Jessica Hagy Business Cards

Most business cards are so perfectly ordinary that I never know what to do with them. I never think to reference them and so they just sort of amass in my wallet, in the bottom of my purse, in the nooks and crannies of my car. One day I felt bad for the lot of them as I'm sure existing as unused clutter was the same fate their forefathers had suffered. I gathered them all up and put them in my desk drawer where I figured they could at least be comforted by the sight of one another.

However, the other day, someone gave me a business card, and it was so cool I had to share it. They're by Jessica Hagy and are from Moo. They have all sorts of designs and styles, but here are a few I really liked from her. Aren't they so splendidly awesome? I mean, come on, she uses Venn diagrams.


Update: Thanks, vegarduel, for this awesome link showcasing a whole stash of neat business card designs. Also, just wanted to let you know that I'll be quitting my job tomorrow so that I can go work for this company:

I don't even know what they do, but that doesn't even matter. I just want to be able to give these out.

Or maybe, I won't quit, IF I can convince the right people at work to switch our business cards to these:

Wow! I love the idea of using diagrams on a business card. I am a graphic designer myself and i prefer clever ideas to just beautiful design. Actually you can do so much with business cards. It's amazing!

If more people would use some creativity in designing their business cards, I think they might not end up in the bottom of people's purses or in the floor board of the car. Wish I would have thought of that! Thanks for sharing!

They are pretty cool

So is this someone's legitimate business card or just a humorous item to store in your wallet? Very cool though!

Jana said...

Yup, the design was the back (?) of a legitimate business card. Fun, huh?

Cham said...

Yes, fun indeed! After reading this, I went straight to Moo's website and made my own postcards! I also checked out more of Hagy's designs. Very cool!

Oh wow these rock! Every day I walk past a copy store with a sandwich board advertising great rates on business cards, and never once have I considered stopping in. That may have to change...

Nice!

The coolest buisness card I've ever seen was one of those mini cd's you can put in your computer. When you played it, it had a little sales pitch and a "what our company can do for you" type of thing.
