It never hurts to have a good business card design. While they seem like a basic staple (and often times overlooked) of any firm, a good business card can make a break a sale for a company. Having a flashy business card could be the difference of a potential client picking up the phone and calling back or throwing it aside and waiting for someone else to come along.

In my research of current business card trends, I learned that cards come in a wide array of variety. I’d like to share with you what I found to be the 5 most flashy cards that I’ve found that are tailored for urban planning or design firms:

  • A professional example of how only a couple colors and a card dominated by a logo can be memorable.

  • Here’s a cardthat gets it right: relaxing font coupled with a simple design. It doesn’t get much better!

  • There’s nothing wrong with simplicity, so long as it’s catchy. This card is neat, organized, and clear.

  • I know the image isn’t the greatest- but I think the checkerboard design is really catchy here. It gives off a sleek yet sophisticated feel;

  • This is probably my favorite card of the group- flashy, interesting, and informative: it will catch an employer’s eye.

I judged the cards on the following:

  • Text - How readable is the text? Do font styles and sizes work well together?;
  • Visual Attractiveness - Does it catch the eye? Do the colors go well together?;
  • Purpose - Does it accomplish its purpose of conveying contact information?;
  • Print Quality - While this is hard to judge by simply looking at e-marketing internet pictures, a card with high print quality is much more meaningful than a blotchy, uneven print quality.

What do you feel are some of the more important characteristics of business card design?
