What makes a good business card/identity design? “It must be first and foremost unique, created specifically for the person or company it represents. The business card is like the identity card of a brand. Another important aspect is the small format. It is never easy to work with small formats, but if the design is well thought out, a logo and coordinated image works well on both large and small layouts. That's why it is such a litmus test for good design.”
