Given the number of layoffs, with no doubt many more to come, there wouldn’t be a better time to go out on your own. The first and most essential thing to have when promoting yourself is a business card to create buzz for your new enterprise. Can’t think of anything to help you stand out from the run of the mill? How about these inspired designs.
Kevin Mitnick uses a toolset to promote his security company; Viewzi uses a clear card promotes their search engine; Yuka Suzuki uses bobby pins on her hair and makeup artist card; Flow's card is a rolled up miniature yoga mat; a Greek restaurant uses broken bits of plate; Sean Kinney, a graphic design uses a razor blade. Perhaps one of the cleverest ones is the stretch band for a personal trainer, and Chris Fisher, a radio announcer, uses a comb. Now just where can you find a printer to make them up for you?
