We’re used to seeing memorable business cards used to demonstrate a creative’s talents, but motion designer Adam Glucksman’s project is one of the most impressive we’ve ever come across. Hs 720 unique laser-cut business cards are each a still from his short animation Vavohu, which explores the idea of cosmogenesis.
There’s a whole load of insight into the painstaking process he used over on his blog, but the top line is that he has found a way of initiating all sorts of discussions with both potential and existing clients about his skills and his ideas. It is rare to come across a project that manages both to be creatively innovative as well as perfectly fulfilling what it’s trying to do.
