The Best of BP&O — Business Cards No.11

The eleventh collection of business cards designed as part of new brand identity project, reviewed and published on BP&O in 2016. Between them, these show how colour, type, form, texture and contrast, delivered through a combination of graphic design, material choice and print finish, contribute to a distinctive and communicative brand identity. As with previous sets, this includes uncoated and coated boards, coloured papers, surface embosses, foils and edge painted detail. Featured studios include Neue, Raw Color, Mucho and dn&co, plus many more. Be sure to click through to get a sense of how these fit within a broader brand identity program and the communicative intentions that underpin their aesthetic.
