Name card design

Not long after I arrived in KL there was a design conference (KLDW 2010) on. I thought this would be a great opportunity to meet some design-minded friends! I bought my tickets and awaited the first day.

Late the night before, I suddenly realised I had nothing to offer anyone should I get talking. I wanted to have a card of some sort so people wouldn’t forget my details. In the middle of the night I started thinking about something interesting I could do (this was a design conference after all).

As we hadn’t been in KL long, and I’d only just set up my workstation, I had limited resources. But I thought I could do something interesting with a sheet of A4 paper and the printer.

The end result uses one sheet of paper with a slit in the centre, and no binding of any kind. The final design allows for eight sides, which is perfect for the four pieces of information I wanted to give: My name, my Malaysian hand/mobile phone number, my email address, and my website address.

I handed only three out (I’m really bad at meeting people), but I have a few left and actually gave one out at my first MANZA meet (more on that in a later post).
