The Best of BP&O — Business Cards No.4

Opinion by Richard Baird Posted 31 October 2014


The fourth collection of business cards reviewed and published on BP&O. These typically balance graphic design, material choice and print finish, and utilise colour, type, form and texture contrast to contribute to a distinctive brand identity. As with earlier sets, this selection includes uncoated and coated papers, edge painted detail, surface embosses, foils, metallic inks, dyed, mixed fibre and unbleached boards as well as duplex material processes. Featured studios include Bond, Two Times Elliott, Freytag Anderson and Graphical House.

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 The Best of BP&O.
