Pop-up business cards
This is my own project that I undertook with the goal of creating something unique and interesting.
I realized, that 9 out of 10 business cards end up in a rubbish bin, and I wanted to change that by coming up with a unique design that will stand out from the crowd. Each card is completely hand made. I've created several different layouts for various needs.
This is my favourite layout, inspired by a pop-up book by Benjamin Lacombe. The butterfly wings are folded inside the card and open up with a spin, revealing its surprisingly large measures. This business card is the most difficult to assemble because each card has 9 separate parts.
It can be used by fashion designers, wedding companies, beauty salons, luxury skincare brands etc.
This layout is called "The book" because when you open the folded part, the book pages, or butterfly wings, open as well. I used different designs to showcase this layout in an optimal way.
The book inside can be a company logo, or just a random object that supports the company nature. The only condition is that it has to be symmetrical.
I used this layout to make my own business cards. The flat logo moves from the cover to the inside of the card, creating a company logo display, that can be placed on a desk, exhibition stand or in shop shelving cabinets.
This design can be used by any company due to its simple and adjustable layout.
