The business card is a part of a designer's promotion tool. Whether we're meeting our potential client for the first time or introducing our design service to new people, we can always try to win their heart by using a well-designed business card. If the client were already impressed by our portfolio then we should double the impression by giving a beautiful business card. Perhaps the beautifully designed business card could encourage the client into contacting us.
As inspiration, this time we have collected some examples of business card designs. Every business card was submitted personally by 38 talented designers in the community and we would like to share them with our readers.
PS: You may also want to take a look at some of the designer creative workstations too!
