How do you speak to someone who you first met? Japanese people often start to talk about their business cards because we exchange them as greeting. Exchanging of business cards is one of Japanese business manner to introduce each other. Recently I had an opportunity to meet Japanese web designers and developers and I got many creative business cards! I’ll share some of them!
Joined Web Designers + Developers Party!
My friend who is a web designer in Vancouver, Canada temporary returned to Japan and hosted a web designers meet up in Osaka, Japan!
I joined it putting on this Kabuki mask because I’m shy hahah But I took this off in 1 hour because I couldn’t breath well.
I’ve Got Many Business Cards!
I’ll share some of creative business cards!
Web Creator Box Mana
First, this is my business card letter pressed version. This design is inspired by my new portfolio website design.
My friend who hosted this meetup. Illustration is from his web manga バンクーバーな僕ら.
From FNM-Design. This is a first time to see cork card!
His normal size card. Skill set using a chart is also creative.
From ZebraWolf. Flat style illustrations!
From Two-ways. You’ll see a rabbit when you incline a bit.
From Webクリエイターのメモ帳. Vivid colour logo mark is emphasised.
From Webimemo. Very cute and girlish design as herself!
From nayo*. Nice textured paper!
From YATのBLOG. I like an emphasised vivid pink on a back side.
From LIG. I was a bit wondered to see his business card because LIG often do something funny! But it looks very minimal and cool :)
From Gouten Net. Sketch book style paper is very good to the touch.
Web design blog: WEBCRE8.jp. It’s good idea to use a logo mark if it’s popular.
From ROLO. Design is very minimal and you’ll like its smooth and soft touch!
From Kana-Lier. It’s used bright colour and feels full of girly charm.
From Japanese cloud sourcing website: Lancers. Coloured area is coated with slick wash.
It’s easy for me to remember her because she often used a pink camera that on a business card. This is nice idea to put something that you often use.
From Creative memomemo. I like that yellow little bird!
From WEBNOTE. It’s a little bit hard to see but it’s used a translucence plastic card.
Very adorable illustration is very memorable! Twitter: ナツミーヌ
From Backless. Cool colour and unique illustration!
From voyage note. Filled purple colour looks very elegant!
I’d like to see your business card too!
