BP&O Collections — Business Cards No.1

Curated by Richard Baird.

The Best Business Cards 2014

A gallery of the most interesting business cards reviewed and published on BP&O. These typically and effectively balance graphic design, material and print finish and often utilise colour, type, form and texture contrast to contribute to a distinctive brand identity. This collection features uncoated and coated papers, edge painted detail, surface embosses, foil finishes, dyed boards, duplex and triplex material processes as well as folds and die cuts.

This post was created as another way to quickly browse through BP&O’s content and get access to older but equally interesting projects through different themes, in this instance business cards. These posts will continue to be expanded upon in the near future and will include menus, logotypes and stationery as well as more business cards under the category The Best of BP&O. This series can be subscribed to here. If you have any suggestions for further topics let me know.

Support BP&O

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
