Creative business cards

A business card is probably the most important institutional advertising a company or professional can have. It should be a reflection of the company's core values, and a creative business makes a huge difference of the first impression people have about you or your company. Marketers and advertisers are always thinking about how to make brands memorable for their customers. So here's a suggestion. Before anything, take a good look at your business card. Don't think of it as a piece of paper with your contact info, but as a piece of your communication plan, with concept, art direction, copy and everything else. Here's some cool examples that may inspire you:
