “motion plus design.”
do you have any places you frequent to find inspiring graphics on the move? Or any thoughts on why people are more affected when visual communication meets movement?
