Here’s one that stood out in this year’s Chip Shop Awards.
Created for a bespoke tailor by graphic designer Greg Healy (broken link removed, 2014). Creative, appropriate, inexpensive (you could finish those yourself with a ruler and craft knife).
With the aid of laser assisted milling, nine micro compositions consisting of circles, triangles and Ritornell’s contact information were applied onto a long musicbox paper stripe. Before handing out the cards to interested addressees, each individual subdivision is played back through a specially designed musical box — providing every business card receiver with a tailor made musical experience.
A bit more card inspiration in the stationery category.
