Creative Business Cards | part 2
These are the business cards of integrated marketing agency Base One. They form part of the Base One Believe campaign, which aimed to discover ways to start a conversation, interact and work with each other. To help “go beyond business as usual.” To give the campaign personality, two characters – in the shape of Bs – known as the B-Boys, were designed and built into 3D models. These figures would appear in ads, a microsite and, eventually, these business cards. The Believe campaign asked people to talk about their beliefs – the things they wish they could achieve, no matter how far-fetched. One thing about the way that business cards are used is that often when they’re handed over to someone you have just met, it is done in a formal way. So we looked for a way of making it more informal and comfortable for both parties.

Here’s a stationery package that was recently designed for a sandwich shop. La Charcuterie is a deli/restaurant hybrid well known around Vancouver for serving up sandwiches filled with deli meats. To play off this, business cards were created to look like cold cuts then were strung in netting similar to the way salami’s and other cured meats are hung in delis. Finally, we printed meat stickers for the letterhead and envelopes made of butcher paper— the same paper they wrap their sandwiches in.

Problem: Number of yoga centers in Beirut were growing rapidly. Danielle Abisaab,
a yoga instructor for over 10 years needed to re-position herself. Premise: Most Yoga postures/exercises involve twisting of the body. We adapted this observation on to our business card design. Idea: We started by choosing a non-tearable and flexible paper to print our visiting card on. The messaging was then divided into two equal parts. With one half printed on the front and the other half on the back. To read the entire message the user would have to twist the visiting card. Folding lines were printed on both sides of the card to guide the user while twisting the visiting card. Results: The visiting card gave her business a new twist. Enquiries kept flowing and new students enrolled for yoga programs. What inspired: The flexible exercises in yoga, that involves stretching and twisting of body postures. Where printed: Dubai, UAE. What sort of material: PVC Material.
