This business card isn't for someone who is overly traditional, but for fans of minimalism, this is ingenious...

Minimalist design

In his quest to order new set of Moo cards, Canadian technologist Boris Mus took a swing at a minimalist design that would creatively convey all of his information on the most spatially constricting business cards on the market. On one side of his cards, he will feature custom photography and on the other is the above design that is a genius portrayal of contact information.

Boris said, “Rather than having each field separately labeled, I tried to uncover as much information as possible within my email address. Hidden inside are my first name, last name, website, and twitter account!”

This idea is a huge win for professionals using their personal or business name as their website and twitter name and a loss for the Gmailers of the world. This design would be fabulous with listing photos or a Realtor’s face on one side (come on, we all know real estate professionals love putting their faces in print). We don’t, however, encourage anyone try this concept that has a long business name or email as it will have to be tiny font which will minimize the impact of the brilliance of this design.
