Minimalissimo


Business card design is a challenging art. Rather than having each field separately labeled in a traditional way, I really love this minimalist design as the email address contains all relevant info, except the phone number.

Great idea!

  1. I think this is a great idea. There could be an argument to highlight his full name though as well as add a phone number, which is always important. Still, I’d use this idea too.

  2. I think this an awesome design, but it’s not intuitive enough.

    At first blush I thought: “Very cool! So minimalist! I bet the ‘www’ and ‘twitter’ are placeholders so you can also write your website and twitter account. I bet I could also add a phone number, too.”

    Only after seeing the template on this page did I realized that the ‘email’, ‘www’, and ‘twitter’ were marking the start and end of each part of information. I hope it’s just me. But I have to admit it took me over 30 seconds to understand the card.

    Still – so awesome!

  3. Nice!

    You could make it even more minimalist by taking away the labelling and using colour to contrast the Twitter @username from the other text.

  4. Pretty neat!

    This could be on one side and the phone no, in the same font through the middle of the other side. Job done.

  5. A scientific theory should be as simple as possible, but no simpler. Make that a business card should be as simple…

  6. We already know it’s an email address so drop it and move twit above.

  7. What is the purpose of this card? What evidence do we have that the card is effective at accomplishing that purpose? While this is very pretty, it leaves me wondering whether it is of any use at all to Boris’ prospective customers.

    The url is a blog, and the homepage is dominated by a listing of entries. You’d have to scroll a long way down to find out what Boris does and where he is employed. There is not even a heading to indicate the major topic of his blog.

    Most of us use a business card to remind others of what we do, why they should care, and only when they are convinced that there is a reason to contact us does the contact information matter.
