Even in the world of mobile address books and Bluetooth syncing, there’s still a place for the humble business card. Not only does it allow you to inject a little of you or your company’s personality into the proceedings (have you tried doing that with a vCard?) but there are still plenty of people for who a piece of card is the holy grail of making contacts.
There’s plenty of scope for updating the type of information displayed on it, though. Take Kim Bost‘s business card design which simply provides space for a “status update”.
In case you think that font looks familiar, it’s fittingly the same one used by Facebook ? Klavika from Process Type Foundry according toBen Pieratt.
It’s a cool concept, though perhaps not the most ideal if you actually want to contact Kim again in the future. Perhaps there’s details on the back – at very least a web site and a Twitter name.
If you had this business card, would you always write an honest status on it, knowing that it could sit around on someone’s desk for months?
