10 Fabulous Buisness Card Designs

It’s that time of the year again. I happily spent a few hours yesterday trying to sort out my new business card for this next year. I sketched out a few ideas while sipping some sangria yesterday. I think I have the beginnings of a funky and fabulous card. Of course, I would never have gotten this far without the help of other inspiring designers. Here are ten business card designs I used as inspiration for next years design. You can view these and many more unique designs at one of my favorite websites, BusinessCards24.com.

Ecofont by SPRANQ

This fabulous font was created by Colin Willems from SPRANQ, a creative communications agency based in the Netherlands. The font was designed to help conserve our ink cartridges (or toner) when printing. It works by omitting parts of the letter. The font might not look very usable when enlarged, but it is perfectly usable once reduced.

The designers conducted extensive tests trying to figure out what shapes would work best to conserve ink. After many long hours, they discovered that adding small circles to the font resulted in a product that uses up to 20% less ink. The Ecofont is free to download from their website, and it is available for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux.

Beautiful Eco-Friendly Stationary From Ecojot

I noticed a few of these fantastic designs a few months ago, but I only recently re-discovered the name of the company. Ecojot is a range of 100% post-consumer recycled paper products from Canada. The designers only use bio-degradable inks and glues, all of their packaging is corn-based and none of the paper they use comes from new trees.

I really fancy their designs and other stationary products. However, I don’t know if you can purchase them in the UK. They do offer them at Whole Foods, but I haven’t seen them at my local branch. They would make the perfect designer gift. For more information visit Ecojot.com.

10 Beautiful Wedding Invitations

I actually bought mine last minute at WH Smith. I really wasn’t thinking about it when I purchased them. I was more concerned with the color matching my cake. Then, a friend of mine let me know that they looked like little kid party invitations. I was a bit embarrassed, but it really didn’t matter. They got the job done, and they were sassy.

I might have purchased my invites on the run, but that didn’t stop me from looking for beautifully designed options and examples. I am really crushing on the invites printed on paper that you can plant and grow flowers from.

I don’t know who the retro tin can design belongs to, but it’s just too fabulous to not write about. I would have loved to have something like this design. If anyone knows who designed it please let me know.
