One of the most ubiquitous pieces of printed matter, the business card presents a unique design conundrum. Constrained by budgetary and size restrictions, how do you present a person, or a business as identity, and contact details, all in a very small space and still have some fun? In an age dominated by digital media, the first two books in this series revealed the unique potential of the humble business card as an opportunity for creative greetings, firmly stamped with the user as personality. With thousands of examples constantly being exchanged around the world, "Business Cards 3" features over 200 innovative interpretations of the humble business card, from around the world. Collected from designers and clients across a wide range of industries, highlighting materials, formats, and production methods that push the boundaries of this genre, the result is a book full of inspiring surprises.
