Ever since I first watched the memorable business card scene from American Psycho, I became obsessed with business card design.
While I still appreciate the beauty of the classic off-white business card, there are so many beautifully inconsistent, hand-written, uniquely shaped business cards that have morphed into an extension of one’s personal identity rather than profession. Personally, I’ve started my own collection of business cards myself. Let’s take a look at some of my favorite designs from the business card flickr page:

Graphic designer, Jose Antonio Contreras had a lot of fun designing his card.
Burgers deserve cards too!
Beautifully imperfect, delicate, handcrafted
Looks like a travel/ ticket tag done in the early 1900′s
The burnt edge is a nice touch
The art of surprise is hard to achieve!
