BP&O Collections — Business Cards No.3

Curated by Richard Baird.


The third collection of business cards reviewed and published on BP&O. These typically balance graphic design, material choice and print finish and often utilise colour, type, form and texture contrast to contribute to a distinctive brand identity. As with the first and second sets, this selection features uncoated and coated papers, edge painted detail, surface embosses, foils, dyed and unbleached boards and triplex material processes. Featured studios include Werklig, Heydays, Bielke+Yang and Build.

This post was published as a quick way to browse through BP&O’s content and get access to older but equally interesting projects through different themes, in this case business cards, and expands upon previous posts under the category BP&O Collections. This series can be subscribed to here. If you have any suggestions for further themes 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.
