Business cards: Awesome or old?
Society today is more reliant than ever on technological breakthroughs. Smart phones and internet tablets seem to be dominating our day-to-day activities. In a world where technology seems to be taking over, is there any room left for the lowly business card?
Well, for me and Ash here at Sterling Effort headquarters, we think there definitely is. Nothing beats a well dressed business card and my good friend and colleague Patrick Bateman would like to take a few minutes of your time to explain why:
Joking aside, we didn’t want our cards to be the usual generic bin fodder that most cards in circulation today often are. This thought sparked an idea to put our faces on the front of the cards; a terrifying notion for any who have had the misfortune of seeing us in real life. We therefore settled on the ‘A Scanner Darkly’ idea pictured below.
In our minds, business cards have a certain panache, an amount of memorability to them which an email signature or a text message full of dreary contact details simply does not deliver. We want to be different, be memorable, be the guys whose cards you keep.
So how did we do? Would you banish these cards straight to your bin? Are they quirky enough to make the grade? Or have we simply wasted an inordinate amount of time and money on business cards which have simply been made obsolete by the current technological age? Please let us know.
Undoubtedly some tree murder did occur in the production of these epic, or terrible business cards.
