30 Unconventional Business Cards

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Story By VIGNESH RAMACHANDRAN

Yes, more traditional business practices are going digital these days. Though sometimes, a good ol’ physical business card is just as effective for that networking event, trade fair or random grocery store encounter.

But to make yourself memorable, leave behind the ho-hum, stock-designed business cards in favor of something a bit more creative. Who knows? It might be worth that little extra investment when your company stands out from the stack of cards already on everyone’s desk.

We scoured the Internet and found some pretty clever designs. Check out our list below of 30 creative business cards (in no particular order) — they leave quite the impression.

1. Face to a Name

Truly put a face to a name with this design by REACTOR.

5 Colors and What They Say About Your Brand

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Everywhere you look it seems companies are altering something about themselves, whether it’s fine-tuning their logos, changing their names or slogans, or just shifting their business models. Take Apple for instance. In the late-90’s, Steve Jobs and Co. were nearly bankrupt until they shifted their focus to mobile technology. Now, thanks to products like the iPhone, iPod and iPad, they’re ruling the world as the most popular brand.

A strong brand identity is crucial to any business’s future, and the June issue of Advantagesmagazine has a great story on how to make your brand — and your client’s brand — a powerhouse. Check out this article now for great expert advice, and in the meantime, here are 5 colors and what they say about your brand’s logo:

  • BLUE: It’s arguably one of the most popular choices for a brand color, as it puts people at ease (think about the ocean and blue skies, ahhh). Blue also expresses authority, trust, intelligence and wisdom.
  • RED: It actually increases your heart rate, so it’s no surprise that red is a passionate and visceral color. Red expresses action, desire and power.
  • PURPLE: If you’re trying to be mysterious and rich, go for this popular hue. Purple also seems to exude royalty and elegance. This is a great color for showing creativity.
  • BLACK: Companies use this color if they want to appear prestigious, valuable and sophisticated. Like the dress, it’s a classic.
  • GREEN: You don’t have to be an environmental company to go green. This color says calmness, serenity, health and wealth.

Tell us … what is your color? Post in the comments!

Chicago Moves Toward Plastic Bag Ban

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014
The Chicago City Council will consider a proposal this week that calls for prohibiting chain and franchise stores in the city from providing customers with single-use plastic bags.
If enacted, a ban could spark opportunities for increased sales of reusable branded bags in America’s third most populous city.

Last week, Chicago City Council’s Health and Environmental Protection Committee voted in favor of the plastic bag prohibition. The decision cleared the way for the full council to start debating the pros and cons of the proposal at its Wednesday meeting.

Calling a crackdown on plastic bags a win for the environment, Mayor Rahm Emanuel said he supports the ban. “It’s part of an overall strategy to improve the quality of life in our city and give our children and our families a better shot at a better future,” he said at a news conference.

Under the proposed legislation, independent stores and restaurants could continue to use plastic bags, but chains and franchises would be barred from giving them out unless they were a type of plastic bag that can be composted at commercial facilities. Significantly for ad specialty companies, stores would have to provide or sell reusable bags or recyclable paper bags.

Retailers would also have the option of charging for paper or compostable plastic bags. Fees of 5 or 10 cents per bag have been instituted in California municipalities where bans have been put in place, and New York City recently proposed a measure that would include a fee on bags given out by retailers and street vendors. Proponents of the Chicago measure aim to see it enacted by the summer of 2015.
