Architecture-inspired business cards by Vistaprint.com
Vistaprint.com has introduced a new collection of over 100 business cards inspired by trends in modern architecture and design. The designers decided to create the fully-customizable documents as a counterpoint to our successful antique-inspired business cards.
The creative team found inspiration from a range of design blogs (including Dezeen), trend reports, and their surroundings in Barcelona, where the office is located. The Shanghai Expo was opening as they began work on the business identity sets, so it served as a particularly inspiring source.
The team riffed on fabrication techniques such as laser-cutting and etching in their designs. In addition, rigorous structural elements came into play.
Vistaprint typically creates industry-specific designs for small business owners, but these business cards were aimed at providing a broadly applicable stylistic offering that could appeal to an aesthetically exacting range of customers: architects, engineers, programmers, DJ’s, consultants, and high-end craftsmen, among others.
In the last six months, Vistaprint.com has established a full strategy and design team in their Barcelona-based office to address the needs of markets in Europe. Their efforts have resulted in over 500 business identity designs targeting European trends, including the ones seen above. To see more designs, check out vistaprint.com
